Hope everyone had a great Fathers Day! For us it was the weekend of steak. My wife and I went out to dinner Friday night, one of the last times we'll have without a newborn for awhile, and we had a great steak there. I had the leftovers from that Saturday for lunch and then I grilled this amazing flank steak for the family Saturday night.
This week the Virtual Potluck group is sharing recipes from Top Chef's Fabio Viviani made with Bertolli Oilve Oil. They've got a great sweepstakes going on right now where you can win some great prizes and even a trip to L.A.!
The other potluckers made some more of Fabio's recipes too so check them all out here!
Typically when I do a flank steak, I marinate it before throwing it on the grill. This recipe called for just brushing it with the olive oil before grilling and it cooked up just great. Five minutes on each side is plenty of time for your typical flank steak and results in a great juicy steak. Don't get too excited about the steak though and forget to let it rest for 10 minutes after the grill! The simple grilling method also really allowed the flavors of the salsa to shine. The salsa was a combination of fresh pineapple, red pepper,green onions, basil and some jalapeno for heat. Such a great combination of flavors. Make it ahead of time and will be even spicier!
