Are you looking for the perfect treat to serve your Valentine tomorrow? Or are you looking for the perfect way to treat yourself while those other saps are out spending wads of cash on flowers and chocolates? Either way, this steak is for you. I took a small-ish flank steak, marinated it for a short time and grilled it quickly on very high heat. This means that I got a super crispy crust on the steak and it was nice and rare on the inside. I also did something that I don't normally do with a steak and I sliced it very thin to serve it. Mark and I both got our thinly sliced pieces instead of each getting in individual steak. Slicing the flank steak nice and thin, against the grain will ensure that every bite is very tender. Flank steak is less expensive than other cuts and will take to a good marinade, which makes it perfect for cooking it this way. I don't want to overpower a fancy cut of meat with a marinade, but the flank steak's flavor is complimented by the sweet and savory marinade here. I loved this meal and I hope you do too.
