Why the “not so?” Well I was too lazy to grill the steaks so I broiled them instead. I read a few recipes for flap steaks and they all started off pretty similarly. Someone was perusing the meat aisle and saw this meat called flap meat. What. So I was looking for skirt steak in Costco, and my mom and I stumbled on this beef loin flap meat. It sounded questionable, but with trusty Google I figured it was similar to flank steak. Good enough for me!
We got 2 pounds to test it out, and kinda followed the recipe and broiled the meat instead of grilling. Successful experiment!
What you’ll need
- 3 tablespoons soy sauce
- 3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
- 3 tablespoons pure maple syrup (I used honey instead)
- 4 garlic cloves, chopped
- 2 pounds sirloin flap steaks
What to do
- Blend soy sauce, vinegar, syrup, garlic, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper in a blender until smooth. (I just mixed everything in the tupperware…as you can see…)
- Toss steaks with mixture. Marinate at room temperature about 15 minutes.
- When you want to consume the meat, turn your oven on broil or set to 500 degrees F.
- I placed the meat on a rack on a baking sheet. Broil for 4 minutes.
- Take the pan out and FLIP THE MEAT! Broil for another 4 minutes. (The 4 minute intervals produced a medium rare, you can adjust the time to your meat doneness preference! I wouldn’t go too crazy…500 degrees can do some damage)
- Take the meat out and let the deliciousness rest for a few minutes. CONSUME!
