A smoky and spicy marinade brings out the best in lean flank steak. To make supper come together even faster, marinate the steak up to 8 hours ahead—just don't add the salt until you're ready to grill, as it will dry out the beef. Our fresh Heirloom Tomato Salad is the perfect side for this spicy dish.
