- 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.
