Once again having good products means that they can be treated simply and be delicious. John put a dry rub on the flank steak. The rub consisted of salt, pepper, garlic powder, and cumin. He did that around lunch time and then the meat sat in the refrigerator enjoying its rub until he took it out about an hour before dinner. After heating up the grill for 15 minutes the steak cooked for 1.5 minutes on each side followed by an additional 1 minute on each side. Then it rested for 5 minutes before he sliced it up. Flank steak is a very beefy tasting cut of meat but you have to be sure to cut it across the grain or else it turns out tough.
I microwaved an 8 ounce potato sliced in half lengthwise for 7 minutes and then handed it over to John to put on the grill. He cooked it for 3 minutes on the cut side and 2 minutes on the skin side. While he was taking care of the meat and potatoes, I steamed the broccoli and gave it a butter spritz.
Dinner was delicious! We do not usually eat red meat so it is always kind of a treat. Although this is embarrassing I like to eat my meat and potato with ketchup. It satisfies my inner child.
