an easy mid-week flank steak

Greetings!

This week I made a yummy dish with very little effort. I love those. They are my favorite. 🙂

I bought a flank steak at Trader Joe’s earlier in the week and normally I would have made Emeril’s chimichurri marinade for it.  I LOVE THIS MARINADE. It is so delicious and is posted on my fridge.

However, this week I thought I would look for something a little different. I wanted to use up some thyme I had in the fridge. So I scanned the internet and  settled on this one from http://www.cleanandelicious.com. Love the name and the recipes on there. Two things I did differently…I didn’t add the salt and pepper before grilling and I didn’t blot the marinade off. Oh and I added some fresh rosemary. Ok three things. Whatever.

I continue to be a bad food blogger photographer but I did take this picture of it on the grill alongside the squash, zucchini and red onion i grilled in the basket with just some olive oil and garlic salt.

I was so glad this was my menu for myself and the boyfriend since while I was grilling, my neighbor was working out with her trainer. I yelled over…”so glad we are having lean meat and grilled veggies”! They giggled and then said they were jealous.

So make your marinade, let your meat bathe in it for 24 hours and fire up the grill this week. So quick. So easy. DO IT!
