Cooking temperatures for steak

Cook your flank steak just the way you like it.

It does not take long to reach your medium temperature with flank steak.

Cooking it a little under is best, then when you add it back to the pan it will cook to the temperature you are wanting.

To gauge the perfect temperature, use a meat thermometer.

  • Rare: Temperature: 115°F; Remove when it reaches 110°F
  • Medium-Rare: Temperature: 125°F; Remove when it reaches 120°F
  • Medium: Temperature: 135°F; Remove when it reaches 130°F

Tips for cooking flank steak

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.

Flank steak only takes a few minutes per side to cook.

A meat thermometer is best when cooking steaks so you do not overdue your meat.

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!

  • Add some olive oil to your skillet and cook on each side for 3-4 minutes.  Y
  • You can cook the steak until medium (130-135 degrees.)  Let rest for 10 minutes and slice against the grain.
  • You can let the steak marinate for at least an hour or overnight before cooking. No longer than 24 hours though.
  • Cook steak on high heat for 1-2 minutes to sear on each side then turn down the heat to cook the inside.
  • Use a grill for cooking your flank steak, cook on high heat for 1 to 2 minutes then cook on a lower temperature burner until temperature reaches about medium.
  • If you are cooking for a many, simply double your marinade amount and add in the amount of meat that you are needing to make.
  • Garlic does not cook well on the meat. I like to scrape it off the best I can when searing the meat.
  • Drizzle some of the marinade on the meat for added flavoring.
  • Enjoy your flank steak with mashed potatoes, cauliflower or asparagus to make this a complete meal.

Storing lemon garlic butter flank steak

  • Making Ahead: make your marinade ahead of time with your flank steak. Your steak can marinate up to 24 hours. No longer.
  • Refrigerating: after your steak and mushrooms are completely cooled, add them to a ziplock bag or an airtight container and refrigerate for 5 to 7 days.
  • Freezing: if you are wanting to freeze your steak you will have to let the mushrooms go. They do not do well frozen and then warmed up. Let your steak cool completely and add to a ziplock bag or a tight sealed baggie. Store in the freezer for up to 1 month before reheating again. When ready to reheat place in the refrigerator over night to thaw completely.
  • Warming Up: place your steak on a pan over the stove top to reheat. Cook until warm stirring it occasionally. If you choose to microwave, place on a microwave safe dish and warm up in 1 to 2 minute increments not over heating so it doesn’t dry out.

    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!

  7. 4 stars
    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!
