Simple Flank Steak


Flank is my go-to protein when I want a quick, easy and light dinner. Just because it’s the casserole-roast-bake holiday season doesn’t mean you can’t prepare a satisfying easy dinner from time to time. The flank is delicious on some greens, pasta, or in a sandwich!


Simple Flank Steak


  • 1 flank steak, about 1.5lbs
  • 2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • Grapeseed or other high smoke point oil
  • Espresso or other flavored sea salt, or just sea salt with some garlic powder if you don't have any available
  • Pepper


  1. Rub EVOO on both sides of the flank steak
  2. Season both sides of the flank steak generously with salt and pepper
  3. Oil the grill and heat grill on high
  4. When the grill is hot, place the flank steak down and grill for 5 minutes on each side (a total of 10 minutes will give you a medium-rare steak, add minutes and grill to your preferred doneness). Use a meat thermometer if you have one and grill to your desired internal temperature. 130-140 for medium rare, 140-150 for medium, and 150-160 for well-done.
  5. Once meat is done grilling, place it on a board and tent with aluminum foil. Let it rest for 10 minutes so the meat stays moist and juice doesn't escape when sliced open.
  6. Slice meat thinly against the grain. Serve.
