The Simplest Flank Steak Recipe in History

What You’ll Need

  • One or more of our lean, tender thick Flank Steaks
  • Salt and Pepper


  • Before grilling, place the flank steak on the counter. Let it warm up to room temperature.
  • Salt and pepper liberally, both sides.
  • Using a grill brush, clean the grates.
  • Crank that grill up. If you can get it to 500 degrees or more, that's perfect.
  • Slap that flank steak on the grill and shut the cover.
  • For two minutes, find something else to do. Check your email. Pull a couple weeds.
  • Open the grill cover. The flank steak should release easily from the grates. If not, give it another 30 seconds.
  • Flip the steak over. Close the grill.
  • Let it cook for another minute, minute and a half.
  • Check with a grill thermometer. 135 degrees is what you're shooting for to medium rare. DON'T OVER COOK!!!!
  • Remove the flank steak and place it on a cutting board. Cover loosely with tin foil.
  • Let it rest for at least 10 minutes.
  • Salt and pepper to taste.
  • Slice on an angle, nice and thin. The end pieces will be more well done. The center will be pink to red.
  • Eat now. Or let it cool to room temperature and eat later.
