  1. Marinate the steak with garlic, olive oil, pepper and mustard. Leave in the fridge for 1 hour.
  2. Cook the unpeeled potatoes in boiling water for about 12 minutes and leave to cool. ‘Smash’ them by pressing lightly to crack the skin and then flatten them.
  3. Heat a frying pan; add olive oil and brown potatoes on both sides.
  4. For the salsa, mix diced tomatoes, onion, parsley, garlic and olive oil. Season with salt and pepper.
  5. Remove steaks from marinade and cook on a hot grill for 6 minutes on each side (for medium rare). Leave to rest for 5 minutes.
  6. Slice thinly and serve with potatoes and salsa.


  1. Flank steak becomes tough if cooked past medium.
  2. This cut is also perfect for slow cooking.
