Flank steak recipe

Discussion in 'Beef' started by boisblancboy, Sep 10, 2014.

  1. I looking for some suggestions for smoking a flank steak. My wife makes a good grilled flank steak so I want to try smoking one.

    I don't know if I should brine or rub or a marinade? Looking for help. Thanks

    I will use a mixture of Salt, Black Pepper, Onion Powder, Garlic Powder & Ground Mustard Seed.  All equal Parts.  Then around 1 TBS per pound of meat.  Vacuum bag for 3-4 days to let the magic happen.  Then smoke over Hickory or Pecan.  

    Sometimes I will also just use Tatonka Dust applied in the same manner.

    The beef is darn good on it's own.  If I have it, I may add some blue cheese on top.

    I don't think brining would do much for it. A marinade never hurts. For beef I like plain Worcestershire sauce. About a half cup in a zip top bag with the meat, squeeze the air out and let it sit for a few hours to overnight. Then a rub like Donr suggested about an hour before smoking.
    For the smoke, a reverse sear would work nicely. A low temp smoke for a couple hours until your meat reaches maybe 20 degrees under your final target, a 20 minute rest, then put it over hot coals until you reach your target. Good luck!
