Flank Steak Marinade
  1. 1.5 lbs-2 lbs. flank steak (or Skirt Steak)
  2. montreal steak seasoning
  3. 2 tbsp. olive oil
  4. 2 cloves garlic, minced
  5. 2 tbsp. fresh lemon juice
  6. 1 tbsp. spicy brown mustard
  7. ½ tsp. crushed red pepper
  8. 2 tbsp. freshly chopped parsley
For the Salad
  1. 1 bunch of Arugula
  2. 2 tbsp. olive oil
  3. 2 tbsp. lemon juice
  4. 1 tsp. dijon mustard
  5. 1 tbsp. red wine vinegar
  6. salt and pepper, to taste
  1. In a small bowl, whisk together the olive oil, lemon juice, mustard, red pepper, garlic, and parsley. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Cover and set aside and let marinade for at least 30 minutes, or place in the fridge all day.
  2. Grill or sear in a skillet to desired doneness over medium-high heat (we did ours about 5 minutes per side but yours will vary depending on the size and thickness of your steak and how you like yours cooked!) Remove from grill and set on a cutting board. Cover with foil and let it rest for a minute while you prepare your salad.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk together 2 tbsp. olive oil, 2 tbsp. lemon juice, 1 tsp. dijon mustard, and 1 tbsp red wine vinegar and salt and pepper, to taste. Drizzle desired amount of dressing over the arugula and toss to coat evenly.
  4. Slice the flank steak thinly against the grain and serve over the salad.

    Hi! How much Montreal steak seasoning do you use, and what step do you use it in the recipe? Thanks!

      use it like you would salt and pepper when you are marinating the steak. 🙂

    Made this tonight but accidentally forgot the Montreal seasoning … so just salt and peppered the steak before marinating. It was DELICIOUS and so easy!! Served w crispy roasted red potatoes. Will be putting this on a regular rotation 🙂
