The Profile 

Flank Steak

Flank Steak also referred to as Plank Steak or Jiffy Steak, is a cut taken from the loin area of the cow where the abdominal muscles are located. It may be cooked in a variety of ways such as by pan-searing, grilling & broiling as these methods will have it ready quite quickly. This delicious beef cut is known for being lean & boneless making it ideal to serve in sandwiches when sliced thinly. Flank Steak may be marinated with robust flavors or rubbed with classic spices such as chili powder, cumin, garlic & brown sugar for an irresistible taste. It’s a good meal solution in stir frys containing a variety of vegetables, too. Flank Steak pairs beautifully with a wide range of side dishes from simple Traditional Oven Baked Potatoes or Sour Cream Mashed Potatoes to Lemon-Dill Pasta With Shallots & Parmesan or Lemon-Butter Asparagus With Quinoa. Learn how to cook Flank Steak in your very own kitchen.

How To Cook Flank Steak

Flank Steak is a mid-level priced beef cut that may be enjoyed alone or featured in recipes including sandwiches, salads & authentic Mexican specialties. It’s wonderful with a Cheddar-Parmesan Twice Baked Potato & a Buttermilk-Blue Cheese Wedge Salad or when featured in Grilled Steak Fajitas. When choosing a steak, look for balanced marbling & an even thickness of the cut so it cooks consistently. Well sharpened knives should also be considered when preparing & serving steaks. Look to The Basics: How To Sharpen Knives for valuable information regarding the topic.

Two key criteria should be followed when cooking any beef steak. First & foremost, you want the steak to cook evenly. Always remove Flank Steak from the refrigerator at least 30 minutes before you plan to sear, grill or broil it. The steak may be seasoned at this time if a marinade was not used. The desired degree of doneness must also be decided upon. Flank Steak is a relatively thin cut so approximately 2 minutes of cooking on each side with a 1/3-inch thickness will generally produce a medium-rare result.
