This Flank Steak Oven Recipeis so easy and perfect for busyweeknights. An affordable flank steak is portioned and cookedquickly in a traditional cast iron pan and elevated torestaurantquality with a quick and delicious garlic buttersauce.

This flank steak recipe starts with a 2 pound flank steak. I usually purchase mine from Costco in a two pack and freeze the second flank steak to use in my other flank steak recipesSheet Pan Steak Fajita Recipe or Grilled Carne Asada.

Flank Steak Oven Recipe

This is a super easy flank steak recipe seared on the stove top and cooked in the oven. A flavor packed garlic butter sauce takes this flank steak from basic to restaurant quality.

This would be great served with:

  • Instant Pot Mashed Potatoes
  • Instant Pot Mac and Cheese
  • Oven Roasted Potato Wedges
  • Oven Roasted Broccoli
  • Cheesy Roasted Asparagus

How to Cook Flank Steak

Start by cutting the flank steak into four equal portions. This is a great way to serve an inexpensive steak dinner, and it cooks so quickly it’s perfect even on a busy weeknight!

Cast Iron Skillet Steak

For this recipe, use a good old-fashioned cast iron pan. Sear the seasoned flank steaks quickly on both sides, then transfer them to the oven for a very short amount of time to finish cooking. Finally, while the steaks are resting, whip up a delicious pan sauce that will take the steak from simple to restaurant style.

These steaks will cook very quickly, in just a matter of minutes depending on thickness.

Once the steaks have rested, slice against the grain before serving for a truly tender skillet flank steak. Spoon garlic butter sauce over steaks before serving.

    I hate when people rate a recipe but haven’t tried it yet. That being said, I did try this recipe and I loved it. I’m grill-less and have been attempting stovetop/oven recipes for steak with much failure. This has been the first one that has successfully turned out and was delicious to boot. So simple and so good. Awesome recipe!

      Omg Susan, I couldn’t agree more!! I haaaaaaate scrolling through the comments looking for helpful hints or advice…and I find that most of the “ratings” aren’t true at all b/c they haven’t tried it yet. Whyyyyy RATE a recipe you’ve never tasted?! Anyways…. I made this tonight and it was delicious!! So quick and easy, the garlic butter sauce definitely takes it to a restaurant quality recipe. We have no leftovers lol

    Great recipe. I like my steak cooked closer to well done so I had to cook 20 minutes in the oven. Very tender and flavorful.

    Wow! This was the best flank steak I’ve ever had or made! I was surprised by the white wine instead of red but the bright acidity was perfect with the butter and garlic! Thank you! This will be a staple at our house!

    I made this tonight. I didn’t have any dry white wine. So I just omitted that ingredient. Will definitely make sure I have some next time. However, even without the wine this was a nice easy recipe that the entire family enjoyed. Will make again.

    This was very delicious. It is important to make sure the steak is an even width. Mine did not cook in the time given but once I got it cooked it was so yummy. I’ve never had a flank steak turn out this good. It’s usually very tough.

    This was the best flank steak I’ve ever made! My kids are hit or miss with steak as it sometimes can come out tough and this was so tender and juicy! I subbed rose wine and cilantro as that was what we had on hand and it was delicious. I was second guessing the 3/4 cup of wine so added a bit less, still worked. This will be a go to recipe for sure!

    Made this recipe and it was easy and delicious. I don’t have a lot of experience cooking red meat so it usually doesn’t come out that great when I do but I trusted the process and it was the best flank steak I’ve made. Everyone enjoyed it!
    This will be a regular dish!
