Here's yet another Rachael Ray recipe! This one looked too good to pass up.
- 3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
- 1 tablespoon grill seasoning
- 1 teaspoon smoked paprika or 1 teaspoon ground dried chipotle powder or 1 teaspoon ground cumin
- 2 teaspoons hot sauce
- 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
- 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
- 1⁄3 cup extra virgin olive oil
- 2 lbs flank steaks
- 2 1⁄2 lbs small red skin new potatoes
- 1 leek, trimmed of tough tops
- 4 slices thick cut smoky bacon, cut into thick pieces
- 1 cup chicken broth or 1 cup chicken stock
- 1 vine ripe tomatoes, seeded and chopped
- 1 cup sour cream (to pass at table-optional)
- Mix garlic, steak seasoning, smoked paprika, chipotle or cumin, hot sauce, Worcestershire sauce, and vinegar. Whisk in extra virgin olive oil. Place meat in shallow dish and coat evenly to marinade. Let stand 15 minutes.
- Cut larger potatoes in half, leave very small potatoes whole. Place potatoes in a pot and cover with water. Bring to a boil and cook potatoes 12-15 minutes until tender.
- Heat a grill pan or outdoor grill to high heat.
- Cut leek in half lengthwise. Chop into 1/2" pieces. Place leeks in a big bowl of water and release all the dirt from them with a good wash, separating all the layers. Drain leeks in a colander.
- Grill flank steak 6-7 minutes on each side.
- Put a drizzle of EVOO into a hot nonstick skillet over medium high heat. Cook bacon 3-5 minutes until it begins to crisp and has rendered most of it's fat.
- Add leeks to the skillet and cook 3-5 minutes more until the leeks are tender.
- Drain potatoes and return them to the hot pot. Smash the potatoes with the chicken stock or broth.
- Add the bacon and leeks to the potatoes and continue to smash. Carefully fold in tomatoes. Season with salt and pepper to your taste.
- Remove flank steak from grill and let juices redistribute before slicing. Thinly slice meat on an angle, cutting the meat against the grain.
- Serve sliced flank steak next to BLT potatoes and top potatoes with a dollop of sour cream, if desired.
Made the whole meal, great flavored steak and rating based on steak alone. Mashed potatoes did not impress us the same way.
This meal is my twin daughters' favorite meal of all time so I was happy to find it here on zaar. The BLT smashed potatoes are awesome (I could make a meal of those alone). Really great marinade and very easy. But do add the potatoes as they really make the meal!
Sorry, Chef 520....I seem to have missed your comments/recommendations regarding this recipe.
