Pin a Day: Peppered Flank Steak and Salsa

I've really come to love steak since moving to a land of beef.  My only problem is learning to make great steak at home.  Formerly, I wouldn't touch raw meat, especially beef, but I've gotten over that fear.  Now, I need to learn to cook steak that tastes great.  I think a big part of this is choosing the right cut of meat.  This recipe, Peppered Flank Steak and Salsa had me using a cut unfamiliar to me.  Prepping the steak was easy, combining spices and rubbing them on the meat.  The real challenge came in cooking it.  I heated up my grill pan and panini press for a few minutes, added a little bit of olive oil and cooked the steak for about 7 minutes on each side.  Meanwhile, I cooked some egg noodles (which are a new favorite of Cecil) and made the salsa from the recipe.  The overall effort was great.  The salsa tasted great on the steak and noodles.  I really liked the salsa, it was mild and was great later with tacos.  I enjoyed the flank steak, it had great flavor without a ton of fat.  This is definitely a recipe I will be making again.
