Default Tips on grilling flank steak?

Flank steak tips? I've never cooked it before- what do you recommend? High heat? Reverse Sear?

Personally I do high heat char on both sides but it keeps the center moist. Too much heat too long turns it into jerky. Cut against the grain.

I had the same question a month ago and got a ton of great replies. Mine turned out great, yours will too!

Yep! Hot and fast! And it takes on a good marinade too, I love to soak mine in teriyaki, comes out great.
And don't overcook it, rare and medium rare is real good.

Marinate, grill on HOT ARSE DIRECT HEAT for only about 1 minute per side, let rest and slice against the grain.


Alton Brown's does similar with skirt steak HERE, which is a similar cut.

Definitely high heat, get the grill as hot as ya can then toss them on. Flank and skirts are really good with a marinade. Teriyaki is great, my favorite store bought is World Harbors brand. They should have it at most grocery stores. I did a little writeup on them on my site,
