Grilled Flank Steak with Charred Sweet Onion Relish
Steak dinner is even better when made on a grill. But why stop with only cooking the meat over the coals?
Why This Recipe Works
Firing up the grill just to cook steaks seems like a waste of flame, so we decided to use the existing heat to make a flavorful relish to accompany the flank steaks. We grilled onions to give them a nice char that would create a smoky flavor for the relish. We found that skewering the onions made it easier to flip them on the grill. To add brightness to the relish, we used red wine vinegar to accentuate the onions. To make the flank steak more tender and easier to eat, we cut the cooked steak against the grain to shorten the tough, chewy fibers. This recipe for Grilled Flank Steak with Charred Sweet Onion Relish is easy and simple, and is a great way to utilize the heat of the grill.
