Grilled Marinated Flank Steak ~ tender, juicy and loaded with flavor this marinated steak grills in under 10 minutes!

I love the simplicity of summer and laid back entertaining. Potluck is always fun (and delicious) because let’s face it, it’s always our goal to bring an A-game dish to share.

The host (you and me) handle what may look like the heavy lifting (meat and fresh fruit sangria) but the reality is that this part is actually easy and effortless because this flank steak grills in under 10 minutes.

Today I’m not only sharing a marine recipe that leaves you with melt in your mouth flank steak loaded flavor, but my best grilling tips and I’m taking the mystery out of  “slicing against the grain”.

Grilled Marinated Flank Steak and Roasted Corn Salsa ~ tender, juicy flank steak sliced thin and topped with roasted corn-jalapeno citrus salsa.

Flank steak is one meat on rotation all summer long at my house. It’s almost goof-proof, unbelievably good and because I’m sharing my tips tender, juicy flavor packed beef in minutes, I think it’ll become your favorite too.

Sometimes I grill bell peppers and onions and make fajitas but today I’ll slice it thin and top with a salsa that practically screams summer: roasted sweet corn, fresh tomatoes and spicy jalapeno. Some bright colored bell peppers, a light squeeze of lime and a little cilantro makes this salsa burst with flavor.

This recipe makes even entry level home cooks like the kitchen ninja we all aspire to be.

Steak Sandwich Recipe

Dinner | May 12, 2016 | By

I’ve been a grilled cheese sandwich eater pretty much all my life. You could put virtually any kind of cheese between two pieces of bread and grill it and I’ll be in comfort food heaven. When I was in high school, lunchtime meant driving to my friend Joan’s house and either opening cans of Chef Boyardee Ravioli or getting out the skillet and making classic grilled cheese sandwiches ~ white bread with slices of orange cheese from cellophane wrappers. Because we’d chat  gossip while the sandwiches cooked, they were routinely a bit darker than most would consider edible.  We’d dip those toasted sandwiches with orange cheese oozing out the side into a pile of ketchup ~ mmmm delicious. To some the ketchup thing defies logic. To me, it’s still the only way to eat a ‘classic’ grilled cheese. My husband isn’t a ketchup eater at all and would probably eat the cellophane the cheese came in before he’d eat ketchup. This Steak Sandwich Recipe is his idea of a grilled cheese – gooey, cheesy and packed with flavorful steak and sauteed peppers and onions. You know the meateaters’ motto ~ ‘there’s plenty of room for God’s creatures. . .right next to the mashed potatoes’.
