The recipe calls for a lean cut of beef, flat iron steaks. The result is delicious, juicy steak that makes any dinner taste amazing. It is so easy to prepare, marinade for 15 min – 2 hours, then cook in a closed grill for about 15-20 minutes. It’s that easy!

If you know me, you know the importance I put on family meal time together. It is one of my favorite parts of the day, enjoying good food and hearing about everyone’s day. It’s the best “family time” activity.

I hope your family will enjoy this recipe as well!
