Slicing Flank Steak

When slicing Flank Steak, with or against the grain ?

    against, and on the bias, thin slices is how I do it.

    Think of the grain like a garden hose. If you slice with the grain, you will bet a couple complete hoses. If you slice against, you get many short sections of hose.

    Thin is in on the slices as it makes it more tender!

    You will get more kudos if you slice it against the grain.

    The thinner the meat the more angle you cut to get nice slices...and against the grain like the others already offered above!
