Recipe type: Entree

Total time: 
Serves: 1
  • 6, 8 or 12 oz. flank steak
  • 1 or 2 Tablespoons Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1 or 2 Tablespoons Dijon Mustard
  • 1 or 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  1. Whisk the Worcestershire, mustard, olive oil, salt and pepper together in a small bowl.
  2. Pour the marinade over the steak and rub it in so that both sides are coated.
  3. Allow to rest for 20 minutes at room temperature.
  4. Heat a skillet over medium high heat. When pan is hot add enough olive oil to coat the bottom of the pan.
  5. Wipe most of the marinade off the steak. (You can add it to the pan for extra flavor.)
  6. Place steak in pan and cook for 4 minutes without moving. (This allows the meat to sear and will seal in the flavors.)
  7. Flip the steak and cook the other side for another 3 to 4 minutes.
  8. Remove the steak from the pan, cover, and let sit undisturbed for 5 minutes.
  9. Slice steak into thin slices perpendicular to the grain of the meat.
The above method will yield one perfect medium rare steak. If you prefer your steak to be rare or medium adjust the cooking time down or up by one minute per side.

If you prefer to use a meat thermometer check the steak during the last minute of cooking.
For a a rare steak remove from the pan at 130 - 135 degrees; medium rare 140 degrees and medium should register 155 degrees. The steak will finish cooking while it rests.
