I love flank steak. It is quick, tasty, and one of the cheaper cuts of steak. My brother endorsed this meal stating “I normally don’t like steak because it doesn’t have much flavor but this sure does!” And the leftovers will be a tasty lunch with the Southwestern Quinoa Salad with Lemon Vinaigrette I also prepared.
Chipotle-Rubbed Flank Steak with Lime Butter
- 4 tbsp unsalted butter, softened
- 1 small garlic clove, microplaned
- 1/4 tsp finely grated zest
- 1 tbsp fresh juice
- Kosher salt
- 1 1/2 tsp sweet paprika
- 1 1/2 tsp ground cumin
- 1 chipotle pepper with adobo sauce
- 1 (2lb) flank steak
In a small bowl, combine the butter with the garlic, lime zest and juice. Salt to taste.
Finely mince the chipotle pepper. Rub 1/2 of the paprika, cumin, and chipotle pepper into each side of the steak. Grill steak to desired donennes. Slice against the grain. Top your slices with the lime butter. Enjoy!

What a nice combination of spices…..and I do love lime zest!
It was one of the better dishes I have fixed recently. The lime butter is divine. I can’t wait to use it on corn in the summertime.

I like this cut too, this looks great! c
I like that it is so versitile. And just as tender if you cut it right.
I am so hungry looking at this flank steak.
