Grilled Flank Steak with Butter Chive Grilled Potatoes

Grilled Flank Steak with Butter Chive Grilled Potatoes

Hi all! I’m back from Phoenix. It was a crazy week. Unfortunately, my house hunting was not so fruitful. I did sign a lease for a townhouse that I liked, but after really thinking about and measuring, I realized that our bedroom furniture would not fit very well because the bedrooms were too small. Our king size bed would take up the whole room. Seriously. And let me tell you right now, we are NOT giving up our king size bed. It is glorious. Our dresser and nightstands aren’t very big, but it would be a really tight squeeze and I think it would just drive us nuts. So, we took back the offer and are now holding out for something better. It’s a little scary since we are supposed to move in one month, but I am trying to remain positive that something will come up!

I wanted to make a nice dinner for my husband this weekend after his week of being a bachelor where he ate a bunch of frozen stuff all week long. Although fall is fast-approaching, it is still a gazillion degrees here in FL so grilling was the way to go! I love meals where you can throw everything on the grill! This meal is so simple. The marinade for the steak is so tasty! I also grilled some fresh corn on the cob and topped it with some extra of the chive butter that I used for the potatoes.

Grilled Flank Steak with Butter Chive Grilled Potatoes

Yield: serves 4

Prep Time: 6 hours (including marinating)

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Ingredients:

For the flank steak:

  • 1 1/2 lb. flank steak
  • 1/4 cup low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 tbs. Montreal steak seasoning

For the potatoes:

  • About 8 red-skinned potatoes, rinsed and scrubbed, then sliced in half length-wise
  • 2 tbs. unsalted butter
  • 1 tbs. chopped chives
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic salt (or to taste)

Directions:

For the flank steak:

  1. Place the steak in a deep dish or baking dish. Whisk together the vinegar, soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, and the Montreal steak seasoning in a small bowl. Pour the mixture evenly over the steak. Cover with foil and refrigerate for at least 6 hours.
  2. To cook the steak, heat grill on medium heat. Grill the steak for about 5 minutes and then turn over and continue to cook for another 4 minutes or so or until the meat is cooked to your preference. Let stand for 5 minutes before slicing.

For the potatoes:

  1. Boil the potatoes for about 10-15 minutes until they are partially cooked. Drain the water and let the potatoes cool enough so you can touch them.
  2. Melt the butter in a small bowl, stir in the chives and garlic salt. Brush some of the butter mixture on top of each of the cut, flat side of each potato. Place each potato with the buttered side down onto the grill. Grill for about 3-4 minutes until the potatoes are browned, flip and grill the bottoms (you can brush some additional butter if desired) for another 5 minutes or so until the potatoes are cooked thoroughly.

    Ooh, I love house shopping, but it’s scary when you only have a short time. You’ll find something soon! That’s a good looking dinner, and the marinade sounds like a must try!

      Thanks, Meghan!! I like house hunting too, but the time constraint definitely lessens the fun factor!

    I’m sorry the house hunting didn’t go too well. I love house hunting but at the same time, I hate, HATE moving. And I so would not give up my king size bed neither.

    The grilled steak looks like an amazing dinner to wash away the stresses. I love grilled steak and the potatoes look amazing too.

      I hate moving too! All that packing and cleaning and then more cleaning and unpacking at the new place! Ugh!

    king size beds are totally so glorious!! i’m jealous, we don’t have one right now cause we have two new bed sets from our single days so we’re using those until we save up a little and invest in an awesome king bed. i’m sure you’ll find the perfect house in due time! in the meantime, this dinner of steak and butter chive potatoes sounds SO good. it seems like the perfect way to bid adieu to summer!

      Oh girl, once you go king, you will never go back! We bought our king right after we got married with some of the money we got from the wedding. It was one of our favorite gifts! :)

    Your dinner looks so beautiful. Your Husband is a lucky man!!! I made my Husband salad last night! lol He wasn’t to thrilled about that, but would have loved your meal! By the way you really take such gorgeous pictures. I need to learn how to do that.

    • Stephanie replied: — August 30th, 2012 @ 12:12 am

      Aw, thanks, Jen! Getting a better camera is really what helped me out the most, but I still have a lot to learn!

    There is no way I would give up my king size bed, either. It’s so roomy and comfy. I just couldn’t do it, and I don’t blame you for not being able to do it.

    This dinner looks amazing… especially those potatoes. Happy house hunting!

      Glad you agree, Jennie! We get annoyed when we have to sleep in a queen! lol

    Whoa, what a meal! That looks SO mouthwatering, Stephanie. Best of luck with house shopping! It’s a ton of fun but also a bit stressful. Don’t worry, you will find the one!

    • Stephanie replied: — August 30th, 2012 @ 12:58 am

      Thank you, Georgia!! It is stressful, but it will be nice when we are all settled!

    You know, I had my tri-tip menu all planned out for Saturday, and then I read this! Looks as if we may be having flank steak now instead. That plate looks too beautiful to pass up!

    I know how you feel! I just moved in April and one of the places I looked at wouldn’t fit pretty much any of my furniture!

    Moving can be stressful but at the same time it’s one of rare event once we get old. I used to move a lot when I was student, but now I’m way too lazy to move with all the stuff including kids’ stuff. Hope everything will work out for you! Your husband must be so happy having this when you return. :) I have to make this butter chive grilled potatoes. Sounds awesome, and goes well with my husband’s bbq!

    We love grilling still here in AZ. So you totally need to move to my neighborhood! How cool would that be!? Check out the west valley, it’s so much more laid back over here! :)

    I’m not a big red meat eater, but I definitely make an exception for flank steak. Love the looks of this dinner! You’ll find a house you love at the right time…things always seem to happen that way!

    I’m glad that you’re back safely. I know what you mean about moving and looking at the size of your furniture. We are going to be moving soon and I want to have all of our stuff shipped (it’s all in storage) but the area where we are moving as notoriously small bedrooms (and I miss my big, fluffy, American style bed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) So this is totally one of my favorite meals: steak, potatoes and corn. I love the butter too! Thanks, now I’m totally craving this :)
