A 30-minute marination will help tenderize flank steak and heighten its flavor.
The Flank Steak is located around the stomach area. The muscles line the outside of this region giving it a long, thick-grained profile with some fat lining. The steak is 6 in. wide, 7 in. long, and 1/2 in. thick in size. The meat derives its unique color and flavor from its active nature of expanding and contracting.
