Flank steak is one of my favorite steaks to cook. It cooks tender and juicy with simple seasoning. Blackstone Recipes is one of my favorite ways to cook steak and the flank steak cooks in less than 10 minutes.

Whether you are making Blackstone Steak Fajitas or Blackstone Beef and Broccoli, I always use flank steak because of the way it tastes. This steak is best served in thin strips in tacos or with a side of vegetables.

What is Flank Steak?

Flank Steak is a delicious lean cut of meat that is tender and flavorful and is best served in fajitas, stir-fries, and on salads. It has a rich flavor with a chewy texture.

When cooking flank steak it is best to cook the steak to about medium to avoid it being to tough to eat. We love to grill it but it can be prepared in a cast-iron skillet, cooked on a flat top grill, or boil in the oven.

Feel free to use different types of dry rubs or marinades to make this steak your own.

Why This Recipe Works:

We love the intense flavor of the flank steak. This Blackstone Recipe is quick and easy which makes it the perfect weeknight meal. We love how easy it is to slice to use with a variety of recipes.

  • Rest Steak – After taking the steak off the griddle, make sure to allow it to rest before slicing. We recommend resting steak for about 10 minutes.

  • Room Temperature – Before cooking steaks on the griddle, make sure the steaks need to be at room temperature.
