Grilled Flank Steak with Horseradish Sauce Recipe
Yields: 4 servings
Prep time: 10 min
Cook time: 10 min
1 pound beef flank steak*
3 tablespoons fresh-squeezed
2 tablespoons Dijon-style mustard
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1/8 teaspoon hot pepper sauce or to taste
Horseradish Sauce (see recipe below)
Using a sharp knife, score the surface of the flank steak
wit shallow diagonal cuts at 1-inch intervals, making diamond shapes. Repeat on other side of steak.
In a large resealable plastic bag, combine lemon juice,
mustard, Worcestershire sauce, garlic, and hot pepper sauce. Add prepared flank steak.
Seal bag and turn to coat. Refrigerate at least 8 hours or overnight, turning steaks occasionally.
Barbecue grill. Remove steak from marinade; discard
marinade. Place steak onto hot grill. Cover barbecue with lid, open any vents and grill
until steak is medium rare or until the internal temperature reaches desired temperature
meat thermometer (see below). NOTE: This steak is best cooked rare to medium rare.
What constitutes rare and medium-rare cooked meat? To satisfy government home economists, the Beef
Council says rare beef means an internal temperature of 140 degrees F. Well, that is ok if you like well-done and dry meat. If you like moist, rosy meat (like I do),
rare begins at 120 degrees and starts to become medium rare at 125 or 130 degrees. To cook your meat properly, you must purchase and use a good instant-read digital
is the type of cooking and meat thermometer that I prefer and use in my cooking. I get many readers
asking what cooking/meat thermometer that I prefer and use in my cooking and baking. I, personally, use the
Thermapen Thermometer shown in the photo on the right. Originally designed for professional users, the
Super-Fast Thermapen Thermometer is used by chefs all over the world. To learn more about this excellent
thermometer and to also purchase one (if you desire), just click on the underlined:
Residual Heat or Carry-Over Cooking: Remember, the steak will continue to cook as it sets. The
temperature will rise to 125 degrees F. to 130 degrees F. internal temperature (medium rare) at 15 to 20 minutes. So, pay attention to how long you let the cooked
steak sit before serving.
Remove from heat and let steak rest 5 minutes before
slicing. With a sharp knife, slice steak thinly against (diagonal) the grain. Place on a
platter or individual dinner plates and serve with Horseradish Sauce.
