Definition: The flank steak is technically not a steak, but has become so popular in the last few decades that it can't be ignored. The flank is the belly muscle of the cow and is typically cut into small pieces. The flank is very flavorful but contains almost no fat and will be tough pretty much no matter how you cook it.

The flank steak became very popular with the mainstream introduction of fajitas.

Traditionally, however, this is actually the steak known for the dish London Broil.

To make a flank steak tender it needs to be braised (cooked in liquid) or it will need to be marinated. Grill it hot and fast after a 2 to 4 hours in a good marinade and it will be fantastic. Flank is one of my favorite cuts because of its excellent flavor and texture. Always carve flank steak and carve it against the grain to prevent it from being overly tough.
