I first had this style of steak at my in-laws. Who knew that a less expensive steak cut could be so easy AND good?

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 lbs flank steaks (bottom round or london broil works well, too)
  • 2 tablespoons McCormick's Montreal Brand steak seasoning (or your favorite salt or spice blend)
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon vinegar (any flavor)


  1. Sprinkle Montreal seasoning evenly over both sides of steak. Using a regular dinner fork, stab the seasoning into the meat-this get the flavor all the way through, and helps tenderize the meat. Use more or less seasoning to your taste.
  2. Place steak in a large zip type bag with olive oil and vinegar and let rest for 15 minutes, up to an hour. Turn and massage the oil/vinegar mix around the steak occasionally during this time.
  3. Heat grill to medium hot, then remove steak from bag and place steak on grill. Cook for 5-8 minutes per side, depending on thickness and desired doneness of steak.
  4. Remove steak from grill and LET IT REST, covered, (resting keeps the steak's juice inside, instead of all over the cutting board!) for at least 15 minutes, then slice steak thinly across grain. Serve immediately.
  5. This goes great with pan fries, steamed veggies and a nice green salad.
