Flank steak is a long, flat cut of meat from the “flank” or stomach area of the cow and is used in a variety of dishes including London Broil and fajitas. It is significantly tougher than the other beef cuts; therefore, many recipes use moist cooking methods such as braising. This recipe is SO delicious and worth the extra work!
