Grilled Marinated Flank Steak via Chef Emilie

Chef Emilie

Fire up the grill  tonight ... your outdoors will get great with the flavors and the aromas of Grilled Marinated Flank Steak !

Whether you're cooking chicken, burgers, steak, fish on the grill, a tasty marinade gives taste and tenderness to every meat. You can use almost everything you have in your kitchen to make your own marinade. Today, I decided to buy a piece of Flank that I marinated with : Olive Oil, Garlic, Onions, Basil, Thyme, Parsley, dried Herbes de Provence, Barbecue Sauce and few drops of Tabasco. Check out the recipe below.  The result: a serious crowd pleaser. 

La recette de Grilled Marinated Flank Steak

Courtesy of Emilie, your French Chef

Ingredients for 4 servings:

- 2 pounds Flank Steak

- 1/3 cup olive oil

- 1/2 chopped onion (white or red)

- 2 cloves garlic, minced

- 1/3 cup of chopped fresh Herbs : Parsley, Thyme, Basil ...

- 1/3 cup BBQ Sauce

- 3 drops of Tabasco

- Salt and Pepper

Chop and mix all ingredients to get a marinade full of flavor, and rub the meat with the marinade.

Score the surface of the steak with 1/4 inch deep knife cuts, about an inch apart, across the grain of the meat. 

Put the meat in a freezer bag during at least 4 hours (it gives enough time to the ingredients to flavor and tenderize the meat).

After 4 hours, Preheat the grill to high temperature. 

30 minutes before grilling, remove the bag from the fridge, and let the bag at room temperature.

Remove the steak from the plastic and scrape to remove the steak from marinade as possible. Put the marinade in a small pan and bring to a boil.

Place the steak on the hot grill, about 4 to 6 minutes each side (4minutes is for medium rare).

When the steak is cooked, remove from the grill and let stand about 5 minutes before slicing. Slice meat into strips thin enough, diagonally against the grain of the meat.

Serve with the Sauce, Salad, or my favorite Gratin Dauphinois.

Bon Appétit !!
