  • I'm marinating flank steak now - can I cook it on the stove top

    I'm marinating flank steak right now - can I just cook it on the stove top in a cast iron skillet a few minutes on each side? Some recipes say to finish it in the oven, some hint that you don't have to.

    I like my meat very rare, and have never made flank steak before.

    Thanks for any advice?

    I do like searing in cast iron and finishing in a 400-450 degree oven for a few minutes at best. Let rest and slice against the grain. Grilling is my favorite.

      PHaselow,

      Thanks for the input! I just cooked it for 5 minutes on each side in hot cast iron, then let it rest. That was what Martha Stewart suggested.

      It is a little tough, but I can handle tough to maintain the rareness of it. I can't stand over-cooked meat.

      Next time I might slice first, marinate and then sear. That might make it more tender.

      I'm relatively new to eating red meat on a regular basis, so I wanted to venture out a bit.
