Being on the go and great steak dinners don’t seem to go together. However, thanks to the superior flavor, versatility, and easy preparation of Good Silver Steak Co’s American Wagyu Flank Steaks, you can treat yourself to the best even in a time crunch. This lean abdominal cut has some of the boldest flavors to savor and can be used for anything from shockingly tender fajitas to better-than-takeout Mongolian beef.
Like inside and outside skirt steaks, the robust beef flavor of flank makes it ideal for bold marinades, seasonings, and sauces. To make the most of this meaty cut, cook it over high heat for a wonderfully charred crust and a delightful medium-rare center. Whether you marinade or not, one of the keys to keeping your American Wagyu Flank Steak tender is always to slice it thin and across the grain.
Whether you choose to marinade your Good Silver American Wagyu Flank Steak is entirely up to you. However, be sure to take your flank out of the refrigerator for at least 45 minutes to let it come to room temperature before cooking. Pat dry any moisture or excess marinade and season with your favorite spices, salt, and pepper. Prepare your grill for a quick sear over direct high heat.
- Place your wagyu flank steak on the grill and sear for three to five minutes per side until each has developed a deep caramelized brown crust.
- Once the steak reaches an internal temperature of 135 degrees Fahrenheit, take it off the grill and let rest for five to 10 minutes.
- Thinly slice against the grain and serve.
Because American Wagyu Flank Steaks are so versatile, the best sides to accompany your steak depends on the marinades, seasonings, and sauces you choose. Grilled vegetables, roasted new potatoes, wild rice, and salads make great sides. If using a marinade or robust rub, look for sides that complement the flavors you choose.
Chianti, garnacha, malbec, and cabernet franc pair perfectly with this lean but flavor-packed cut. The light roasted notes of brown ales should be the go-to drink of choice for beer lovers. The peppery bite of rye whiskey or caramel notes of bourbon stand up to flank steak. A tequila neat or spiced margarita are fine choices for Mexican-inspired dishes. Now, all that’s left to do is sip, slice, and savor.
