well just cooked the flank and man oh man was it good! i used the naked whiz idea of marinating in oil,soy,garlic.....and the cooking direct on the coals for 90 secs a side. could have gone 2 min per side but i like my meat rare so it was good but if i were to serve to others i would have cooked longer.

after the 15 minute rest in the foil....

    looks good to me like to ask since you cooked on the lump did it pick up any residue?

    That looks great to a fellow rare beef fan. You might want to try hot tubbing next time which works well even with meat as thin as a flank steak. I know as I just egged one to perfection Saturday night!

    I wanted to respond the other night but knew I couldn't in a timely enough fashion, but my favorite of ALL FAVORITE meals uses a flank steak. I'll take it over steak, lobster or you name it! I'm talking about the meal that I have fixed to celebrate my birthday for each of the last 8 years and many other occasions over the last 33 years. It takes a bit of prep, but it's well worth the effort and elevates a lower cut of meat to a King's meal. It's one that I tell my wife if necessary just grab my collar like a dog to make me stop eating as my eyes glaze over and my stomach never senses FULL! Besides, any left overs are terrific eating cold over the kitchen sink the next day or two. If you're interested in the recipe I'll gladly share it, so just email me - otherwise I won't take the time nor effort to type it.

    Ron, I'd love to see it as I have never cooked a flank on the Egg. I tried once a long time ago on a grill and it was tough.
    Never tried it again, as I knew I did not know how. :)
    I've heard they're great tho, so would like to try your way.
    Thanks alot,

    Mike, You have been really busy but let me tell you, any time spent cooking like that is time well spent, looking to find what the translation to flank steak might be...probably falda, do you use it also for shreading??

    First pic looks like the beginning of a lava pit. Pretty tough to get a thermapen in there. Flank steak is one of my new favorites, will have try it on the rocks.
  • what did you marande the flank steak in? that looks great

    Wow! You weren't kidding about rare, were you?
  • mmm, I LOVE flank steak. Great cook!

    FWIW, that "rare" is what the French refer to as "bleu."
