Broiled Flank Steak with Turkish/Mediterranean Marinade




The marinade used for marinating the flank steak is Turkish/Mediterranean style. My uncle who loves grilling uses this type of dressing. You may broil or grill this steak.

1 lb flank steak
¼ cup lemon juice
1 tbsp fresh rosemary (chopped finely)
1-2 tsp coarse sea salt
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp black pepper


Rub the steak with sea salt and black pepper. Add the fresh rosemary, olive oil and lemon juice to the steak making sure the ingredients are distributed well all over the steak. Marinate over night in the refrigerator. Broil or grill for 10-12 minutes on each side. Depending on how you prefer your meat cooked, you may adjust the cooking time. It will cook well done based on this recipe. Slice against the grain and serve with potatoes or pilaf.
