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!
Honey Chipotle Lime Flank Steak
You will need:
1 1/2- 2 1/2 pound flank steak
2 tsp cumin
2 tsp chili powder
2 tsp chipotle chili powder
2 TB steak seasoning
juice from 1 lime
2 TB honey
2 TB olive oil
Combine rub spices in bowl. Using large baking dish rub steak with spices, make sure to cover all parts of steak. Combine marinade in another bowl. Pour marinade over steak, turn steak a few times to cover. Cover with plastic wrap, place in refrigerator for 12-24 hours.
When ready to cook, heat grill to medium heat. Cook for appx 7-9 minutes on each side, depending on size and thickness of steak. Once cooked to your liking, let steak rest for about 5 minutes. Slice thinly against the grain and serve. Use your leftovers for wraps or quesadillas!
What a dish! This looks like a hearty, stick to your ribs kind of dinner! Very nice.
We love flank steak and are always looking for new recipes! Looks great. Thanks for sharing 🙂
I’m not much of a huge steak person, but I could definitely love this! Anything with honey chipotle lime added has gotta be good. My husband will be thanking you in a few days 🙂
What is it with men and steak? 😀
This looks gorgeaous I would love to eat this too.
That looks so tasty! I love steak.
That sounds great! Like you I am not hugely into steak either, but one of the only ways I like it is the way you prepared it!
My hubby is a steak guy also. This looks great!
The flavors sound fantastic and I have never tried this with beef before, so maybe this weekend I will give it a go. We are opposite in our house: I love beef and my husband can live without. Which means, I can legally eat his portion as well 😉
Nice..I love Flank Steak…like you say it is EASY!
Oh and if you have been eyeing the Lemon Yogurt cake..you should whip it up..prep time is about 5 minutes!!
You’re speaking my language! Flank steak is one of my favorites cuts because it is economical and tasty. I usually get a big piece so that I can make a steak salad with the leftovers. This marinade sounds great; sweet and tangy!
Ooooh, I like how you used both a rub and a marinade! Both my hubby and son are meat and potatoes men. I bet they would love this. I’ve got my eye on those peppers you grilled. YUM!
I would not have thought to add honey to a flank steak like this but it sounds really good.
What a great summer recipe! Thanks for sharing.
that looks like a great steak! my hubby would scarf that up in seconds!
That looks perfectly cooked and so mouth watering. Yum!
What a great rub and marinade. We love flank steak and I am always looking for new ideas. Thanks!
