Flank steak is easy to prepare, but should be marinated first. I will place my frozen steak in a marinade before I leave for work. When I come home it's perfect for the grill. You can play with different marinades that have an acid base, wine, lemon juice, tomato juice, or vinegar to tenderize the meat. Throw in a clove of garlic or an onion and some herbs (e.g., pepper, oregano, rosemary, a few red pepper flakes, etc.) to add to the flavor.
One of the nice things about flank steak is that it cooks quickly. You only need to grill it for 4-5 minutes over a medium flame to get a medium-rare steak. Let the steak rest for 5-7 minutes before slicing.
