Lemon Garlic Butter Steak

This recipe takes flank steak, and first infuses it with flavor via a luscious marinade. Then, it’s sauted to perfection with lemon and garlic. With long fibers, flank steak can’t simply be broiled like a T-bone. This combination of lemon-fresh marinade and cooking seasonings creates a tender, melt-in-your mouth dish.
Course Main Dish



  • 1/3 cup soy sauce
  • 1/3 cup Lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon Sriracha sauce
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 tablespoons Thyme chopped
  • 1 teaspoon Black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt

Lemon Garlic Butter Steak

  • 2 pounds flank steak
  • 5 tablespoons Butter
  • 3 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 pound sliced mushrooms
  • 1/4 cup white wine
  • 1 Lemon zest & juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 6 cups spinach chopped


  • Add all the marinade ingredients to a large ziplock bag. Shake to blend.
  • Add the flank steak, reseal, and allow it to marinade from 30 minutes to 4 hours or so.
  • When you are ready, remove the steak from the bag, and discard the bag and marinade.
  • Slice the flank steak into thin strips, going against the grain of the meat.
  • Add 2 tablespoons of the butter, the steak strips, and minced garlic to a large skillet. Add the lemon zest, and cook 2 minutes, until fragrant.
  • Continue to cook over a medium high setting, flipping the steak strips until done as desired, or 3 to 5 minutes per side.
  • Remove the steak and set aside on a platter for now.
  • Add the mushrooms to the skillet, and cook for about 2 to 3 minutes, until done. Set aside with the steak.
  • Add the white wine, lemon juice, and red pepper flakes to the pan, stirring up any pan juices into the sauce.
  • In a separate pan, as that is cooking, wilt the spinach, and remove from heat.
  • Cook for a minute or so, and then add the steak and mushrooms back in. Continue to simmer for 1 to 2 minutes to absorb the flavors.
  • Add the wilted spinach, and stir to combine, cooking for another minute or so to blend flavors. Serve hot.
