Turn it about half way through the marinating process. Now, grill it to the temperature you like.

I cooked this until it was medium. Let it sit for about 10 minutes covered with foil. Then, cutting against the grain and at an angle, cut thin slices. Serve with the chimichurri and the sides you like and you’ll be back thanking me real soon!

    Pinning. You know, it seems like every time I click a recipe I like the look of (from a blog party or pinterest), it seems like it’s one of yours! We must have similar taste in food! 🙂 Advice needed though – I can not cook flank steak! It is always tough, even with marinade, slow cooking… etc. I want it to be good sooooo badly, but then it’s tough! HELP! Julia

      The best way to have tender flank is quick cooking! I grilled this to medium-rare to medium. Cut across the grain in thin slices and on an angle. It is SUPER tender!! OR slow cooking is another way. Cooking it in the oven like a roast on only around 250 degrees until a thermometer reads its around 200 degrees in the center, slice it again thinly, at an angle across the grain, although it will probably fall apart while cutting from being so tender!

    Wow Dana, this looks so delicious. I love cilantro lime anything I have to try this. I saw an episode of Good Eats once that said if you really want lime flavor in your marinade to use the lime zest. (I found you on Great Ideas Thursday)
