Flank steak is what cooks and chefs love the most. When you cook it medium-rare, it’s perfect. A beautiful marbled meat, it’s also one of the best values for your money. For a quick meal, just grill it for three minutes on each side. In a word: mouthwatering. (If your store doesn’t stock flank steak, you can substitute hangar steak instead, which is similar in texture and flavor.)
