Cilantro Lime Flank Steak

December 7, 2016



Happy Wednesday babes! Today I wanted to do a quick post on this delicious flank steak. Honestly, until this recipe, I had hardly eaten any red meat for about 8 years. Partly for health reasons, but also because I don’t really care for it. Until now. This steak is a lean cut, but cooked this way, it is still so tender and juicy (such an awkward word, but had to do it). Even Andrew, who is about the last person I could picture being a carnivore, was a fan. I love this marinade because it provides a ton of flavor and is super versatile. You can use this on tacos, salads, or by itself paired with veggies or sweet potato fries. It’s so good and SO simple. Even Andrew, who prides himself on making a mean bowl of cereal could get this done. Let me know what you think!
