Help?Need help on flank steak/app idea.
Flank Steak is going to be a part of my Christmas night gathering...
I am going with a tapas/app theme - easily eaten foods.
I just dont have any idea of how to serve this flank steak app style, cant just slap it on the plate.. any ideas??
Really lost on this one..
I marinate flank steak in red wine, soy sauce and some balsamic, broil then cut into thin slices on the bias; serve with either a good sour dough roll (already sliced) or thin slices of rye with mayo, butter, salt, pepper on the side and some cornichons and crisp radishes. A side spinach salad with some goat cheese would be nice too (went down very well yesterday at our extended family's kids Christmas lunch served with penne carbonera - big hit). Mme Zoe and I roasted a filet last New Years and served it sliced cold with the above accompaniments - guests loved it (sick of turkey at this point in the season, it went over very well).
Check the Saveur web site for Pacific Rim Flank Steak. It is one of the most oft-requested items in our party food repertoire. We use all of the marindade on the steak, then reduce; the flavor is much better.
Here is a recipe for a tapas carpaccio with olives and manchego. Substitute flank steak for the sirloin. You can sear the flank for a minute on each side before freezing to add flavor and give it a more attractive presentation. This can be eaten as is or served on thin slices of baguette that has been rubbed with garlic and olive oil.
