Now don’t drool all over yourself. You can make this beautiful barbecue too! Just follow this recipe:

Vegetable oil (for the grill)
1-3 pounds flank steak
Olive oil
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
Prep time: 20min
Cook time: 35min

1. If using a gas grill, preheat one side to high. Clean the grill with a grill brush. Oil the grill by holding a folded wad of paper towel with tongs, dipping it in vegetable oil, and brushing the oil (sparingly — it’s flammable) onto the grill grate.

2. Remove the steak from the marinade. Put it on direct heat until it develops a rich brown crust, about 3-5 minutes. (Exactly how long will depend on the temperature of your grill.) Turn the steak and brown it 3-5 minutes on the other side.

3. Check the internal temperature of the steak — you should take it off the grill when it reaches 135º F for medium-rare.

4. If it’s not done, move the it to the low-heat side and close the grill. Be sure to check the temperature early and often. When it’s done, take the steak off the grill and cover it loosely with aluminum foil for 5 minutes or so. Cut the steak into long slices at an angle, against the grain.

Cover up now. With Kess InHouse Aprons you are guaranteed not to get all of the sauce on your clothes but we can’t say the same for your hands and face.
