Flank Steak

Take a look at that cross-grain—that’s the telltale characteristic of any flank steak (in addition to its crowd-pleasing taste).

The flank steak is a large, flat cut taken from the extremely flavorful flank primal. It’s whole and generally not divided into smaller portions.

Rich, meaty and quick cooking, this is your best bet for beefed-up buffets or large parties. We like to marinate it and grill it, then slice thinly against the grain for added tenderness.
