A steak dinner served with a flavorful Chipotle Herb sauce.

Chipotle-Herb Flank Steak on Taste and TellPhoto Updated March 2014




Originally published April 22, 2009 – My daughter has decided that she loves steak, so I’ve been taking opportunities lately to re-try recipes that I know she will love. I remade this one, and it was a hit! The Chipotle-Herb Butter was a little too spicy for the kids, but that didn’t stop Abbi from downing more than her fair share of steak. This one is one that I should have re-made sooner, and will be remaking again soon!!

What I need is the energy of a 3 year old…

My sister and her husband are out of town, so I took a turn yesterday watching her kids. She has 3-year old twin boys that I picked up from school at 11:30, and had a few hours to spend with them alone until the other kids came home from school. Wow – I really admire my sister now. Those boys are so full of energy, I could barely keep up!

I came home that evening exhausted. I’m used to just taking care of one needy almost-3-month-old, but throwing in those 2 three year olds really put me to the test!

But even though I don’t have that kind of energy, I still have the energy to throw together a meal like this – especially since all it takes is half an hour! This was delicious, healthy, and easy – what more can you ask for?

UPDATE – You can find the recipe for the Cilantro Lime Rice HERE.

Chipotle-Herb Flank Steak

A steak dinner served with a flavorful Chipotle Herb sauce.

Ingredients

  • 1 to 1 1/2 lbs flank steak
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1 chipotle in adobo, seeds removed and minced, plus 1 tablespoon of the adobo sauce
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped cilantro

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350F. Heat a grill pan on the stove over medium-high heat for 5 minutes.
  2. Brush half of the oil on one side of the steak. Sprinkle generously with salt and pepper. Place oiled side down on the hot grill. Brush the remaining oil on the other side of the steak and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cook for about 4 minutes on each side, until a crust has formed and you can see the grill marks.
  3. Transfer the steak to the oven and cook until medium-rare, 5-7 minutes. Let sit 5 minutes before slicing.
  4. While the steak is cooking, combine the butter, chipotle, lime juice and cilantro .
  5. Just before serving, microwave the the butter for 20 seconds, until just melted. Pour the butter over thin slices of the steak to serve.

    Little boys are full of energy, I have a brother 12 years younger than I am and boy…he was always running around! :)

    Both the rice and steak sound like they’re full of flavor. I really want to try that rice!

  6. Ashley says:

    This sounds awesome! And I totally agree…I can get tired just WATCHING a little kid run around ;)

  7. Patsyk says:

    I've got boys who are 16 months apart… so, I can relate to the need for energy! They are a little older (5 1/2 & 7), but they can still exhaust me some days!

    That meal is right up my alley (except the cilantro), and I love that it's quick to prepare!

  14. Andrew & Carlene Wood says:

    Yum, this looks delicious!! I have noticed that a few of your recipes use the chipotle chile and adobo sauce. I bought a can and had several left over, how do you save your extras? I froze mine because I didn’t know how long they keep in the fridge? Any suggestions?

  20. Chipotle and cardamom are my two ‘new’ favorite flavors right now. Of course I subscribe to that ol’ line butter makes everything better——unfortunately. Laughing. I am a working woman, so quick is often my driver when analyzing a recipe. I moderately surprised that this is an older recipe, since chipotle seems to be more recently in the spotlight. Hey hang in there with your double blessings!

  21. Chels R. says:

    That looks insanely good! I’ve never made or eaten flank steak, but I was eyeing it at the grocery store a few weeks ago. Pinning this one!

  22. What a fantastic recipe, I’m definitely going to be trying this soon, and I love how you’re making and re-making recipes your daughter loves, that’s super sweet!

  23. Ruth says:

    I purée the chipotle peppers and sauce and freeze in tablespoon portions (wrapped in plastic and then in a freezer bag). That way I don’t waste the rest of the can. I noticed people were asking so I thought I’d share the tip.
