Total Time 4 hours 10 minutes
Servings 4 servings


  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic peeled and crushed with the side of a knife
  • 3 tablespoons red wine or low sodium beef broth
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons freshly ground pepper
  • sea salt to taste
  • 1 1/2 pound flank steak
  • 2 sprigs fresh rosemary
  • 1 large re-sealable bag
  • Sea salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil


  • In a small bowl, combine the first 6 ingredients (oil through salt). Place the flank steaks and rosemary in a large, re-sealable plastic bag and pour the marinade over it making sure the entire steak is covered. Marinate for at least 4 hours or overnight, turning the bag several times.

  • In a large skillet, heat the oil over high heat. Add the steak and let it cook, undisturbed for 4 minutes.
  • Using tongs, turn the steak and let cook another 4 minutes. For medium rare, the meat thermometer should register 135° or be slightly firm to the touch.
  • Let rest for 5 minutes before cutting into thin slices, being sure to cut against the grain.
