"This is one of my mother's best recipes from my childhood. Flank steak was cheap back then, so feel free to substitute chuck steak or flap meat. The ingredients are simple but very flavorful. It's excellent with buttered noodles or white beans, and a green vegetable such as broccoli or asparagus." — Dianemwj

beef flank steak

Di, this was simply to die for (no pun intended!)I had to use a bit of powdered cloves due to what I had on hand, and I wanted to serve it OVER the buttered egg noodles. There really wasn't quite enough sauce for that. I added 1/2 cup beef broth, and a pckg. of crimimi mushrooms to the pot.
Actually, the meat took more like 2 hours or so to cook... but it was well worth the wait.
Very tender, fall apart and delish over the egg noodles!
Great flavor, but next time I'll make sure to have enough chicken broth in the house!
In any event.... it's a definite addition to the "do again" file.
Not good at all. Sauce was boring and not the least bit flavorful. Might be a good starter recipe, but needs a lot of work. If you have an advanced palate, I would not recommend this dish.
***Personal attacks against my reviews are not welcome. I can not help if your dish was inedible. Stalking my page and saying that I gave a false review is incorrect. I tried a dish that I thought sounded wonderful, and given your "expert" rating, I had high expectations. Unfortunately,those expectations were not met. It looks like I wasn't the only one who was disappointed in this dish.***
Well Miss Diane, let me tell you that this was a hit with Drew and Ashley! I did add a few of my own herbs and spices but didn't have any cloves in the house. Nonetheless, both said the meat was so tender and full of flavor. Served this over wide egg noodles. Thanks hon!
I marinated this the night before with olive oil, lemon pepper seasoning, garlic powder, salt and cracked black pepper. I used only one clove. OMG, this turned out so moist and tender. Thanks for the post.
This is my new favorite recipe for flank steak! The meat was falling apart it was so tender. The flavors were wonderful together. I made this as written except I used a little more garlic than called for. Thanks, Diane, this is a keeper!
This was sooo good. I thickened the sauce at the end with a little cornstarch, but that's the only change. The flank steak came out tender and delicious. Thanks for the recipe!
Very quick and easy. My family loved it. I will be making it again.
A very easy recipe to follow, you can get other things done while it's cooking. My husband was quite surprised on how tender it came out. Got a great big hug and a kiss for this one.
