Oregano and Garlic Flat Iron Steak

Oregano and Garlic Flat Iron Steak

Over the last few years, flat iron steak has become one of my favorite cuts of meat. It is relatively inexpensive, you can feed a family with one and the meat itself is so tender. I’ve cooked flat iron steak several ways like: Broiled with Herb Roasted Mushrooms, Grilled with Tomato Salad and, one of our personal faves, Grilled with Balsamic and Rosemary. And today, I am sharing with you another recipe that uses this favorite cut of mine: Oregano and Garlic Flat Iron Steak.

Yes, this is another grilled recipe. I’ve been grilling a lot lately. It has been so warm here it’s the only thing that I want to do. I’ve been trying to put everything I can on the grill, just to avoid warming the house. You see, the problem with it being hot in Seattle, is that it is never really hot in Seattle so no one has air conditioning for when it actually does get hot.

Seriously guys, my house was 85 degrees the other day.

Eighty. Five. Inside.

85 is fine when you are chilling on the beach. 85 is not fine when you are trying to go to sleep.

All this heat also makes me want dinners that are filling and light at the same time. I made this Oregano and Garlic Flat Iron Steak and served it along sideย a garden salad and this Summer Tomato Bruschetta. It was the perfect summer dinner.

Just a note! This recipeย does require a little bit of planning a head of time because the steak needs to marinate for at least 3 hours.

    What a great easy recipe! I love flat iron steak and have before it became so popular and the prices went up! Everyone needs to go back to skirt steak so we can make this recipe for less, haha.

  • Susan S. Bradley

    Simple and delicious. Just how I like my steak. Plus the oregano sounds sublime. :-)

  • I have never cooked flat iron steak, can you believe it? It sounds delicious. I should see if I can get my hands on some as I am not ever really sure what I can find at the farmer’s market.

    Also, 85? Eeks! We keep our house about 78 degrees during the day and at night I am a total whimp who loves my blankets so we go down to 70 degrees.

  • I love oregano, thanks for the idea to garnish!
