Spicy Flank Steak

I have to say this is one of my FAVORITE recipes. I love it and my family loves it. We had this for dinner tonight and our oldest daughter said, "This is the BEST meal!" I have to admit that my husband is an awesome GRILLER. He always gets the meat perfect - never overcooked and that is so key with this flank steak. I highly recommend this recipe! The leftovers are just as yummy. I have even made this for a large crowd and served with Mexican Pinto Beans, Texmati Rice and Pico de Gallo. You're just gonna love it!

This recipe came from my dear Baylor friend - Lya! Lya is a great cook - I am always curious to know what Lya is cooking!



SPICY FLANK STEAK

¼ cup olive oil
¼ cup minced cilantro
4 garlic cloves, minced
2 tsp. salt
2 tsp. ground cumin
1 tsp. ground coriander
1 tsp. cayenne pepper
1 tsp. ground pepper
1 ½ lb flank steak

Mix marinade ingredients together and spread over both sides of steak. Marinate at room temperature for at least 30 minutes ( up to 2 hours). Grill approximately 5 minutes on each side. Slice diagonally across the grain and serve immediately.

** Ours took longer than 5 minutes on each side to get done – more like 10! Please don't overcook!
