Grilled Flank Steak with Garlic-Parsley Sauce

With the spring weather upon us, my cooking heads outdoors to the grill. Flank steak is a relatively inexpensive steak that handles marinades and rubs incredibly well, but who has time to marinate for hours? Here's a recipe from Cook's Country that skips the marinating but still packs a lot of flavor.

Grilled Flank Steak with Garlic-Parsley Sauce

1/2 cup minced fresh parsley leaves
1/4 cup minced red onion
2 medium cloves garlic, minced
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1/8 tsp. hot red pepper flakes
Table salt and ground black pepper
1 1/2 pounds flank steak

Combine parsley, onion, garlic, vinegar, oil, pepper flakes, and salt and pepper to taste in small bowl. Season steak with salt and pepper to taste.

Grill steak over very hot fire until browned on both sides and slightly less done than you want, about 10 minutes.

Place steak in baking dish and coat with parsley sauce. Cover dish with foil and let rest for 5 minutes. Slice steak thinly against grain and serve with sauce remaining in baking dish.

The basic flavor of this marinade is one my dad took to his grave with him. When I mixed up the ingredients I thought it was a very familiar smell. But... when I BBQ'd the meat and followed the directions out... OHHH MY... SOOO VERY VERY GOOD! I was out of parsley so I used freeze dried Cilantro. I used onion powder, and McCormick Steakhouse Seasoning in place of the pepper. WE WERE FLOORED at how good it is! Thank you thank you! Neener neeeeener sweet daddy! I finally got it...LOL YUMMMMOOOOOO!
