If you’re looking for a quick and delicious way to cook a flank steak, the Ninja Foodi Grill is an excellent option. This versatile appliance allows you to grill, air fry, bake, roast, and dehydrate all in one. Here’s how to cook a perfect flank steak on your Ninja Foodi Grill:
– 1 flank steak
– 1 tablespoon olive oil
– 1 teaspoon salt
– 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
– Optional: garlic powder, onion powder, or other seasonings of your choice
Step 1: Preheat the Ninja Foodi Grill
Turn on your Ninja Foodi Grill and set it to the grill function. Preheat it for about 10 minutes with the lid closed.
Step 2: Prepare the Flank Steak
While the grill is heating up, prepare your flank steak. Rub it with olive oil and season it with salt and black pepper. You can also add other seasonings if you like.
Step 3: Place the Flank Steak on the Grill
Once the grill is preheated, place the flank steak on it. Close the lid and cook for about 6 minutes.
For more flavor and tenderness, you can marinate your flank steak before grilling it. Simply mix together some olive oil, soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, minced garlic, and any other seasonings of your choice in a bowl.
Place the flank steak in a resealable bag or container and pour in the marinade. Let it marinate for at least an hour or up to overnight in the refrigerator.
Step 4: Flip and Cook Some More
After 6 minutes of cooking on one side, flip the flank steak over using tongs. Close the lid and cook for another 6 minutes.
Step 5: Check for Doneness
After a total of 12 minutes of cooking, check the internal temperature of the flank steak with a meat thermometer. For medium-rare, it should be around 130°F to 135°F. For medium, it should be around 140°F to 145°F.
Let the flank steak rest for a few minutes after you take it off the grill before slicing it. This allows the juices to redistribute and keeps the meat tender.
Step 6: Slice and Serve
Once the flank steak reaches your desired doneness, take it off the grill and let it rest for a few minutes. Then, slice it against the grain into thin strips. Serve and enjoy!
