Skillet Flank Steak with Spicy Red Pepper Sauce
A quick yet flavorful sauce liven up this otherwise humdrum cut.
Why This Recipe Works
Full-flavored flank steak cooks in minutes, making it the perfect option for weeknight meals that need to be prepared as quickly as possible. We wanted to find a sauce that was equally fast, and settled on a spicy red pepper sauce based on Spain’s famous romesco sauce. We prepared the simple sauce from toasted bread, toasted slivered almonds, jarred roasted peppers, and a plum tomato. A quick spin in a food processor with oil, vinegar, and cayenne pepper, and the creamy, complex-tasting sauce was ready to serve on top of our skillet flank steaks.
