Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • 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°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.


Most flank steaks are around 2 pounds. If you purchase a 2-pound flank steak, cut it in half and use 1 pound for the above recipe and freeze 1 pound for later use.
