Tips

  • Try to use fresh meat.
  • You can also use canola oil or sesame oil instead of olive oil.
  • You can also use beef fillet, or tenderloin instead of flank steak.
  • If you want, you can add dry mustard and lime juice to the marinade sauce.
  • You can also cook vegetables such as peppers, broccoli and carrots with the meat using the broth.
  • Make sure the oil is hot before putting the meat in the pan. To test whether the oil is hot, put a small piece of meat in the oil. If the oil is sizzling, you can start cooking the meat.
  • To prevent the steak from sticking to the grill, cook both sides evenly and turn the meat as little as possible.
  • Do not cut it to see if the steak is cooked or not. This can cause the meat to dry out. You can check the temperature of the meat with the help of a thermometer.
  • Let the meat rest for 5-10 minutes before serving. Then cut and serve. In this way, you can protect the juices of the meat and prevent it from drying.
  • You can also choose Worcestershire sauce to add flavor to the steak.
