Italian Flank Steak

"From "The Busy Family Cookbook." Can't wait to try this. I love flank steak (usually labeled London Broil) because it is lean and cooks super quick. This marinade sounds great. (Prep time does not include marinating time....)"

Ready In:
1 flank steak


  • 2 (2/3 ounce) envelopes fat-free Italian salad dressing mix
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 (1 lb) beef flank steak


  • In a small bowl, combine the salad dressing mix, oil and lemon juice. Brush onto both sides of the steak, place in shallow dish. Cover and marinate overnight.
  • Preheat your grill or oven, whatever you prefer. Grill or broil to desired doneness.
  • 145 medium rare, 160 medium, 170 well done.
  • Personal note: this cut of meat is tough, so you MUST slice it thinly, across the grain. Also, it really is best cooked to no more than medium rare. My personal preference is just under med rare.

  1. This was just plain good! The whole family loved it, even the little ones. I served it with oven roasted potatoes and broccoli, I had clean plates all around. My husband and I also think this would be fantastic on a salad.


I am a mom to 2 boys, ages 11 and 6. My youngest is a cancer survivor, so we enjoy each day given to us! You never know what can happen in your life! I have been in the loan business for over 10 years and I love it. Unfortunately, this economy has put a wrench into my awesome career. After a couple layoffs, I decided I need to do something else for awhile. I am now selling advertising, and it's different! I am thankful to have a job, so can't complain much! I love to cook. I can spend a whole Sunday in the kitchen just cooking away. I love trying new recipes (my boyfriend hates it. Lol. He likes what he likes and would be fine never trying anything new.) I never bake. I think it's because I don't measure. I am a throw-in-the-ingredients until they taste good kind of girl. I LOVE this site(actually, I am addicted to it) and am enjoying finding new things to make everyday!
