Flank steak with gravy

Flank steak is a lean and tough cut of beef with the most beef flavor for your money. Prepared and served the right way, this steak is as tender as you would like it.
I made a thick gravy to go along with it to make it a real winter dish for those cold and dark months.

  • Trim the flank steak. This is a lean cut of beef so there is not much fat to trim but you have to get rid of the silverskin.
  • Fire up the grill and wait till the grates are piping hot. Grill the flank steak on both sides while you keep flipping till it reaches a core temperature of 52°C/125°F.
  • Let the meat rest for 10 minutes. Then season it with some coarse salt.
    fleur de sel
  • Cut the flank steak in thick slices with the grain. Then cut it in bite-sized chunks against the grain. Serve with the gravy.
