This thin, fan-shaped cut is the abdominal muscle of the animal. The long, course muscle fibers are flavorful and lean, yielding a delicious steak that can be prepared quickly and stand up to strongly flavored marinades. Today, the flank steak is more known as a quick grilling cut, but it is also equally good for stir fry and tacos, making this a great last-minute go-to-item for dinner. For the best result,
make sure to slice the piece against the grain into thin
strips prior to serving.
