  • One-third cup olive juice

  • One-third cup of soy sauce

  • One-half teaspoon black pepper

  • ​Two cloves garlic (minced)

  • One-quarter cup honey

  • Two tablespoons red wine vinegar

Dry Rub

  • One teaspoon ground cumin

  • One teaspoon black pepper

  • Two teaspoons coriander

  • ​One-half teaspoon cayenne pepper

  • One teaspoon salt

  • One teaspoon garlic powder

  • One teaspoon paprika


  • Once your grill is hot enough, brush the metal bars of your grill with vegetable or olive oil using a grill brush.

  • You are now ready to place your flank steaks on your grill.

  • As soon as your steaks come in contact with the surface of your grill, they should start to sizzle.

  • During the first few minutes, you will be searing your flank steaks.

  • This will require between three and four minutes.

  • Use a pair of tongs to turn over your steaks.

  • Provided your grill was nice and hot, you should see blackened or dark brown areas of your steak with a crispy appearance.

  • If your meat is not well seared, turn it back over immediately and let your meat continue to cook.

  • Once your flank steaks are well seared, cook them on the other side over high heat for another three to four minutes.

  • This will ensure you have a crispy layer on both sides for a great taste and the ideal texture.

  • You will enjoy the caramelized exterior of your steaks.

  • Once both sides of your flank steaks have been seared, you will need to move them to a cooler section of your grill.

  • You can do this using your tongs.

  • If you are using a gas grill, move your flank steaks over the burner that is off.

  • For a charcoal grill, move your meat to the section with no charcoal underneath.

  • Cooking over high heat is ideal for searing your flank steaks.

  • If you try to continue cooking your meat over high heat, your steaks will burn before they are completely cooked. 

  • When you finish cooking over steady, low heat, the inside of your steaks will have a chance to finish cooking without burning.

  • Cook your steaks over low heat for three more minutes on each side.

  • Keep your lid closed to prevent the heat from escaping.

  • Use a meat thermometer to determine the internal temperature of your flank steaks.

  • Once both sides have been seared and your steaks have cooked over low heat, they should be done.

  • To make certain, insert the pointed end of your meat thermometer into the thickest portion of your steaks.

  • Make certain your thermometer does not come in contact with the surface of your grill while checking the internal temperature of your flank steaks.

  • Never take your steaks off of your grill if the temperature is less than 120 degrees Fahrenheit.

  • Remove your flank steaks from your grill and place them on a cutting board or a platter.

  • Use aluminum foil to make a tent over your flank steaks.

  • Let your meat rest for ten to fifteen minutes.

  • This will enable your flank steaks to absorb the juices for more flavorful and tender results.

  • The aluminum foil will also keep your steaks hot while they are resting.

  • When you are ready to cut your meat, make sure you cut at a perpendicular angle to the surface lines of your steak.

  • This will tenderize your meat even more.

  • You are now ready to serve your steaks and enjoy your efforts.
