Fast Fire Flank Steak is one of the top favorite meals for the men at my house!
This was one of the earliest recipes I shared here on the blog back in 2008. It’s been a family favorite for a long time. Today you are getting an updated and improved version!
The Fast Fire Flank Steak is a standard here at the Wilkes’ house. If you ask any of the men at my house what their favorite dinner is, Fast Fire Flank Steak would be in the top two choices for all of them, if not the top choice. Throw in some kind of potato and they are in heaven! This would be the perfect dinner solution for Father’s Day if you are still looking for something for this weekend. But this flank steak is a good choice any day.
You do need to plan ahead a bit as the meat needs marinade at least 3 hours, I usually do it overnight in a large plastic zipper baggie. Score the meat on the diagonal before you put it in the marinade.
We cook ours on the grill but it could also be done under the broiler. Jim got a new grill for Father’s Day this year so we were anxious to try it out. Cook it hot and fast. We like it cooked to about medium. After cooking it slice it across the grain.
