Flank Steak with Garlic Butter Sauce

flank steak with garlic butter sauce recipe

Grilled Flank Steak with Garlic Butter Sauce, the best flank steak recipe ever. So easy and so flavorful. Perfect for summer grilling.

If you have been to my house for dinner in the last few months, there is a good chance that I have made you this steak for dinner. I think that this was my 5th time making this. I love this recipe. It is easy, and incredibly delicious.

I like to use flank steak, but you could use skirt steak, sirloin, whatever you like. The garlic butter “sauce” is more like butter and minced garlic melted together. The garlic mellows as it melts into the butter, so it is not as strong as it sounds.

Pour the sauce over the flank steak and top with lots of chopped parsley. I serve it with grilled asparagus, and if I am really inspired, baked potatoes with my homemade ranch. It might sound a little weird, but it is basically herb sour cream. Perfect for summer grilling.

the color run DCWe did The Color Run this weekend, and I have to say, I have never been more proud of my children. My little guy does not like to be dirty – at all. He was such a trooper and had the best attitude. He did not complain once and had a smile on his face the entire time. My other littles were equally amazing.

We had planned on just walking it, but they wanted to run and ran at least half of it. It really is the happiest 5k on the planet. The race is not timed, is super organized, and meant for people of all ages. Lots of kids, parents with strollers, and pretty much every age group is represented. Some run, some walk, everyone has a great time.

I think that I will be scrubbing the blue out of my skin and scalp for the next few days, but it was well worth it. If it comes to your city, I highly recommend signing up. Ava told me that it was the most fun that she has ever had.

flank steak with garlic butter sauce recipeI am not a huge kitchen gadget kind of girl, but I am loving this garlic twist. Use the bottom to crack the skins off of the garlic, and add the garlic and twist it around until it is minced. I usually use my microplane to mince garlic, but this works great if you need quite a few.
