Get Grilling –

Before cooking the flank steak on the grill, marinating it in olive oil, red wine vinegar, dried basil, oregano, and Worcestershire sauce is essential. This combination of ingredients enhances the flavor and tenderness of the steak, giving it a Mediterranean-inspired taste that will leave a lasting impression.

When the marinated steak is ready to grill, each ingredient has a unique flavor that contributes to the dish. The steak has a charred and robust taste, while the sweetness of the Craft House Collection® Aurora Long Sweet Peppers blends perfectly with the steak. The onions add a gentle spiciness, and the Roma Tomatoes provide a juicy and flavorful symphony that integrates with the other ingredients.

To finish this culinary masterpiece, a dressing made of aromatic herbs, piquant garlic, and capers is added. The flavors blend beautifully as the dressing coats the dish, bringing the symphony to a harmonious and satisfying conclusion.

How to Create this Recipe –

To create this recipe, the steps are quite simple!

Begin by tenderizing and marinating the steak for a few hours in the refrigerator. Allow it to reach room temperature by taking it out 15 minutes before grilling. Preheat the grill to medium-high to high before you start to cook.

Next, coat the vegetables with a small amount of olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill them over medium-high to high heat with the lid closed for 4 minutes. Flip them over and grill for another 4 minutes before transferring them to a baking sheet.

Once the vegetables are off the grill, it’s time to cook the protein. Place the tenderized and marinated meat on the grill and cook for 5-7 minutes per side or until it reaches your desired level of doneness. Let it rest for a few minutes off the grill before slicing and serving with the grilled vegetables.
