Garlic-Chile Flank Steak


From EatingWell:  June/July 2005

Serve this great-tasting, tender steak as part of a taco party or with a mixed green salad and sliced avocados.

8 servings, about 1.5 ounces each | Active Time: 25 minutes | Total Time: 1 hour 25 minutes (including 1 hour marinating time)



  1. Whisk garlic, vinegar, oil, ground chile, oregano, cumin and salt in a small bowl. Place steak in a shallow baking dish and pour marinade over it, turning to coat both sides. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour, turning once, or overnight.
  2. Preheat grill to high heat. Oil the grill rack (see Tip). Grill the steak until desired doneness, 5 to 6 minutes per side for medium. Transfer to a plate, cover with foil and let rest for 5 minutes. Slice the steak very thinly across the grain. Serve warm or chilled.
