Espresso-Balsamic Grilled Flank Steak

Espresso-Balsamic Grilled Flank Steak

Ingredients:

Preparation:

  1. Whisk together all the marinade ingredients and place in a sealable plastic bag or flat, shallow container large enough to hold the meat.
  2. Rinse the meat, pat dry, and place in the marinade, covered, for 2 hours minimum (up to 24 hours). Turn occasionally.
  3. Heat the grill of your choice to medium-high heat.
  4. Remove the steak from the marinade, scraping any clinging sauce and shallots back into the dish with a spatula. Pat the steak dry, and oil and salt the surface lightly.
  5. Grill 3-6 minutes per side, taking care not to overcook. Baste with the marinade while cooking, reserving at least a ½ cup.
  6. When done, set on a platter to rest, tented with foil, while you finish the sauce (let rest at least 5 minutes before slicing).
  7. Put the remaining marinade in a small saucepan and bring to the boil along with any juices that collect on the platter.
  8. Reduce to a simmer and cook for a minute or two; the sauce should thicken slightly.
  9. Slice the steak thinly against the grain and spoon the sauce over to serve.
