  • Flank steak
  • Marinade or some olive oil, salt, and pepper


  • If you like your steak medium well or well done (no pink), put your oven rack at the highest setting, then turn your oven to broil before you start prepping, and let it come up to temperature.  If you like your steak more rare (yay!) don't preheat.
  • Rub the steak all over with your favorite marinade (here's my favorite marinade!).  If you don't have any marinade, rub some olive oil all over, then sprinkle a bit of salt and pepper on all sides.  I like to add a little garlic powder as well.  You can do this part up to 24 hours in advance, and keep it in the fridge.
  • Lay steak on a sheet pan and place on the highest rack (closest to the broiler).  Turn on broiled and set timer for 4 minutes.  Then flip steak over and return under the broiler for an additional four minutes.  This should yield a beautiful medium rare on the ends and rare in the center (as pictured). If you like your steak more well done, return it to the broiler in 90 second increments on each side until desired doneness is reached.
  • Allow to rest a few minutes, then slice thinly AGAINST the grain.
  • ENJOY!
