F-Factor Garlic-Chili Flank Steak

flank steak

Perfect for Memorial Day (or any day) grilling! This steak is succulent and tender, and the garlic chili spice rub gives it just the right amount of heat.  


INGREDIENTS (serves 4):

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • ¼ cup white vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons ground ancho chili pepper 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 pound flank steak, trimmed of fat

    1. Whisk garlic, vinegar, oil, ground chili, oregano, cumin and salt in a small bowl. Place steak in a shallow baking dish and pour marinade over it, turning to coat both sides.
    2. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes, turning once, or overnight.
    3. Preheat grill to high heat or broil in the oven. Grill the steak until desired doneness, 5 to 6 minutes per side for medium (or if broiling in the oven, cook for about 8 minutes per side).
    4. Transfer to a plate, cover with foil and let rest for 5 minutes.
    5. Slice the steak very thinly across the grain. Serve warm or chilled.
