Our Best Flank Steak Recipes

We love cooking with flank steak. It’s affordable, leaner than other cuts of beef and packed full of meaty flavor. Plus, it’s incredibly versatile. After cooking, slice against the grain (into thin strips) and it’s ready for tacos, salads, grain bowls and more.

Simple Broiled Flank Steak with Herb Oil

Flank steak is a relatively lean cut of meat but full of flavor. This preparation is low on the fussiness factor: Put your seasoned steak on a preheated broiler pan and cook, no flipping needed. Just be sure to cut the meat against the grain-across, not parallel with, the visible lines of muscle fibers-so the steak will be tender, not chewy.
