Grilling has become a year round way to cook. Partly for the convenience and also because it has been discovered to be one of the healthiest ways to cook.
The flank steak is a relatively lean cut of meat with lots of flavor. The quickest and easiest way is to buy it pre-marinated. Grill it whole and allow it to rest before cutting. Slice it across the natural grain.
