When I’m meal prepping, I like to multi-task. Often I have something in the air fryer, the pressure cooker, in the oven, and even in the broiler simultaneously. It’s easy to do that when you pre-plan your meals and know your timeline.
I love this marinade for flat iron steak (or any cut of beef) because it allows me to do other dishes while the meat sits in the bag to absorb all of the flavors for four hours. If you marinate the steak while you’re at work during the day, you’ll be ready to have a great meal on the table for your family in under 30 minutes. Steam a package of vegetables in the microwave and it’s a simple clean up as well!
Broiled Flat Iron Steak
- 2 Pounds Flat Iron Steak
- 2/3 Cup Red Wine (I used full-bodied Westerly Merlot)
- 1/2 Cup Olive Oil
- 4 Cloves Crushed Garlic
- Freshly Ground Sea Salt & Black Pepper
Combine all of the marinade ingredients in a gallon sized zip bag then add the raw steak to the bag. Push out as much air as you can then zip the bag closed. Place the bag in the refrigerator and allow the meat to marinate for 4-6 hours.
Set the oven temperature to broil.
Line a broiler pan with foil and top with either the broiler pan top or a roasting rack if one fits on top of your pan. My oven is a Kitchen Aid and didn’t come with a broiler pan. There was an option to order one by mail or $49 + Tax and shipping. I searched the part number on Amazon and found it (with the included roasting rack) for $34.51 + free shipping! I use it all the time!
When oven has reached it’s temperature, place the pan under the broiler and cook for 6-8 minutes per side. If you have a nice thick piece of steak you should get a medium end result. Adjust your time up or down to fit your desired degree of doneness.
For most tender result, slice diagonally across the grain. #ThisGirlLovesToEat
