What's For Dinner? Week 17: Grilled Balsamic Flank Steak

Grilled Balsamic Flank Steak

We don't eat steak a lot, so this was a special treat!

The flavor  of the meat was really great (I marinated it for a few hours).  I have never grilled flank steak before, and I was a little nervous about making sure it was cooked enough, but not too much.  Kris likes his steak medium, and while I have spent much of my life preferring for mine to be medium rare, I have changed my ways and also prefer the meat to be closer to medium.  I managed to get it pretty close to that, and it turned out quite yummy.  I also added some sauteed mushrooms, as both Kris and I love mushrooms....and it turns out that Meredith does as well!
