Fathers Day BBQ: Beef Flank Steak
Beef Flank Steak Ingredients:
1 beef flank steak (trimmed; nearly 1-1/2 pounds)
White sugar (1 tablespoon)
Molasses (1/4 cup)
White vinegar (1/3 cup)
Ketchup (1/2 cup)
Strong beer (1 cup)
Allspice (ground; 1/4 teaspoon)
Cinnamon (ground; 1/4 teaspoon)
Cumin (ground; ¼ teaspoon)
Black pepper (ground; 2 teaspoons)
Cayenne pepper (ground; ¼ teaspoon)
Salt (1 teaspoon)
Ground black pepper and salt (to taste)
- Take a bowl and mix white vinegar, molasses, and ketchup together. Add in allspice, cumin, cinnamon, cayenne pepper, 2 teaspoons black pepper, white sugar, and 1-teaspoon salt. Whisk until the mixture becomes smooth. Pour in beer. The beerbecue sauce is ready and keep it aside.
- Take a non-reactive container and put the beef flank steak into it. Take two forks and poke as many holes as you can in the both sides of the steak. Pour the beerbecue sauce over meat. Use a plastic wrap to cover the container and marinate for 8 to 12 hours.
- After removing the meat from marinade, dry it with paper towels. Take a frying pan and pour the leftover marinade into it. Heat the pan over medium heat and bring the marinade to a boil. Now, reduce the heat and simmer the marinade for at least five minutes. A basting sauce is ready!
- Lightly oil the grate of an outdoor grill and preheat it at high heat. Now, season the steak with black pepper and salt.
- Grill the steak for 2 and half minutes. If you want to make diamond-shaped grill marks on the steak, turn it around on grate to a 45-degree angle. Now, grill for another 2 and half minutes. Repeat the same for the other side.
- Flip the steak on the grill to original side and brush with sauce. Grill for 30 seconds or until the sauce is glazed onto the steak. Turn over the steak, brush the other side with sauce, and grill for 30 seconds. Now, repeat the process for the both sides one more time.
Take the steak out of the grill if an instant-read thermometer reads 125°F if inserted into the thickest part of the steak.
- Take the steak on a platter and let it cool for 5 to 10 minutes. Now, slice the steak lengthwise down the center. Cut slices about 3/8-inch thick from each half across the grain.
- Drizzle the slices with sauce and serve!
