Spicy Flank Steak

Source: Martha Stewart Living, July 2002

Ingredients

  • 1 seven-ounce can chipotle chiles in adobo sauce
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/3 cup red-wine vinegar
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1 1/2 pounds flank steak

Directions

  1. In the bowl of a food processor fitted with the metal blade, place chipotle peppers, 1/2 cup water, vinegar, salt, and pepper; process until combined. Transfer to a shallow dish. Using a sharp knife, score steak on both sides in a crosshatch pattern, about 1/8 inch deep. Add steak to marinade, turning until well coated. Cover, and refrigerate for 1 hour, turning after 30 minutes.

  2. Preheat broiler. Place steak on a rimmed baking sheet fitted with a rack. Broil 6 minutes per side for medium-rare. Let rest for 5 minutes before slicing. Slice against the grain into 1/4-inch-thick slices, and serve.

    This is tasty and quick. It is spicy! I recommend removing the seeds from the chiles. It's messy but cuts down on the heat.
