Flank Steak with Grilled Tomatoes & Cucumber Herb Relish
Halved tomatoes keep their shape but get smoky-sweet flavor when grilled alongside the spice-rubbed steak in this healthy dinner recipe. The cool, crunchy cucumber relish is also spectacular served with grilled pork or chicken.
For tender sliced steak, particularly from tougher cuts like skirt and flank steak, thinly slice it crosswise against (or “across”) the grain. The grain is literally muscle fibers and looks like long, thin grooves in the meat.
