Flank Steak with Bacon Balsamic Sauce & Sauteed Kale


This was a totally Google inspired meal. I had very limited ingredients in my refrigerator as I'm in dyer need for a trip to the grocery store. I pretty much google searched available ingredients and chose my recipe accordingly! I found this great bacon balsamic glaze on the Food Network (Robin Miller) and the sauteed kale recipe from Bobby Flay (also Food Network). It was delicious! With very minimal ingredients I had a spectacular feast! Yum... hope you enjoy.

Flank Steak Recipe:
2 lbs. flank steak
fresh ground pepper
sea salt
4 slices bacon, chopped
1/2 C balsamic vinegar
1/2 C beef broth
2 T parsley flakes
1 tsp. arrowroot powder

Preheat grill pan or grill. Season flank steak with pepper and sea salt. Grill steak for about 5 minutes on each side. While steak is cooking, add bacon to skillet over medium heat and cook until crisp. Add balsamic vinegar and cook for about 5 minutes, until liquid reduces. Mix arrowroot powder with beef broth and add to skillet. Add parsley flakes. Slowly bring to a boil and then reduce heat for about 2-4 minute, until sauce thickens. Pour over sliced flank steak and enjoy!

Sauteed Kale:

About 1 lb kale, coarsely chopped
1 T olive oil
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 small shallot, minced
2 T balsamic vinegar
1/2 c beef broth

Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat and saute garlic and shallots until soft (careful not to burn). Add broth and kale and toss really well. Cover and cook for about 5 minutes, until liquid evaporates. Add balsamic vinegar. Toss well and serve!
