Marinated Flank Steak

Today was my first time making Flank Steaks. Yes I was scared it would be tough or to raw for Hubby to eat. But I rocked it. I took two flank steaks, one bottle of bruschetta Italian dressing, and 1/2 cup of oil. I placed the steaks in a tupper ware container and mixed the dressing and oil together. Poured it over the steaks and let it sit in the fridge over night. Turning them two or three times during their soak. I preheated my grill on medium. I placed them on the grill and let them sit for about 10 minuets each side. (5 to 7 is what I was told to cook them but hubby does not like red meat showing) I got medium to medium rare on the thickest one. The other was about medium all the way thru. I also grilled onions and bell peppers in a little oil to serve with them.

 Notice the outside color. It could have gone a little darker but I did not want to over cook them at all.
 Here is the inside of the medium one. When cutting a Flank steak cut it on a diagonal and not with the grain.
Here is hubby's lunch for tomorrow. One Steak Sandwich.

I am planning on making these again. Some other uses would be fajitas, salads, stir fry, tacos and steak with peppers and onions over rice.
