"Found @ realsimpledotcom & modified slightly, it took this recipe using flank steak & Brie cheese to make a believer of me. Altho a very flavorful cut of meat, it's often a tenderizing challenge. It can be grilled, pan-fried, broiled or braised for increased tenderness. It takes longer to braise, but I favor that method & feel the best 1st step is some wicked use of your meat mallet. Then you braise the meat, allow it to rest & use a super sharp knife to slice it thinly across the grain. While that's my best advice Re flank steak, the recipe doesn't read that way, so you'll have a "getting started" choice to make. The pic of this recipe is so tantalizing that I'm ready to forgive flank steak even if it resists being tenderized. Time does not include the rest time. ENJOY!"
