Braised Cuban Flank Steak

Here’s a savory recipe that you simply must try! Flank steak is a lean cut of beef, one that is encouraged in fat loss programs, however it can tend to be tough or dry when grilled. Not so with this recipe!

By braising lean flank steak in an amazing blend of spices and veggies, this recipe creates a tender, fall-apart steak experience that’s oh-so-enjoyable. If you’re a fan of braised short ribs then you’ll seriously love this recipe. Enjoy!
