Broiled Marinated Hanger Steak – Recipe!

Print Friendly

Preparing a steak is not a difficult task, while many of us choose to slap it on the grill outdoors, or toss it in a cast-iron skillet on the stove top, there can be better ways to enjoy a good piece of beef.  Marinating steak before cooking can add such personality and additional flavor.  Yes, I know you purists believe steak should be cooked plain, without much seasoning, except for salt and maybe some black pepper – “Let the meat speak for itself,” but have you thoroughly considered the alternative?  A little time spent in a simple marinade can make all the difference in the world.

Using a good soy sauce, like a dark Chinese soy sauce has intense flavor, however in these times you can go with what is in your pantry.  Fresh garlic and a dollop of Dijon mustard is all that you need to send steak into a new orbit, and creating the most melt-in-your-mouth bite of beef you’ve ever tasted.

As far as cuts of beef, a good Hanger Steak or Butcher’s Cut, is a nice choice, however Flank or a thicker Skirt Steak will do just fine.  Cutting it across the grain after cooking will ensure the right chew and tenderness expected after broiling.  The broiler makes a nice alternative to a grill, less likely it will dry out, especially if you’re not watching it closely enough.  Another good tip is to use foil under your meat while cooking, so clean-up is a snap.
