Recipe Notes

  • This juicy grilled flank steak can easily be doubled – just use the whole can of beef and the entire bottle of Italian salad dressing.
  • Slice the leftover steak and use it for a healthy steak salad the next day for dinner or lunch.

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Combine the beer, salad dressing and fajita seasoning in a plastic zipper bag or shallow dish. Stir to combine. Add the flank steak and squish or turn to coat. Marinate in the refrigerator for at least 8 hours or overnight. 
  2. When ready to cook, remove the steak from the marinade (discard the marinade). Heat an outdoor grill, indoor grill or grill pan over medium-high heat. Grill the steak for about 15 to 20 minutes or until desired doneness. Let the steak rest 10 minutes before slicing against the grain.

Fajita flank steak sounds downright delicious. So quick to make, too!

I made this last night and cooked it on The Blackstone griddle at a very high temperature. The end result was totally unexpected. It tasted exactly like London Broil! It was very tender for flank steak and everyone loved it! The marinade was not overpowering and we could really taste the meat itself. Thank you very much for sharing.
