Flank steak with lemon butter - Flankstek med citronsmör

FLANK STEAK WITH LEMON BUTTER
Flankstek med citronsmör

Flank steak is a tender, juicy meat, quick and easy to cook. The meat is marinated, fried and served with lemon butter, but don’t cook for too long or it might get dry.

4 servings

1 1/3 lbs flank steak
salt, pepper

Marinade:
4 tbsps cooking oil
4 tbsps fresh lemon juice
3 tbsps Chinese soy sauce
2 crushed garlic cloves
1 tbsp brown sugar
1 tsp savory (if that’s the right word)

Lemon butter:
1 ¾ oz butter or margarine
2 to 3 tbsps fresh lemon juice
good 1/3 cup finely chopped parsley
scant ¼ cup finely chopped cress
salt, pepper

Decoration:
chopped parsley

 
Blend together the ingredients for the marinade. Put the meat in a dish and pour the marinade on top. Turn the meat a couple of times, then cover the dish and marinate in the fridge for at least 4 hours. Turn it over once while marinating.

Transfer the flank steak to an oven-proof dish, brush with marinade and sprinkle with some salt and pepper. Put the meat in the middle of the oven at 200 to 225C/gasmark 6 to 7, for 8 minutes on each side if you want the meat pink. Add approx 10 minutes if you want the meat well done.

Stir the fat until smooth and blend in lemon juice, parsley, cress, salt and pepper. Shape to a roll, wrap it up in plastic foil and leave in the fridge to set. Cut the meat in slices, decorate with parsley and serve slices of the lemon butter with the meat.

Enjoy!
