My "back porch" is my kitchen, my favorite room in the house. Come on in, the coffee is fresh, and I just made a pitcher of sweet tea. The cookies will be out in a minute. I have over 40 years of recipes to share with you, along with my opinion on everything. Oh my, you are right, it is cocktail time. What can I get you? Of course I can make you a Mint Julep! Stop by anytime, something is always cooking, and the back door is never locked.

Cilantro Flank Steak

Are you a cilantro lover? Either you are or you're not, no in the middle. I am. I even just love the smell of it. This would be a major hit for Father's Day, if he is a cilantro fan. Quick and Easy, and not expensive.

Cilantro Flank Steak
4-6 servings
print recipe

1 1/2 pounds flank steak
5 tablespoons olive oil, divided
1 1/2 teaspoons Montreal steak seasoning
1 1/2 cups firmly packed fresh cilantro leaves
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 teaspoon salt

Brush the steak with 1 tablespoons oil; sprinkle with seasoning.

Heat a cast-iron skillet or grill pan over medium-high heat; cook steak in pan to desired doneness. Three and a half minutes per side will get you rare. Judge from there, but do not cook it to well done.

Process cilantro, next 3 ingredients, and remaining 4 tablespoons oil in a food processor until smooth. Cut steak diagonally across the grain into thin slices. Serve sauce with steaks.


  1. I too love love love cilantro! I tell my family that it makes my mouth happy. Unfortunately none of them feels the same way. However, this steak sauce sounds like the perfect solution. They can have the steak with a different sauce.

  2. I'm a lover of it,, so is my husband andd wouldn't this be good for Father's Day,, yes indeedy,

  3. we have LOTS of cilantro in the garden..i am making fact, i just picked a bouquet of the stems that went to seed and flowered and have them on my nightstand...looks like queen annes lace....

  4. This is SO delicious! The guys were a bit stunned when they saw I'd put "green stuff" on their steaks, but one taste and they were hooked :)
