Cooking Flank Steak
Prep time

Total time
I learned this technique from Julie at The Little Kitchen.
  • Marinated Beef Flank Steak
  • Olive or vegetable oil
  • Grill pan
  1. Marinate the flank steak at room temperature for about half an hour before cooking. If necessary, cut the steak in half so that the pieces fit in your grill pan. Use your favorite marinade! I loved the marinade that Julie used and shared on The Little Kitchen. Scrumptious!
  2. Heat the grill pan on medium high for about 5 minutes.
  3. Drizzle the pan with a swig or two of olive or vegetable oil and rotate pan to spread the oil around.
  4. Add steak to the pan, sort of moving the steak around for a few seconds at the beginning to spread the oil evenly beneath the surface of the steak.
  5. Cook on each side for about 3 minutes. Then, cook on each side for 1 more minute per side.
  6. Remove from pan and let rest for 5 minutes before cutting. Cut steak into slices, against the grain, and serve!
