Grill, covered, 11 to 16 minutes (over medium heat on preheated gas grill, 16 to 21 minutes) for medium rare (63°C) to medium (72°C) doneness, turning occasionally. Carve steak across the grain into thin slices. Season with salt, as desired.

Cook’s Tip:

To broil, place steak on rack in broiler pan so surface of beef is 5 to 8 cm from heat. Broil flank steak 13 to 18 minutes for medium rare to medium doneness, turning once.
