Enjoy a tasty and delicious meal with your family that can be prepared in just under 30 minutes. Before grilling the flank steak, use a knife to remove as much as the tough outer slivery skin as you can. This outer portion can become chewy, offering no flavor to the meat. Because flank steak is so lean, you'll want to be sure not to let it overcook. When cutting the flank steak, cut against the grain to make it easier to chew. Serve these sandwiches with sweet potato fries or cole slaw.
