Recipe byKristen McCaffrey of Slender Kitchen
Serves: 4
Prep Time: 1 hour Cook Time: 10 mins. Total Time: 1 hour 10 mins


  • 1 lb. lean flank steak
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil, divided
  • 4 tbsp. balsamic vinegar, divided
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tsp. dried rosemary
  • 1 tsp. dried oregano
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, chopped
  • 1/4 cup red onion, diced
  • 2 tbsp fresh basil, chopped


  1. Pierce steak all over with a fork to help tenderize it. Cover with half the olive oil, half the balsamic vinegar, garlic, rosemary, oregano, salt, and pepper to taste. Marinate for at least 1 hour or overnight.
  2. When ready to serve, toss together the red onion, tomatoes, basil, remaining olive oil, remaining vinegar, and garlic. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Meanwhile, toss together the red onion, tomatoes, basil, olive oil, vinegar, and garlic. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Grill or broil the steaks to your liking. I cook mine for about 4-6 minutes on each side. To broil, cover a broiler pan with foil. Remove the steak from marinade, letting excess drip off. Place the steak in the middle of the rack and cook for 4-6 minutes per side for medium. When you flip the steak, add the tomatoes to the pan as well.
  5. Let rest for 5 minutes and then thinly slice against the grain and top with tomato salad.
