Did you know?

Flank steak is a lean, boneless meat that’s full of flavor and is typically used in Asian style dishes. The lean meat is reasonably low in calories when compared to other beef cuts. We like to use it as a part of our healthy spinach salad recipes to get extra protein for a relatively low amount of calories!
