It’s grilling season y’all and if you’ve got meat lovers in your house then this recipe is for you! Mr. A Southern Soul and the boys are always up for a juicy, grilled ribeye or filet but sometimes you’ve got it mix things up a bit, so, let me introduce you to flank steak.
This inexpensive, flavorful cut of meat is best when cooked on the grill and can be used in so many ways. It’s great in a stir fry and is perfect for fajitas. To make sure that you get the most from your investment, here are a few tips –
- marinate the meat for 3 to 5 hours and not more than 24. Any acid in your marinade will start to break down the tissue and “cook” the meat.
- grill your steak over high heat.
- after letting the meat rest, slice it against the grain for optimum flavor.
We enjoyed this delicious steak with grilled onions, a fresh salad, glass of pinot noir out on the deck. With some good conversation and a few laughs we ended a busy day with grateful hearts and full tummies. So, step outside friends, fire up your grill and make your summer special!
