Herb Rubbed Flank Steak

Growing up a meat and potatoes girl, I LOVE steak. 

This is a dandy recipe for flank steak that you mix up a pretty herb rub and roast it in the oven.
How easy is that?

Here's how to make it: 

(Sorry about the lack of pics on this one...I got so excited over the food I forgot to take the different steps, but you'll's easy I promise!)

You'll need a flank steak, beef broth, red wine, herbs such as oregano, thyme, parsley, garlic powder, olive oil and lemon zest.  Oh, and a heavy cast iron (or any oven safe) skillet.

Mix oregano, thyme, parsley, garlic powder, olive oil, and lemon zest in a small bowl and set aside. (I used fresh minced garlic in this one, cause that's what I had..)  (either is fine)

Season your steak with salt and pepper.  Add steak to a hot skillet on the stove over medium high heat and sear for about 2 min on each side.  Add the wine and beef broth and cook for about 1 min.

Using a brush, rub the herb mixture over the top of the steak.  Smother it will all of the mixture.

Put it in the oven, preheated to 400 degrees for about 10-15 min for rate to medium rare.  Take it out and let it rest. 

You want to cut this steak against the grain like this.

Serve with the pan sauce if you would like!!!  So Yummy!
