It’s hot, Hot, Hot here in Chicago land!
It reached 100° today – so I wanted a quick and easy recipe for dinner.
I’ve got tons of Basil out in my herb garden and a flank steak!
With the staples on hand I came up with this recipe.
Marinated Grilled Basil Flank Steak
What you’ll need:
- 1 1/2 pound flank steak
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 1/2 cup chopped fresh basil
- 1-2 cloves minced garlic
- 1/4 cup Dijon mustard
- 3 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
Combine the olive oil, mustard, garlic, basil and the Worcestershire sauce and mix well. Place the flank steak in large zip lock bag, pour the marinade over it and squeeze bag so marinade covers all of the steak.
Marinate from 1- 4 hours. Remove the steak from the refrigerator 20 minutes prior to grilling/cooking (bringing the meat to room temperature ensures quicker cooking)
If it wasn’t so hot out I would of grilled the steak outside, no way am I headed out there! I cooked mine in a cast iron pan (love cast iron). Cook the steak 5 minutes on each side for medium rare. Make sure to let the steak sit for at least 5 minutes before slicing. For flank steak that is never chewy, slice thinly across the grain.
Just the kind of recipe I like, quick and easy, and oh so good!
