Balsamic Marinated Flank SteakFeatured by Albeno Munari Winery in the Gold Wine Club.
One 3-pound flank steak
2 garlic cloves, sliced
1 Tbs. fresh rosemary leaves
1 Tbs. dried oregano
2 Tbs. whole-grain mustard
½ cup balsamic vinegar
1 cup extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for grilling
Salt & freshly ground pepper
In a blender, combine the garlic, rosemary, oregano, mustard and vinegar and puree until the garlic is minced. With the machine on, gradually add the oil and blend until creamy. Season lightly with salt and pepper. Add the meat to a glass or ceramic baking dish and pour all but ¼ cup of the vinaigrette on top; turn the meat to coat. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 4 hours and up to 24 hours.
Remove the steak from the marinade, letting the excess drip off and pat dry with a paper towel. Season the meat with salt and pepper. Light a grill and oil the grates. Grill the steak over moderate heat, turning occasionally, until lightly charred and an instant-read thermometer inserted in the thickest part registers 125 degrees, 10 to 12 minutes. Transfer the steak to a carving board and let rest for 5 minutes. Thinly slice the meat against the grain and serve, passing the remaining vinaigrette at the table.
