How to make the marinade:

  • The first step is to combine the garlic, salt, pepper, and chipotle peppers. You can use a food processor or even a blender.
  • The second step after you make the garlic paste is to combine this one with the rest of the ingredients in a large bowl or even a resealable bag.
  • The next step is to place the meat into the marinade, cover and pop it in the refrigerate for at least an hour.

How to grill the flank steak:

  • No matter if you are using an outdoor or indoor grill, It is important to preheat the grill to medium-high temperature.
  • The first step is to remove the meat from the marinade and tap dry with a paper towel. Then, place the meat on the grill
  • Cook each side of the steak for about 3 to 5 minutes and then place it on a cutting board to rest for at least 10 to 20 minutes before cutting into it.

Notes

  • Take the meat out of the refrigerator 30 minutes before grilling
  • Make sure to cut the meat against the grain with a good sharp knife.
