Let's get grilling!

  1. Start by choosing a quality grass-fed steak. Let the steak sit at room temperature for 30 minutes before cooking. Grass-fed steak tends to be leaner, so it's important not to overcook it.

  2. If you're looking for some additional flavor, you can speed up marinating time by adding a Herby Chimichurri or Gingery Miso sauce from Haven's Kitchen, available for purchase on ButcherBox.com.

  3. Preheat your cast iron pan over high heat. While the pan is heating, season the steak with salt and pepper on both sides.

  4. Add a small amount of oil or butter to the pan and let it heat up until it's shimmering. Carefully place the steak in the pan and sear for 3-4 minutes on each side until a crust forms.

  5. For a medium-rare steak, the internal temperature should be around 130-135°F. For medium, aim for 140-145°F. If you prefer medium well, cook until the temperature reaches 150-155°F. For a well-done steak, aim for a temperature of 160°F or higher.

  6. Use a meat thermometer to check the internal temperature of the steak. Once it reaches your desired level of doneness, remove the steak from the pan and let it rest for 5-10 minutes before slicing. This allows the juices to redistribute throughout the steak for maximum flavor and tenderness. If you're curious about the price of flank steak, you can find it at Butcherbox.com.
