    The 35 BEST Ways to Cook Flank Steak

    This amazing collection of easy ways to cook Flank Steak has so many different flavorful dishes and cooking methods. We love this easy gorgonzola steak skillet:


    • 1.5 flank steak
    • 12 oz portobello mushrooms, sliced
    • 4 oz gorgonzola cheese
    • 4 cloves garlic, sliced
    • 2 Tbsp oil
    • 6 Tbsp butter
    • 1.5 c heavy cream (or half and half)
    • 2 Tbsp parsley, divided
    • Salt and pepper to taste


    1. Heat a large skillet (we recommend cast iron) over medium high heat. Once hot, add in oil.
    2. Generously season steak with salt and freshly cracked black pepper. Add to hot pan and sear 3-4 minutes per side. Remove to a plate and cover with aluminum foil.
    3. Reduce heat to mediums. Add butter to the pan and, once melted, add in mushrooms. Cook until they are tender and remove to a plate.
    4. Add in garlic and stir for a minute.
    5. Slowly stir in the cream, deglazing the pan. Add in gorgonzola. Simmer on low until the cheese melts into the sauce.
    6. Thinly slice the steak against the grain, then stir into the sauce along with the mushrooms and half of the parsley. Heat for a minute or two.
    7. When serving, garnish with remaining parsley.
