Broiled Southwestern Flank Steak

I love flank steak.  It is so easy to prepare and it takes no time whatsoever.  Well...if you don't include the time it takes to marinate.  The best part about this recipe is that you can marinate it for up to 48 hours.  I usually only marinate overnight, but you could do longer if you wish.

Everyone loves steak in my house.  My youngest eats A1 on it no matter what the flavor is, my oldest will inhale it however it is prepared, and my husband feels steak is ruined by any kind of steak sauce.  Me I just require it be medium-rare :)

I think this would be great sliced thin and placed in warm tortillas with some cheese.  My husband Cut his into cubes and put it in his salad.  Whatever you decide this is a wonderful marinade and the steak is cooked perfectly!

  • Place flank steak in a ziploc bag and add the marinade
