Welcome to Simple Fare, Fairly Simple. This is a place for me to post recipes of all kinds...along with other miscellaneous fodder from my so-called life here in the south. Who knows what you will find here. Could be anything from my husband...known as IT Guy...to my kids and beautiful grandbabies that are growing up way too fast right before my eyes. But...mostly this will be a place for food. I hope you'll see something you like and if you decide to try something from the list...leave me a comment and let me know!

Some of you may remember Jeff the Chef's Pork Tenderloin. Jeff gave me a bottle of his favorite marinade and I just got around to using it on some flat iron steak. Oh yum! Of course this marinade can be used on anything, but it was THE BOMB on this steak! You gotta try it!!! I don't have a grill so I used my grill pan on the stove-top and it was great. I'm sure an outdoor grill would be the way to go but ya' gotta work with what you have, right?

Marinated Flat Iron Steak

1 bottle Allegro marinade
1 - 2 pound flat iron steak

Place meat in a large zip-top bag or a shallow pan. Pour marinade over the steak, cover and place in the fridge for several hours. I just let mine sit from morning until dinnertime, turning it a few times throughout the day.

Heat a grill pan then pour in some olive oil. Remove steak from marinade and place in heated pan. Allow to cook 5 - 7 minutes per side. Let meat sit for about 10 minutes before slicing. Add the meat to a salad or serve with a side dish!

Here's all you need. This marinade is excellent!

Throw the steak in a bag then pour in the whole bottle of marinade. Let hang out overnight or at least all day in the fridge.

Then grill it. Either on your outdoor grill on your grill pan.

Let the meat rest for about 10 minutes before slicing then 
throw it on a salad or serve with some veggies. SO good!
