Located near the belly of the cow, flank steak is juicy and flavorful, though not known for its tenderness. The citrus marinade pairs perfectly with the flank cut because the acid lends itself well to tenderizing the meat and imparting a sweet flavor. Serve it thinly sliced over simply grilled vegetables for an easy, great-tasting meal.
