Broiled Flank Steak

Yum

We picked up a 1-1/2 lb. flank steak last week, and I had all intentions of grilling this to perfection. The weather in Western NY just didn’t cooperate that day, so we did the next best thing was to broil it.

Flank steak is a long flat cut from the belly or butt of the cow, and is used in many dishes such as London broil, Asian Stir fry and also famous as the steak for Fajitas.

We decided to make a dry hand rub, after mixing the ingredients we rubbed both sides of the flank stake, set the oven on broil. The steak was 1-1/2 lbs. so we broiled it for about 10 to 12 minutes per side. Cutting the steak against the grain we had nice juicy slices and served with rice and kale this made a delicious meal.

Here are the seasonings we used for the rub:

4 tsp. onion powder
2 tsp. garlic powder
2 tsp. mustard powder
¼ tsp. dried thyme
¼ tsp. ground black pepper
1 tsp sea salt


As always thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy.

  2. Good to hear that steak turned out just fine broiled inside instead of on the grill. Better luck next time with Mother Nature!

    1. Hi Ruth, Yes, it did turn out okay. Here in Western NY we had rain 22 out of 30 days in June. It hasn't rained in 4 days, but here we are on the 5th day and it is raining. Oh well!!!! Thanks so much for stopping by.

  3. Got to try this one. Years ago my husband used to grill flank steak after I marinated it in Italian dressing. It was always tender, definitely going to do this one today.
