I’ve kind of got a thing for flank steak lately. Something about the versatility of this cut has my experimental curiosity and creativity churning. This time I decided to give the oven a go. A simply dry rub coats the meat, pop it in the oven, and out comes a delicious dinner. I love easy meals like that. This meat has a flavorful crust and tender interior. You are also free to cook it to your desired level of doneness, whether it be medium rare, or well done. And as always with flank steak, for heavens sake cut against the grain! The grain is very clear in flank steak, making it more important than ever to cut against it to ensure a tender piece of meat.
