Whenever I ask my husband what he wants for dinner, he will almost always say steak. He loves steak. I’m not that big of a steak lover – don’t get me wrong, I will indulge in a filet at a restaurant every now and then, but it’s not usually my first choice. I bought my first flank steak not long ago and just love it. This is my kind of steak. I love that it’s lean and easy to cook. You just throw it in some marinade the night before, throw it on the grill when you are ready, slice thin and enjoy!
I was craving something smokey and sweet…so I threw together this rub and marinade the other night. Served the steak with some roasted cubanelle peppers and some of Prudy’s Cowboy Beans…husband was a happy man!
