Ingredients

  • 1 pound flank steak
  • kosher salt to taste
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 1 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • 3 cloves garlic smashed
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper

Instructions

  • Prepare the marinade by whisking together olive oil, soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, red wine vinegar, garlic, and black pepper in a small bowl.
  • Place flank steak in a gallon-sized sealable plastic bag and pour in marinade. Seal the bag and place it in the refrigerator for 4 hours, flipping the bag over at least once to ensure even coverage.
  • After four hours remove the steak from the marinade and discard the leftover marinade.
  • Optional but recommended: Let the steak come to room temperature and season steak with kosher salt.
  • Set your broiler to high heat and place your oven rack to its highest setting.
  • Lay the steak on a boiling pan, or use a cooling rack placed on a rimmed baking sheet and place under the broiler so it is just a few inches below the element
  • Broil steak with the oven door propped open for approximately 12 minutes to reach 135 degrees, or medium-rare. Remove the steak from the oven 10 degrees below your ideal doneness, as the temperature will continue to rise as it rests.*
  • Let the meat rest on your cutting board for 10 minutes.
  • Slice flank steak against the grain and serve.

Notes

Tip: Place aluminum foil along the bottom of your broiling pan for easy cleanup.
Cooking time will vary depending on the thickness of your steak which is why I strongly recommend using a digital thermometer to monitor the temperature as it broils. 
Steak Temperature for Doneness:
Rare - 125 degrees
Medium Rare - 135 degrees
Medium - 145 degrees
Medium Well - 150 degrees
Well done - 160 degrees
