1 Chile Garlic Wet Marinade Paste
black pepper

Directions

Perfect juicy flank steak

Prepare the wet marinade.

Arrange steak over a cutting board covered with plastic wrap.

pierce the steak about 20 or 30 times on each side to allow the marinade to penetrate deeply into the flank steak.

Pierce the steak all over with a fork

Rub both sides of the steak evenly with each salt and then the marinade.

Rub the salt into the steak
Just after marinating

Place the steak in a zipper bag (or cover with plastic wrap) seal, distribute the wet marinade and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours or even better, overnight.

Preheat the grill for 10 minutes.

Using paper towels, wipe the marinade off the steak to prevent burning.

Season both sides with black pepper.

Grill the steak until well browned and grill marked over direct heat for about 4 to 5 minutes.

Using tongs, turn steak over, grill until the second side is well browned and marked, about 4 minutes.

With a paring knife, make small cut into thickest part of meat, if meat is slightly less done than desired, place steak onto a plate and meat will keep cooking as it rests.

Loosely cover the steak with some aluminum foil and allow to rest at least 10 minutes for the juices to redistribute. Use a plate to collect any juices.

With a sharp knife, slice steak about ¼ inch thick against grain on bias.

Excellent in every way, super juicy. Didn't notice any real spiciness from the chipotle chile, will add more next time. It did seem to add a nice gentle smokiness however.
