Easy Grilled Marinated Flank Steak and More!

1. Grilled Marinated Flank Steak

There’s no doubt in my mind that the simple blend of soy sauce, honey, and garlic creates the most sensational marinade. 

It’s salty and deeply flavorful with a beautiful sweet-savory finish.

Pair this tasty sauce with a lean cut of flank steak, and it’ll soak up that deliciousness like a sponge.

Make this once, and you’ll be hooked.

2. Grilled Balsamic-Garlic Steak

Balsamic is the next best thing if you don’t go with a soy-honey-garlic blend.

And any recipe that pairs steak with balsamic is a win in my book. It’s got an even deeper flavor that’s enhanced by the richness of the meat.

You’ll love how perfectly this dish compliments summer nights.

There’s something about the sweet, charred flavor that will have you dreaming about dusky balmy evenings.

3. Grilled Asian-style Soy Marinated Flank Steak

After just one taste of this sweet and salty marinade, you’ll have a hard time sharing.

It’s guaranteed to leave you feeling warm, cozy, and satisfied.

You’ll love how this hearty dish transforms your dinner party into a wholesome, heartwarming gathering.

5. Authentic Carne Asada

Carne asada is one of my favorite ways to prepare flank steak.

The thin slices of meat pick up the citrusy, spicy flavors so perfectly, leaving you with something truly spectacular.

You’ll use lime and orange juices, garlic, cilantro, oil, jalapeños, and vinegar for maximum Tex-Mex goodness.

Better yet, this recipe provides the easiest way to create the best carne asada. Use it in tacos, sandwiches, salads – you name it!

6. Flank Steak Fajitas

If you need a weeknight, time-saving dinner, then this recipe is for you.

You’ll love how fast these flank steak fajitas come together. In just 20 minutes, you can have a wholesome, healthy dinner on the table.

The tender flank steak mixes perfectly with the sautéed veggies and soft tortillas.

Make a big batch, and it’s even good for lunch the next day.

7. Gorgonzola Portobello Steak Skillet

Can you think of a better combination than portobello mushrooms and steak?

With their rich, meaty flavors, the two seem like they’re destined to be together.

Combined with a creamy, mouth-watering sauce, this is one dish that’s hard to beat.

You’ll love how every bite melts on your tongue.

And did I mention it’s keto and takes just one skillet to prepare? That’s right! Like I said: it’s tough to beat.

8. Ropa Vieja

How sensational does this recipe look? 

This masterpiece of a dish combines tender flank steak with colorful veggies, briny olives, and zingy capers. 

You’ll simmer this delicious medley for 3 hours in order to pull out an immensity of flavor.

Every bite will blow you away, so be sure to make extra.

9. Panda Express Beijing Beef

Next time you’re craving takeout, why not save a few pennies and take this recipe for a spin instead?

Not only will it save you money, but you can customize the spice and oil levels to fit your palate.

Whether you go for something spicy or mild, each sensational bite of crispy beef will rock your palate.

10. Broiled Flank Steak

This simple, flavorful recipe comes together in just 30 minutes.

And all you have to do is rub some olive oil and spices on the flank steak, then broil it to medium-rare.

How easy is that?

The savory, spiced flavors are just enough to complement the rich beef.

Serve it with some crispy potatoes or healthy brown rice, and watch your family gobble it up.

11. Bistec Encebollado (Steak & Onions)

This restaurant-worthy Spanish dish is about to become part of your regular dinner rotation. 

What could be better than perfectly seasoned steak with the savory bite of onions?

Together, it’s a match made in heaven.

12. Mongolian Beef

Just looking at this Mongolian beef makes my mouth water.

And while the steak is incredibly yummy, the best part of this recipe is the tangy, red chili glaze.

Crispy on the outside, chewy on the inside, and packed full of sensational flavors, you’ll crave this dish again and again.

13. Beef Stroganoff

I have a weakness for beef stroganoff. That combination of juicy mushrooms, savory brown gravy, and tender pasta really does it for me.

If you share this sentiment, then you’ll fall in love with this recipe at first bite.

You only need 30 minutes to whip this up, making it ideal for a last-minute weeknight meal.

14. Korean Beef Tacos (Bulgogi)

This recipe proves why fusion foods are so dang delicious.

If you love tacos (who doesn’t?), you’ll go gaga for this recipe.

Instead of carne asada, you’ll use Korean BBQ flank steak to add a sweet, spicy flavor to your next taco Tuesday. 

Combined with a Sriracha-lime crema drizzled on top, this will go down as one unforgettable dish.

15. Grilled Sesame Ginger Steak Skewers

Meat on a skewer is always a hit. Be it a BBQ or cocktail party, it’s one of the things that always disappear first.

And these additive grilled flank steak skewers are no exception.

Melt-in-your-mouth meat with tantalizing tastes of ginger, soy sauce, and sesame oil it’s too good to miss.

So, the next time you’re hosting a summer cookout, keep this recipe in mind. It makes a terrific BBQ appetizer!

16. Smoked Teriyaki Beef Jerky Sticks

Jerky gets a bad rap, when in reality, it’s tasty, loaded with protein, and often pretty natural (i.e., free from a bunch of chemicals).

That’s especially true when you make it yourself.

This tasty jerky beats anything store-bought by a country mile and is actually super easy to make as long as you have a smoker.

Of course, you can use a dehydrator too. And to get that smokey flavor, try adding a little liquid smoke.

17. Mushroom Cheese Stuffed Flank Steak

Each one of these pinwheels features a mouthful of savory flavor.

Between the caramelized onions, sautéed mushrooms, and melted cheese, this steak wrap is the stuff of dreams.

This show-stopping recipe works as an entree or even a meaty appetizer.

18. Mustard Marinated Flank Steak + Arugula Salad

You can’t beat steak salad. I love how wonderfully the rich beef mixes with the lightness of leafy greens.

This recipe offers a rendition you’ll obsess over. It’s overflowing with marinated flank steak, juicy tomatoes, and peppery arugula.

Finish it off with a lemony, bright dressing that ties everything together, and this will quickly become your go-to summer salad.

19. Grilled Flank Steak With Tomato Olive Relish

“Tomato Olive Relish With a Side of Flank Steak” is a more appropriate name for this dish. That’s because the tasty relish is the real star of the show.

The combination of olives, tomatoes, garlic, and vinegar creates a divine, flavor-packed dressing that blends beautifully with the juicy flank steak. 

That said, it’s so good, you’ll want it on everything. Luckily, it pairs well with everything from fish and chicken to pork and lamb.

This bold dish will certainly make a statement at your next summer dinner party.

20. Lemon Garlic Butter Flank Steak with Mushrooms

How can you go wrong with lemon, garlic, and butter? These ingredients are considered the trifecta of perfection in my book.

Add some tender flank steak, and you’ve got yourself a delectable dish full of bright zingy flavors. 

21. Steak Salad

Steak is typically a pretty heavy dish. After all, we almost always order it with potatoes!

But if you want something a little lighter, try this scrummy steak salad.

Serve it as a satisfying lunch or a nice light dinner on the patio. Either way, it’s lightning-fast to prep.

22. Jamaican Pepper Steak

In just 30 minutes, you can prepare this fantastic Jamaican pepper steak.

It’s crazy easy to cook, and the results will delight your palate in the best way possible.

Between the spicy peppers, citrusy herbs, and savory ginger, you might have to fight for seconds.
