What Goes Well with Flank Steak?
Everyone needs a special occasion dinner to impress a loved one for a big occasion: date night, anniversary meal, birthday dinner, or when you need to show that special someone you have their back. This easy but delicious date night flank steak dinner will delight your guests. The perfect night begins with a well-planned dinner.
Start with Zesty Cuban Style Grilled Flank Steak marinated in a citrus sauce that perfectly tenderizes and flavors the meat. Then, add sides that enhance the flavors:
- Chimichurri Sauce – made with parsley, cilantro, and spices blended into a pesto-like sauce, this topping enhances the citrus aspects of the steak.
- Blood Orange Fennel Salad with Pistachios is a crisp and refreshing salad that tastes even better than it looks. Blood oranges are seasonal in the winter but can be replaced with navel oranges or grapefruit if unavailable at your store. The dressing has a touch of cumin, which compliments the spices in the sweet potatoes.
- Spicy Roasted Sweet potato Fries. Nothing goes better with steak than fries, and this recipe perfectly matches. The recipe has a unique spice blend that works well with all the other dishes in the meal.
Should You Marinate Flank Steak?
Yes! An acidic marinade will both flavor and tenderize the meat. This marinade recipe uses oranges and limes, juice, and zest. It adds a unique citrusy flavor to the flank steak and breaks down the tough fibers.
