  • 1.5- to 2- pound flank steak
  • 2-3 Tablespoons Mexican/taco seasoning rub of your choice. We prefer the StyleBlueprint homemade taco seasoning mix.
  • Salt if needed our taco seasoning mix does not contain salt, so we add 1.5 Tablespoons kosher salt to our steak


  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  • Cover steak with seasoning mix and salt, rubbing in well.
  • Let sit at room temperature for at least 30 minutes.
  • Once the oven is hot, place a skillet that's large enough to hold flank steak in the oven for 30 minutes. This heats the skillet completely.
  • Place steak in the skillet to cook. It's fine if it comes up the interior sides; it just can't spill over.
  • Cook for 5 minutes and flip.
  • Cook an additional 4 minutes.
  • Remove skillet from oven and place on heat-proof surface.
  • Cover with foil for 10 minutes.
  • Slice thinly across the grain.
