While this steak is less tender than other cuts you can get, that doesn’t make it any less desirable. This steak has a beefy, robust flavor that only comes from its less tender area of the cut. Its toughness and flavor make it perfect for spicy dishes like fajitas or tacos. Carve this steak across the grain when slicing it for your meal to promote a bit of tenderness. The Beef Flank Steak is best prepared broiled or grilled, at a medium-well temperature. A nice marinade will tenderize the meat just enough and add to its already prominent flavor. Try cutting it into strips and add seasoning for a stir fry, or cut it into thin nuggets for a kabob.
