Grilled Flank Steak with Olive Vinaigrette
Flank Marinating Steak is lean and absorbs all the flavour you can give it. A quick grill makes it easy to enjoy. Simply marinate the steak the night before if you have time, but if not, a quick 15 minute marinade adds flavour to the meat. Piercing the meat all over before marinating maximizes tenderness.
