Oh, how we love to cook flank steak at Nugget Markets! Youll find it in our Delis full-service cases, but youll also find recipes on our website for cooking it at home, such as the one featured here.
There are some tricks to serving a perfect flank. Avoid cooking it past medium doneness; ideally you should serve it medium-rare. Flank is very lean and is made up of striated muscle (long parallel fibers), which can factor into it becoming easily overcooked. If your marinade is acidic (with components such as lemon juice or vinegars), avoid marinating too long; a good rule of thumb is a minimum of 30 minutes up to 2 hours. Resting the meat in acidic marinades overnight can cause it to toughen. And finally, when serving always slice it across the grain of muscle.
