Marinated Flat Iron Steak

As all of you know we live in Phoenix. Our winters are great and our summers are hot. So what do we do in the summer time? Well… we barbeque. Yes! We do! After all it is not hot enough!!!

I have to admit there is something wonderful to see a beautiful piece of meat sizzle and cook on the grill. We can always add natural wood to the briquettes to give it a different flavor, or enhance it.

My dad loved to barbeque. To him it was a labor of love and I miss it. He taught me brush any meat with rosemary springs soaked on olive oil.

Last night we had a very lean Flat Iron Steak. Made a quick marinate, let it rest and tenderize for one hour. On the grill it went and voila dinner was served. Not exactly…. We also made roasted potatoes and a refreshing salad with a tarragon vinaigrette to go along.

I do love to read cooking magazines and I found this great suggestion: Cut the long piece of flat iron steak lengthwise to split it in two long strips. Doing so it will allow the marinate to penetrate better and shorten the amount of time to let it rest. Great suggestion that I will use from now on. The meat was tender, juicy and, most important, cooked evenly.

Grated zest of 1 lemon

3. Add the meat to it and place in the refrigerator for an hour or more.
