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.

Flank Steak works really well with Pinot Noir, Merlot, and Cabernet Sauvignon. 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 Belle Glos Las Alturas Vineyard Pinot Noir. It has 4.6 out of 5 stars and a bottle costs about 35 dollars.

Belle Glos Las Alturas Vineyard Pinot Noir

Located in one of the highest-plantable sites in the Santa Lucia Highlands of Monterey County, this pristine bench offers the Las Alturas Vineyard cool, coastal days with consistent sunshine and a foundation of Gloria sandy loam soil.When planting this 15-acre vineyard, we matched various Pinot Noir clones to individual slopes and soil attributes of the land. Our yields are deliberately kept low in order to preserve the fruit intensity these clonal choices have given us.Very dark burgundy; aromas of black cherry and tilled earth are abundant and a delight for the senses. The palette is full, chewy and rich. It coats the mouth with flavors of berry pie filling, sweet spices, and plum, all encased by a complex textural structure that leads to an elegantly supple finish that calls for another sip.

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.
