Bachan’s Smoked Flank Steak

Flank steak is such a great cut of beef to make. It is so simple to make, and as long as you cut it right and don’t overcook it, your steak will be super tender. The Bachan’s is a great way to marinate things too. It adds a ton of great flavor without overpowering the meat, and bonus points for ZERO measuring or worry.

Flank steak is an excellent choice for smoking due to its unique characteristics and flavor profile. This cut of beef, known for its lean texture and rich, beefy flavor, absorbs the smoke exceptionally well. Its thinness allows it to take on the flavors of the smoke and any marinade you choose to use, enhancing the taste further. Moreover, flank steak’s grainy structure makes it ideal for taking in smoke, which leads to a more pronounced smoky flavor as compared to other cuts.

Additionally, smoking flank steak can make it incredibly tender and juicy. The slow, low-heat process of smoking breaks down the connective tissues in the meat, resulting in a mouthwateringly tender steak that’s easy to chew. It’s also versatile and works well with various wood types used in smoking, allowing you to experiment with different flavors. Whether you’re a fan of mild woods like apple and cherry or prefer stronger options like hickory or mesquite, flank steak can handle them all, making it a great canvas for your smoking adventures.
