CHB Recipe: Balsamic Marinated Flank Steak

February 13, 2020

A tangy balsamic marinade gives a Certified Hereford Beef flank steak a great kick of flavor! Let the steak marinate overnight for an extra tender and flavorful meal.


  • 1 beef Certified Hereford Beef flank steak (about 1-1/2 pounds)
  • Salt and pepper

Balsamic Marinade:

  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Dijon-style mustard
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar

Combine marinade ingredients in small bowl. Place beef steak and marinade in food-safe plastic bag; turn steak to coat. Close bag securely and marinate in refrigerator 6 hours or as long as overnight, turning occasionally.

Remove steak from marinade; discard marinade. Place steak on grid over medium, ash-covered coals. Grill, covered, 11 to 16 minutes (over medium heat on preheated gas grill, 16 to 21 minutes) for medium rare (145°F) to medium (160°F) doneness, turning occasionally.

Season steak with salt and pepper, as desired. Carve steak crosswise into thin slices.
