MARINATED GRILLED FLANK STEAK WITH HERB GORGONZOLA BUTTER — Tender marinated flank steak, grilled to perfection then topped with herb Gorgonzola butter.
We have definitely entered that phase of summer where it’s just way too hot to turn on the oven. But sometimes I’m in the mood for something other than the usual hamburgers, hot dogs and grilled chicken.
This Marinated Grilled Flank Steak with Herb Gorgonzola Butter is my go to recipe when I want to do something a bit fancier on the grill.
This is wonderful. One of my favorite steaks; so flavorful and the Gorgonzola butter is delicious!! ~ Catherine
Trust me though, when I say fancy, I don’t mean difficult. Just let your steak marinate all day and then throw it on the grill about 10 minutes before you’re ready to eat.
And the herb Gorgonzola butter is easy too! Just toss some fresh herbs into your food processor with butter and Gorgonzola cheese and you’ve got an amazing spread for your grilled steak (it’s pretty tasty on roasted potatoes too).
The steak tastes best and is most tender if you have time to marinate it overnight. Flank steak tends to be a little tough unless you give it a good, long marinade. So I definitely recommend at least 8 hours of marination if you have time.
This is also a great way to prepare flank steak to use in tacos or burritos, or in a hearty steak salad.
Just be sure to let your meat rest for at 5-10 minutes before slicing to seal in all the flavorful juices. And slice the steak against the grain and as thin as possible for optimum tenderness.
And any leftover herb butter should be used in 3-5 days. It can also be frozen for later.
