  • 1/2 teaspoon thyme leaves
  • One 2 1/2-pound flank steak

How to make this recipe

  1. In a blender, combine the vinegar, oil, garlic and thyme and puree until smooth. In a large glass or ceramic dish, pour the marinade over the steak. Let stand for 5 minutes.

  2. Heat a grill pan. Season the steak with salt and pepper. Grill over moderately high heat, turning once, until medium, about 8 minutes per side. Transfer the steak to a board and let stand for 10 minutes. Slice the steak, transfer to plates and serve.

Suggested Pairing

This flavorful steak demands a weighty red with good acidity. The Carmenère grape from Chile is a great pick.
