Balsamic-Marinated Flank Steak Recipe

Balsamic-Marinated Flank Steak

Serves 6

Prepare the steak and marinade and bring to your next cookout or tailgate party. Make an extra batch and keep it in the freezer. Just thaw in the fridge before the next time you fire up your grill.


  • 1 1/2 pounds beef flank steak
  • Kosher salt, to taste
  • Pepper, to taste
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil or 1 teaspoon dry
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon granulated sugar


  1. Combine marinade ingredients in food-safe plastic bag. Seal bag and squish contents to combine. Place steak in bag with marinade; turn to coat. Close bag securely and marinate in refrigerator 6 hours or up to overnight, turning occasionally.
  2. When ready to cook, remove steak from bag and discard marinade. Preheat grill.
  3. Place steak on grill over medium heat. Grill, covered, 6 to 8 minutes per side for medium rare to medium doneness (135-150°F). Remove steak, tent with foil, and allow to rest 10 minutes.
  4. To serve, cut thin slices crosswise, against the grain. Season with additional salt and pepper, as desired.
