Broiled Flank Steak tends to be a chewy and grainy cut of meat if it isn’t cooked correctly. Marinating your meat in the refrigerator helps tenderize your steak. The Madeira sauce adds the flavors of your garlic, lemon and oil steep into your cut of meat. Adding the butter, flour mushrooms and consommé in a skillet for a few minutes also makes the meat more tender and broiling sears all those wonderful flavors together to give this dish a rich and savory taste.
