Ingredients & Cooking

Ingredients:

  • 1 beef Flank Steak (about 1-1/2 to 2 pounds)
Marinade:
  • 1/3 cup fresh lime juice
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro leaves
  • 1 tablespoon packed brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons minced chipotle chilies in adobo sauce
  • 2 tablespoons adobo sauce (from chilies)
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon freshly grated lime peel

Cooking:

  1. Combine marinade ingredients in small bowl; mix well. Place beef Flank Steak and marinade in food-safe plastic bag; turn steak to coat. Close bag securely and marinate in refrigerator 6 hours or as long as overnight.

  2. Remove steak from marinade; discard marinade. Place steak on grid over medium, ash-covered coals. Grill, covered, 11 to 16 minutes (over medium heat on preheated gas grill, 16 to 21 minutes) for medium rare (145°F) to medium (160°F) doneness, turning occasionally. Carve steak across the grain into thin slices. Season with salt, as desired.

    Cook's Tip:

    To broil, place steak on rack in broiler pan so surface of beef is 2 to 3 inches from heat. Broil flank steak 13 to 18 minutes for medium rare to medium doneness, turning once.
