Yummo: Oil and Vinegar Flank Steak

I love EVOO so this pattern and recipe are perfect for this week.


  • 1 2- to 2 1/2-pound flank steak
  • 3 to 4 sprigs rosemary
  • 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons EVOO - Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Yields:4 servings


In a large food storage container, place the steak with the rosemary, vinegar, Worcestershire sauce and EVOO. Place into the refrigerator and marinate all day or overnight, turning occasionally.

To cook, remove the steak from the marinade and let the excess drip off. Coat the meat with 2 tablespoons of EVOO, heat a grill or grill pan to medium high then cook until brown and crisp, about 5 minutes per side. When the meat is done cooking take it off the grill and let it rest for about 10 minutes. Slice it thin and serve.

Doppelganger Decor: Sofia Entryway

AHH! We had our pre-dry wall inspection with the builder on Friday! All the electrical and plumbing is done! Next week, we SHOULD have drywall and the outside fitted with mesh for the stucco.

I have no idea what I want to do in our entry way of the new house BUT I love this room! I think I will take pieces of it to come up with the perfect entry way!
