  • 2 lbs flank steak
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp rosemary, chopped
  • ground black pepper, to taste


  • Pat flank steak dry with paper towels. Season liberally with salt on all sides. Rest steak at room temperature for 40-45 minutes.
  • Move an oven rack as close to the broiler as you can. Preheat the broiler.
  • Brush steak with olive oil, and season with salt, garlic, rosemary, and black pepper.
  • Place steaks on a baking sheet lined with aluminum foil. Add the baking sheet to the oven rack.
  • Broil for 3-4 minutes, but watch closely. It's time to flip the steaks when you notice a golden brown crust form on the top. Broil the other side for 3-4 minutes. Remove steaks when a meat thermometer reads 135 degrees for medium-rare.
  • Add steaks to a cutting board tented with aluminum foil, and let them rest for 5-10 minutes before serving.
