Flank Steak With Tomatoes, Red Onion and Balsamic

This summer grilled steak recipe is fresh and flavorful and a great way to enjoy summer tomatoes. The tomatoes and red onions are seasoned with salt, pepper, balsamic vinegar, and olive oil and topped with whatever combo of fresh herbs you have on hand, like basil and oregano.

How long do you cook steak on the grill?

Turn the grill on high heat and cook the steak for about seven minutes on each side for a medium-rare steak. The internal temperature should be 135 degrees, and for a medium steak with a warm pink center, cook it to 145 degrees. After you pull the steak off the grill, let it rest for about five minutes before slicing.

What to Serve with Grilled Steak

This grilled flank steak would be delicious with a side of grilled lemon-parsley potatoes and asparagus. Some other side dish options are this Grilled Corn Salad with Feta, Grilled Vegetable Orzo Pasta Salad, and Buttermilk Mashed Potatoes. You could also serve the steak and tomatoes as a salad over mixed greens or arugula.

Variations:

  • Swap the balsamic vinegar with red wine vinegar.
  • Switch out the red onion for shallot.
  • Add avocado to the tomato topping.
  • If you can’t find flank steak or London broil, use flat iron steak.
  • Serve the tomato mixture over chicken or salmon.
  • If you don’t have an outdoor grill, you can use your broiler or purchase an indoor grill pan (this is the one I use).

  1. I made this the other night with a strip steak.   Sliced it thin and topped it with the tomato mixture.   Delicious!  Tonight I make the tomato mixture and put it on grilled chicken.  Yum!   I love flank steak, and the next time I do flank steak, I will be making this recipe.  Thank you!

  2. How much salt goes on the steak and how much in the tomatoes?

  3. I plan to try this with venison backstrap or venison sirloin steak later this week. Got a freezer full of venison, and this just might work. Any suggestions on adjustments for wild game?

  4. The instructions say “Combine onions, olive oil, balsamic, salt and pepper. Let onions sit a few minutes with the salt and balsamic to mellow a bit. . . ” This confused me: Since the onions, salt and balsamic have already been combined with the olive oil and pepper, how can they “mellow” without them? Did you mean to say “Let the mixture sit a bit?”

  5. Fantastic! Served with cauliflower mash and a delicious red wine.

  6. Very good. I served it in top of greens. I had extra tomato mixture so I had that as a side with my lunch the next day.

  7. We are not really fans of balsamic vinegar. Do you have a suggestion for a substitute.

  8. Delicious! One of my favorites!!

  9. I made this tonight and didn’t have a steak but used stew beef and cut it up fine and cooked it. I added fresh tomatoes and basil , rosemary parsley and oregano from the garden and purple onion, I served it with brown rice and quinoa . It was fresh and amazing . Will make this again with steak next time. I was afraid the balsamic vinegar would overpower it but it did not,

  10. Has anyone made this with the London broil? Was it’s tough?

  11. What is the difference between freestyle points and points? 

  12. Quick, easy and totally delicious!

  13. I add the extra step of cooking the steak in the Sous Vide for 36 hours. but the recipe is legit . The balsamic tomato & onion in the perfect accompaniment to the steak.

  14. Made this last night. DELISH. I had never thought to put that flavor combo on top of steak but it was so good. I served with your Bacon wrapped green beans. YUM!!
