The Food Lab Turbo: Forget the Flank, Skirt Steak is the King of Stir Fries!

The Food Lab J. Kenji López-Alt 21 comments

Why is it that nearly all recipes for stir-fried beef call for flank steak? I've been following the advice for years, but have never been truly satisfied with the end results. Sure, flank steak is pretty meaty, absorbs marinades well, and can come out tender. But may I propose an alternative? Skip the flank and go for the skirt. More

The Green Chile Cheeseburger, made by topping a fat cumin- and chili-scented burger patty with roasted green chilies and cheese, is one of the finest burger creations known to man. Here we take those same flavors and roll them into a butterflied flank steak for an entrée pretty enough for an al fresco dinner party, with the same hearty flavors. More

The Food Lab: How to Make Grilled Stuffed Flank Steak Pinwheels

The Food Lab J. Kenji López-Alt 21 comments

Flank steak is one of those cuts of meat custom-built for the grill. When cooked right, it has a mild, beefy flavor and lean texture, with just the right amount of chew when you slice it thinly across the grain. Butterfly that flank steak and stuff it with flavor-packed ingredients like Italian cold cuts, cheeses, and punchy condiments, and you're really in business. A nice flank steak pinwheel is one of the fastest-cooking and most impressive-looking pieces of meat you can throw on the grill, the kind of thing to pull out when you want to impress the neighbors.

Pan-Seared Flank Steak with Shiitake Mushrooms and Pumpkin Seed Sauce

Serious Eats Nick Kindelsperger Post a comment

Whenever I'm looking for a side dish to pair with steak, my mind tends to gravitate toward mushrooms, since the two are such a fantastic pair. The only problem is a visual one: both are brown, making for a monochromatic dish. Steakhouses solve this problem by adding a completely unnecessary sprig of parsley; I decided to go all in and add as much green as possible, in the form of a lime-heavy pumpkin seed pesto. More

Marinated Flank Steak with Lemony Arugula and Feta Salad from 'Kitchen Garden Cookbook'

Cook the Book Kate Williams Post a comment

Jeanne Kelley's marinated and grilled flank steak with arugula salad comes from the "Spring" chapter in her new Kitchen Garden Cookbook. But with its clean flavors and almost effortless preparation, the dish lands squarely in the realm of summer cooking. What really makes this dish stand out is not the arugula—the real winner is Kelley's exotic, tangy sumac and lemon mixture, which performs double duty as marinade and salad dressing. More

Bruce Aidells' Spinach and Gorgonzola-Stuffed Flank Steak

Kate Williams 4 comments

For a big, rollicking holiday meal, a large beef or pork roast serves as an excellent centerpiece. But for those with a smaller holiday table, a more diminutive entree might be warranted. Bruce Aidell's Spinach and Gorgonzola-Stuffed Flank Steak from The Great Meat Cookbook is just the ticket. The stuffing is a snap to throw together but full of funky blue cheese and earthy spinach.
