Flank Steak

After running errands all day, I couldn't wait to have a delicious Sunday night dinner — flank steak was on the menu. I like flank steak because it lends itself well for leftover sandwiches the next day because it is so thin. This recipe only calls for 30 minutes or more of marinading time. Of course the longer you marinade it, the better, but I only had time for 30 minutes and it still had tons of flavor.
I then boiled the remaining marinade into a sauce which was fantastic spooned over the steak. A perfect start to the week ahead!

Flank Steak
2/3 cup red wine
2/3 cup soy sauce
6 gloves of garlic, minced
1/3 cup chopped parsley
ground pepper
Flank steak, about 2 lbs

1 Whisk together the marinade and pour over flank in a large ziplock bag. Seal and let sit in the fridge for at least 30 minutes. Remove and pat dry when ready.
2 Heat grill (I used my george foreman, of course!) and cook on about 3-4 minutes on each side. Remove and place on a cutting board to rest. 
3 While the meat is resting, pour the remaining marinade from the ziplock bag into a small saucepan and bring to a boil. The reduce to a simmer until thickened, about 2 minutes.
4 Once the meat has rested, slice diagonally against the grain and serve with sauce.

This looks great! I love flank steak. My favorite thing about it is that it's a cheaper cut of meat with TONS of flavor!

All that garlic makes a HUGE difference, too. Nice, easy recipe for those times when you need flavor fast.
