Simple Citrus Flank Steak

From Carrie Morey's Hot Little Suppers cookbook

Simple Citrus Flank Steak

You'll Need:

  • • 1 ½ pound flank steak
  • • Juice of 2 clementine oranges
  • • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • • ¼ cup cilantro
  • • ¼ cup red onion, diced
  • • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • • 1 teaspoon Sriracha

For this dish, I took inspiration from a trip to Puerto Rico. This is a great recipe for those no-cook summer nights. It's a simple yet flavorful marinade and then a fast grill. Quick and easy! Often times, I pair this steak with my family's "South Fork" slaw and it is one of our favorites. This is perfect for the summer - you don't even need to turn on your oven!

How To:

  1. Mix together the flank steak, clementine juice, cilantro, garlic, red onion and Sriracha. Let marinate for at least 30 minutes.
  2. Heat oil in a large cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat.
  3. Sear steak in the skillet for 6 minutes per side for medium-rare. Cook longer if needed to reach the desired temperature.
  4. Serve over rice, lettuce, tortillas, or with my version of coleslaw - Slaw for Everything . Enjoy!
