Hey all! How are things where you are? I’m always so curious where everyone is from, and what your weather is like, and what you’re up to…are you ready for Easter? Or are you celebrating Passover?
Things here in my neck of the woods are starting to thaw. I think I even heard a robin yesterday, and believe you me, when you hear that bird it can take the worst of moods and turn them right around. That bird is the symbol of better things to come. It means a sloooooow, but inevitable goodbye to winter. It means we’re close folks, we’re close. 😉 But for now, we’re getting ready for Easter and pretending that we can wear capri pants and sandals. And we’re BBQing because we can.
And speaking of Easter, why on earth am I posting a non-Easter recipe? I have no business posting a non seasonal recipe. I mean, who does that right now? Um me. I just can’t help myself. And don’t even get me started…two BBQ recipes back to back? What the? But I’m dreaming of summer and BBQing makes me feel that much closer to my favourite season! So back to the BBQ I go.
Today I bring to you Horseradish Flank Steak Marinade. This recipe…oh my this recipe. If you love horseradish and beef, this marinade is the best. The best.
- 1 - 1 1/2 lb flank steak
- 1/3 cup olive oil
- 2 – 4 tbsp horseradish
- 1 tbsp dijon mustard
- 1 tsp rosemary
- salt & fresh ground pepper
- In a bowl combine all the ingredients for the marinade (everything except the meat). Set aside.
- Using a fork, pierce the flank steak all over, front and back. Then put it into a large ziplock bag.
- Add the marinade to the bag, then seal the bag. Turn the steak around inside the bag making sure the steak is well coated with the marinade.
- Let the steak sit in the marinade for at least 2 hours. We like it even better when it is marinated overnight.
- When you are ready to cook it, preheat your BBQ to high heat.
- Brush the grill with a little bit of oil, then add your steak, sear it on both sides, then turn down the heat to medium, and cook each side about 7 minutes, or longer if you prefer it more well done.
- Remove the steak from the BBQ and let it rest about 5 minutes before you slice it up and serve it. When slicing flank steak, make sure to cut against the grain of the meat.
I served this steak with Caesar Salad, and over little French Onion Toasts, and dinner was fan-freakin-tastic! It makes a great meal for entertaining too!
