Southwestern Flank Steak
makes 6 to 8 servings

The Basic Fundamentals

Allow the beef to stand at room temperature for 20 minutes before grilling for the most accurate interior cook time.

2 Tbsp chili powder
1 Tbsp dark brown sugar
1 1/2 tsp cumin
1 1/2 tsp kosher salt
1/2 tsp crushed red pepper
2 garlic cloves, pressed
3 Tbsp olive oil
1/2 of a small Vidalia onion, minced
1 1/2 lbs flank steak
Lime wedges

Combine the first 7 ingredients in a small bowl. Stir in the minced onions to form a paste. The mixture will be very thick. Coat both sides of the flank steak with the seasoning. Cover & refrigerate 1 to 24 hours.

Preheat the grill to Medium-High {350 to 400 degrees}. Let the steak stand 20 minutes at room temperature. Grill the steak 3 to 4 minutes per side. Remove the steak from the grill & let stand 10 minutes before slicing. Serve with lime wedges.

The Extra Point

Make a batch of Grilled Steak Fajitas for a company worthy meal.

The temperature of the beef & the grilling temperature are important factors in achieving a quality meal. A hot grill is key but you’ll also want to take the chill off of the beef for a better gage of the internal temperature you desire. Let the beef stand at least 20 minutes at room temperature before adding to the preheated grill. Here are the other points to consider.

When adding seasonings to cuts of meat, it’s important to allow ample time for the blend to permeate so the full flavors shine once cooked. Follow individual recipe instructions for the best results.

Anywhere from 3 to 4 minutes per side will deliver a juicy & tender steak averaging about a 3/4-inch thickness. Only turn the steak once & it will be ready for a flip once it releases without sticking. Invest in a pair of long handled tongs. You’ll use them time & time again.
