How To Cook Flank Steak:
Grass fed flank steak can be cooked a number of different ways. Because of this cut's somewhat tough muscle fibers we recommend a quick marinade and cooking to (at most) a medium doneness.
Flank steaks feature in many fajita and taco recipes. For example, you can cut flank steak into strips, put them in a marinade of lime juice and fajita seasonings overnight, then throw them on the grill the next day and pair them with your favorite fajita or taco fillings. Grass fed flank steak also works well when cooked with peppers and vegetables in stir try, or cut into small pieces and cooked with onions, peppers and whatever else you like on a kabob.
- Air fryer flank steak: Marinade steak for 1-24 hours, preheat air fryer to 400 degrees and cook 5-7 minutes per side until desired level of doneness is reached.
- Flank steak in oven: Preheat broiler and place marinated steak in broiler pan. Once at temperature, broil steak for 5-6 minutes per side until desired level of doneness is reached.
- Sous vide flank steak: With the sous vide method you do not have to marinate your steak ahead of time. Place steak in sous vide bag with 1/4 cup olive oil, herbs, salt and pepper. Set temperature to 132 degrees and sous vide for 2 1/2 hours. Once done, pat dry and sear quickly in a pan to develop a crust.
- Grilled flank steak: Marinade steak for 1-24 hours prior to cooking, grill over medium heat for 5-7 minutes per side until desired level of doneness is achieved.
Marinade For Flank Steak:
Flank steaks are great at absorbing flavors, and because they can stand up to an overnight marinade they are able to adapt to any meal. Starting with a base of 1/4 cup of olive oil you can add any herbs, spice mixes or fruit juices you want to create unique flavor combinations.
How To Cut Flank Steak:
When serving, it's best to cut against the grain for more tenderness and a better eating experience. If making flank steak tacos it's best to first cut against the grain into strips then dicing the meat into cubes.
