Marinated Grilled Flank Steak

by Lori on May 10, 2011

This was on our menu for our first night of the George Foreman Knock Out The Fat Weight Loss Challenge.

One word.


I strongly suggest you marinate this over night in the fridge. Flank Steak is a nice lean cut of mean but it is also one of the toughest so marinating it as long as possible will help make it a flavorful, tender piece of meat.

Ingredients for Marinate:

  • 1 1-1/2-pound beef flank steak
  • 1/3 cup red wine vinegar
  • 2 large cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon-style mustard
  • 2 tablespoons snipped fresh cilantro
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper

We, of course, grilled ours on the George Foreman Grill until it was done medium-well. Maybe 10 minutes?

Slice it going against the grain and very thin. We served it with sauteed onions, bell peppers, zucchini and garlic, avocado, salsa, low fat mozzarella cheese and whole wheat tortillas. Our serving size was 3oz of meat, 2 whole wheat tortillas, 1 cup of veggies, 1/4 cup of salsa and 2 slices of avocado. I also added some fresh cilantro as well.

The leftovers will be a topping for our salad tomorrow for lunch!

Thanks for giving me a marinade idea that does not include olive oil. I love the combination of herbs you used. We do the peppers and onions in the oven roasted with a little olive oil and salt-free greek seasonings.

I look forward to getting to know you and your blog. Nice to “meet” you at the twitter party last night.
