We are deep into grilling season, and you can’t beat this flame-licked Flank Steak with Ancient Grains and Zhoug Sauce to win over a crowd. Organic grass-fed flank steak is a smart option for serving a hungry gathering because you just have to grill one piece of beef rather than several smaller cuts. Balsamic vinegar adds bold flavor to the marinade. Can’t find freekeh? Cook up some farro or spelt instead.
Freek-ing for zhoug
Originating in Yemen, zhoug is a bright and fiery herb sauce that is blowing up on social media and offers the perfect counterpoint to the beef and smoky freekeh. Both the zhoug and freekeh can be prepared a couple of days in advance.
