Ready to fire up the grill and grill that perfect Flank Steak?

Oak Barn Beef has a few secrets to grilling the perfect flank steak that you can’t miss. (remember they are many variables like the type of grill used and the heat it puts off)

*Steaks need to be thawed. We recommend doing this by taking steaks out of the freezer and into the refrigerator the night before, but if you forget or are a last-minute dinner planner (like we are), you can soak steaks in a hot water bath instead.

Flank Steak

Step 1) Turn the grill on medium heat and scrub both sides with a grill brush

Step 2) Salt and Pepper both sides of the flank steak and rub it in. You do not need to use a marinade with our beef because the 21-day dry aging process increases tenderness and we only sell beef that has a terrific tenderness gene score! (Yes, we DNA test each one to assure they will provide the best beef!)

Step 3) Add steaks to grill and wait 3 minutes before flipping them to the other side.

Step 4) Grill the flank steak for 4 minutes on each side until you get the desired temperature

Step 5) Check the temperature of the steaks:

•    Medium Rare: 135 Degrees

•    Medium: 140 Degrees

•    Medium/Well: 150 Degrees

We love our steaks medium rare/medium. If you like yours to be more done, you will probably have to flip one more time!

Step 6) Pair with some vegetables and wah-la!
