Dinner Tonight: Flank Steak

Flank steak is versatile, easy to prepare, and one of the leaner cuts of beef with only 2.6 grams saturated fat per 3-ounce serving. A rich source of protein and iron, it is relatively inexpensive, with great beefy flavor for a lean cut. Cut it cross-grain for tender slices, which are easy to stretch in subsequent recipes. Flank steak soaks up marinades well and works with flavors from around the globe.
