Balsamic Glazed Flank Steak with Fall Fruit Salsa
- Preheat broiler. Trim fat from steak. Score both sides of steak in a diamond pattern by making shallow diagonal cuts at 1-inch intervals. Sprinkle both sides of steak lightly with salt and pepper. Place steak on unheated rack of a broiler pan. Broil 3 to 4 inches from heat for 14 minutes, turning once. Brush both sides of steak with 1 tablespoon of the balsamic vinegar; broil for 1 to 2 minutes more or until medium doneness (160 degrees F). Cover with foil; let steak stand for 5 minutes before slicing.
- Meanwhile, for fruit salsa, in a medium bowl combine apples, pear, cranberries, the remaining 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar, the sugar, and cinnamon.
- Thinly slice steak; serve with fruit salsa.
