By using our free meal planner (and the rest of spoonacular.com) you have to agree that you and only you are responsible for anything that happens to you because of something you have read on this site or have bought/cooked/eaten because of this site. After all, the only person who controls what you put in your mouth is you, right?

Spoonacular is a recipe search engine that sources recipes from across the web. We do our best to find recipes suitable for many diets — whether vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, dairy free, etc. — but we cannot guarantee that a recipe's ingredients are safe for your diet. Always read ingredient lists from the original source (follow the link from the "Instructions" field) in case an ingredient has been incorrectly extracted from the original source or has been labeled incorrectly in any way. Moreover, it is important that you always read the labels on every product you buy to see if the product could cause an allergic reaction or if it conflicts with your personal or religious beliefs. If you are still not sure after reading the label, contact the manufacturer.

We also attempt to estimate the cost and calculate the nutritional information for the recipes found on our site. Again, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of this information. Additionally, our nutrition visualizer that suggests that you limit sodium, sugar, etc., and get enough protein, vitamins, and minerals is not intended as medical advice. Similarly, our health tips are based on articles we have read from various sources across the web, and are not based on any medical training. The team behind spoonacular does not possess any medical qualifications and the information may be found to be incorrect or out of date based on future research.

Flank Steak works really well with Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Pinot Noir. Beef and red wine are a classic combination. Generally, leaner cuts of beef go well with light or medium-bodied reds, such as pinot noir or merlot, while fattier cuts can handle a bold red, such as cabernet sauvingnon. One wine you could try is Maddalena Merlot. It has 4.8 out of 5 stars and a bottle costs about 19 dollars.

Maddalena Merlot

Maddalena Merlot offers aromas of ripe fruit and oak spice with hints of vanilla and anise. Ripe fruit flavors include bright plum and raspberry. Fruit flavors greet the palate and soft tannins frame the fresh texture that coats the mouth.

Instructions

Place all of the Mojo Sauce ingredients in a small food processor, or blender. I have a Bullet which I love and is perfect for making the mojo sauce. Place the flank steak in a zip lock bag or shallow dish. Add the sauce; l let marinate in refrigerator for 2 hour to overnight. Remove the flank steak from the marinade; place remaining marinade in saucepan. Let steak stand at room temperature for 30 minutes. Grill the flank steak to your desired doneness. As you can see from the picture, we like ours on the rare side. Let the cooked steak stand for 10 minutes before thinly slicing across the grain. Bring the marinade in the saucepan to a boil. Let it cook for several minutes; it will begin to thicken. Place the avocado, tomato and onion into a bowl. Add the heated mojo sauce to the salad. Serve on the side of the steak, or on top. Your preference.
