Flank Steak is a lean, flavorful, boneless cut of beef. It comes from the abdominal region, just behind the plate and in front of the rear quarter of the cow. It has a very flat and long shape to it, with minimal marbling throughout. This is a great red meat option for those looking to stay in shape or drop some unwanted pounds! Try leaving it in your favorite marinade overnight to deeply enhance its flavor and tenderness.
How To Cook & Use
Due to its shape and thinness, flank is best cooked hot and fast on the grill. You can also slice it before cooking and toss it in a pan on the stovetop for a quick cook. Popularly used for fajitas or tacos, you can also enjoy this steak in a salad or simply paired with grains and greens. Some more unique ways of using it is for butterflying into pinwheels or braciole. You’ll discover quickly how versatile this cut of beef truly is! Always slice flank steak across the grain after cooking for tender bites!
