This week, we had a dinner party for a friend who use in town to visit. I decided cook my favorite Flank Steak recipe would be perfect for serving dinner with friends. This recipe offers a robust beefy taste, despite its low fat content, making it an economical choice for steak enthusiasts. If you are not sure where this meat comes's the belly muscle of cow, it can become tough if cooked too long. The recipe below is one that I use to ensure my flank steak is both flavorful and tender. I like to marinate the beef overnight as it enhances the flavor when grilling this type of beef. If you are short on time, try to marinate the flank steak for at least 3 hours. When you purchase Flank Steak, you will find it is often packed with two slabs of beef so it serves more people.

Lets talk about grilling: Be sure to have the proper grilling utensil! Check out Amazon for great Grill Utensils if you are just starting out. I use long tongs so the heat doesn't burn my hands!
