Lemon Garlic Butter Flank Steak with Mushrooms

I just got home from an amazing conference this weekend in Texas.  We had a blast while we were there and hit up all of the amazing BBQ places while we were there.  The food was so good and worth standing in line for over an hour to get.  Brisket, ribs, and all of the delicious meats were smoked to perfection.  Texas has the best BBQ and I already want to take my hubby back!

Right before I left for Texas, I made this skillet flank steak.  OH MY GOSH!  This was easily one of the most delicious steak that we have had.  The flavor was seriously off of the charts.  My keto loving husband couldn’t believe how good this turned out.  So tender and the lemon garlic butter flavor is unforgettable!

I marinade my flank steak before cooking and it is a total MUST!  It helps to infuse the steak with amazing flavor and help to tenderize it before you cook it in the skillet.

How long do you cook flank steak?

Add some olive oil to your skillet and cook on each side for 3-4 minutes.  You can cook the steak until medium rare.  (130-135 degrees.)  Let rest for 10 minutes and slice against the grain.

How do you cut against the grain?

It is not just the cut of meat that determines how tender it is, it is also how you cut it.  Find the direction of the grain (which way the muscle fibers are aligned), then slice across the grain rather than parallel with it.

This meal comes together quickly and easily and is especially amazing topped with the lemon garlic butter mushrooms.  It is the perfect pairing to this tender and juicy steak!

    1. I like to use skinnytaste.com or myfitnesspal.com for any nutritional questions. Hope you can find the answers you are looking for there. Thank you so much for following along with me! XOXO

  1. Hi Alyssa
    Can you please add the nutritional information for your recipes, it helps those of us on controlled diets
    Also do you have many gluten free options.

  2. I made this for dinner tonight. It was a delicious success! Everyone, little kids included, loved the steak and mushrooms. Paired it with steamed broccoli and mashed potatoes. Definitely adding this to our menu in the future. Oh and the best steak marinade, is the BEST!

  3. What exactly is the marinade recipe as shown in video for this lemon butter garlic flank steak with mushrooms?? I can’t find the measurements anywhere

  4. 2 stars
    I totally messed this recipe up because I couldn’t find the marinade recipe. Then I saw someone else ask after the fact. Might help if the marinade recipe was here but was still pretty good..

  5. Is there anything I could replace the mushrooms with? I would really like to cook this for my wife but she has an allergy to mushrooms. Worst case I could just leave them out.

  6. 5 stars
    I made this last night and the whole family loved it! I also roasted some red-skinned potatoes then added them to the skillet in the end with the mushrooms, steak and sauce.
    Not a scrap left! We will be making this again for sure!

    Looks great but what if, what IF, I was to marinate the steak way longer than 30 minutes, say, overnight and I added sprigs of fresh thyme? I suppose it would be called an experiment.. anyway..looks great!

  8. 5 stars
    I made this before and it’s amazing! But there used to be a link for just the marinade and now I don’t see it…can someone help please?

  9. I agree with incorporating the marinade link into the reciepe. I almost mistaked the ingredients to cook the flank steak as the marinade. I re-read through the post again to make sure I didn’t miss it and never saw it. After reading the comments I found it but it would have been a lot faster for me to have a link within the recipe. I do appreciate you taking the time to share your recipe. It was a hit!
