Grilled Flank steak with homemade marinade

4 hr.
1500°F / 900°C
2 Min.

The Flank steak is located behind the rib cage, beneath the loin and in front of the rear legs. It’s a boneless and very thin piece of muscle and thus particularly well suited for marinating and quick searing on the O.F.B. The cut tastes best when cooked medium rare, otherwise it will become tough and flavorless. Otto chose a soy-lemon marinade because the sweet and sour taste compliments the rich, meaty flavor of the Flank steak.
