Balsamic Flank Steak

This recipe calls for Balsamic Dressing {I like Marzetti Simply Dressed} or you can make your own. I’m too lazy.

This may seem a little labor intensive, but many of the tasks can be done ahead. The foil pack can be done a day ahead and left in the fridge until ready to cook. The Flank steak needs to be marinated at least 6 hours but it’s even better if marinated over night.

I like to serve this with roasted potatoes.



Balsamic Flank Steak with Peppers - Onions & Feta

Flank steak done right is a great lean beef choice. Cut it across the grain and it becomes very tender. In this recipe the flank steak marinated in balsamic vinaigrette. The vinaigrette can be made from scratch or store bought for simplicity. Smash the garlic but don't worry about removing the paper skin, you're not going to cook it so it doesn't need to be removed.
