Oven Roasted Flank Steak
This is one of my favorite ways to eat Flank Steak. Especially because it is very easy to cook and the flavor and juices of the meat come together so well. If you decide to give it a try, here is the recipe!
4 pounds of flank steak (room temperature)
Salt and fresh ground pepper
2 garlic cloves, minced
4 sprigs of fresh thyme
2 Tbspn. olive oil
1 Tbspn. balsamic vinegar (or a generous splash)
Preheat your oven to 400ºF. Grease the bottom a baking dish (wide enough to hold both pieces of meat without overlapping into each other). A baking cookie sheet would work too.
Season the meat with salt and pepper to taste on both sides. Rub the minced garlic and the fresh thyme all over the meat.
Place it on the pan/baking sheet and drizzle the olive oil and balsamic vinegar on top.
Bake for 30 to 35 minutes for medium rare. Take it out of the oven. Cover it with aluminum foil and let it rest for 10 minutes. Cut into pieces and serve.
