Cooking temperatures for steak

Cook your flank steak just the way you like it.

It does not take long to reach your medium temperature with flank steak.

Cooking it a little under is best, then when you add it back to the pan it will cook to the temperature you are wanting.

To gauge the perfect temperature, use a meat thermometer.

  • Rare: Temperature: 115°F; Remove when it reaches 110°F
  • Medium-Rare: Temperature: 125°F; Remove when it reaches 120°F
  • Medium: Temperature: 135°F; Remove when it reaches 130°F

Tips for cooking flank steak

It is not just the cut of meat that determines how tender it is, it is also how you cut it.

Find the direction of the grain (which way the muscle fibers are aligned), then slice across the grain rather than parallel with it.

Flank steak only takes a few minutes per side to cook.

A meat thermometer is best when cooking steaks so you do not overdue your meat.

This meal comes together quickly and easily and is especially amazing topped with the lemon garlic butter mushrooms.

It is the perfect pairing to this tender and juicy steak!

  • Add some olive oil to your skillet and cook on each side for 3-4 minutes.  Y
  • You can cook the steak until medium (130-135 degrees.)  Let rest for 10 minutes and slice against the grain.
  • You can let the steak marinate for at least an hour or overnight before cooking. No longer than 24 hours though.
  • Cook steak on high heat for 1-2 minutes to sear on each side then turn down the heat to cook the inside.
  • Use a grill for cooking your flank steak, cook on high heat for 1 to 2 minutes then cook on a lower temperature burner until temperature reaches about medium.
  • If you are cooking for a many, simply double your marinade amount and add in the amount of meat that you are needing to make.
  • Garlic does not cook well on the meat. I like to scrape it off the best I can when searing the meat.
  • Drizzle some of the marinade on the meat for added flavoring.
  • Enjoy your flank steak with mashed potatoes, cauliflower or asparagus to make this a complete meal.

Storing lemon garlic butter flank steak

  • Making Ahead: make your marinade ahead of time with your flank steak. Your steak can marinate up to 24 hours. No longer.
  • Refrigerating: after your steak and mushrooms are completely cooled, add them to a ziplock bag or an airtight container and refrigerate for 5 to 7 days.
  • Freezing: if you are wanting to freeze your steak you will have to let the mushrooms go. They do not do well frozen and then warmed up. Let your steak cool completely and add to a ziplock bag or a tight sealed baggie. Store in the freezer for up to 1 month before reheating again. When ready to reheat place in the refrigerator over night to thaw completely.
  • Warming Up: place your steak on a pan over the stove top to reheat. Cook until warm stirring it occasionally. If you choose to microwave, place on a microwave safe dish and warm up in 1 to 2 minute increments not over heating so it doesn’t dry out.
