Barbecued Flank Steak-Under 20 Minutes
January 16, 2009
I developed this recipe for the most recent January/February 2009 issue of Cooking Light magazine. I love using flank steak because it’s not too expensive, a great family meal and it’s very versatile. Living in Birmingham, Alabama, I am lucky to have so many great local barbecue sauces to choose from, but whichever brand you choose, this recipe will come out great. It’s so simple, with just 7 ingredients, and it can be done in less than 20 minutes. Serve with your favorite sides for a delicious weeknight or weekend meal.
Barbecued Flank Steak
Prep: 5 minutes
Cook: 12 minutes
Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 3 ounces steak and 1/4 cup sauce)
1 cup barbecue sauce
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon prepared mustard
1 1/2 teaspoons celery seeds
1/4 teaspoon hot sauce
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 (1-pound) flank steak, trimmed
1. Preheat broiler.
2. Combine first 6 ingredients in a large bowl; add steak, turning to coat. Remove steak from sauce, reserving sauce mixture. Place steak on a broiler pan coated with cooking spray; broil 6 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness. Let stand 5 minutes. Cut steak diagonally across grain into thin slices.
3. While steak stands, bring sauce mixture to a boil in a saucepan over high heat. Reduce heat, and cook 5 minutes. Serve with steak.
