Beef Flank Steak

Synonyms: London Broil

Flank steaks are a long, thin cut from the Flank. They offer great flavor at a more affordable price than the top shelf steakhouse cuts. Because of their prominent muscle fibers, they are typically cooked no further than medium rare & served thinly sliced against the grain.

Flank steaks are an excellent marinating cut because of their bold flavor, looser structure that absorbs liquids better, and thin profile.

Applications: Grill, Sear, Broil, Roast, Sous Vide or Braise.
