I make a lot of flank steak, and top round. They are lean, and cheap, and for whatever reason I prefer the chewier cuts than a more tender filet for example. But they do need a nice long marinade, that's for sure. Usually I go asian with marinades but that can get redundant. This was an awesome marinade that went great with my spicy chickpea poppers. Try it out next time you need a quick marinade! And also- if you don't have a nice heavy cast-iron grill pan, get one! I must use this thing 4 times a week. It is awesome! Little smokey though.
Tangy Grilled Flank Steak
1 large flank steak
4 tbsp lime juice (i actually only had bottled which worked out great)
2 tbsp meyer lemon EVOO
2 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
Combine juice, oil, and seasonings in a bowl and mix well. Place your steak in a ziploc bag and pour over. Don't worry that it doesn't look like very much marinade, you don't need a whole lot. Seal bag and leave it in the fridge for 3-7 hours. Grill steak 5 minutes per side and you're done!
What's new with everyone? I bet there are some awesome super bowl recipes floating around out there! I have a crab dip recipe I'm going to try. I haven't been posting too many recipes lately. One- I've been making a lot of the usual standby recipes, and two- I haven't been making any treats lately. I don't really miss them or feel like making them, although I know M wishes otherwise. If I want a treat I'll have some dried cherries, or a piece of dried mango, or some SF chocolate from TJ's. So, my pinterest board is kind of sad right now as a result. Oh well.
Have a great Super Bowl weekend everyone!
