Healthy Flank Steak Recipes

When it comes to transporting ingredients, flank steak is the ultimate vehicle. It can be dressed to fill tacos, mix into stir-fries, or top on salads. You won't be running short on ways to serve it up anytime soon. Before you start firing up the grill, a quick tip: Before serving, always slice against the grain to avoid chewy texture. Also, be sure to allow the meat to rest for 10-15 minutes before slicing.

We're starting with flavor-packed Thai Steak Salad. A combination of fresh herbs—mint, cilantro, and basil—impart delicious fresh flavor.

Vegetable and Steak Fajitas with "Killed" Jalapeños

Fajitas can be a little boring, don't you think? Not when they're topped with these lime-softened jalapeños. If you like a big burst of lime, drain but don't rinse the chiles before garnishing. Placing the steak briefly in the freezer firms it up, making it easier to slice thinly.
