Argentine Grilled Flank Steak

"My daughter brought this recipe back from her honeymoon in Argentina. It is very simple....the longest part is just marinating. (8 hours). This is not included in prep time as it is inactive prep time. Any leftovers are great on a sandwich or on a salad!"

Ready In:




  • Score the steak 1/4 inch deep on both sides; rub the black pepper on both sides of the steak, amount depending on your tolerance for black pepper! Place in a large shallow dish or a thick ziplock plastic bag. Combine olive oil and the remaining ingredients in a small bowl; stir well.
  • Pour the marinade mixture over the steak; cover and marinate in the refrigerator for 8 hours.
  • Remove the steak from marinade, discarding the marinade.
  • Grill, covered, over medium-hot coals (350 to 400 degrees) for 4 minutes on each side or to desired degree of doneness.
  • Let rest for 5 minutes, covered. To serve, slice the steak diagonally across the grain into thin slices. Enjoy!

    This was so good! The weather is starting to get warm and allow us outdoors, so it was nice to have an opportunity grill the beef. The marinade adds a nice flavor base to the beef. I served it with steamed peas and Jasmine rice. Thanks, breezermom!

    My mom used to make flank steak but I had never tried it. I ended up marinating it for a couple of days because the grill ended up under a bunch of snow. This time I made it inside in the oven and it was good. Expect it will be even better when I try it on the grill this summer.

    Straight into my Best of 2018 file this goes! This steak is so flavorful and tender! The directions are perfect and yielded a beautiful medium rare steak. My husband took one bite and exclaimed how delicious it was. Then a few bites later he said it again. It's so easy to prepare and cook, too! A winner for sure. Thank you.
