This has become our go-to flank steak recipe! The marinade is so easy and has just a few ingredients which give the flank steak incredible flavor.
The Tabasco Chipotle sauce is the SECRET INGREDIENT here and really amps up the natural flavors of the steak, adding rich and smoky flavor to every bite. Big thank you to Tabasco for sponsoring this recipe!
Watch How to Make Chipotle Flank Steak:
We took the Tabasco 10 Challenge! It’s a list of 10 ingredients curated by Matt Robinson:
1. TABASCO Chipotle Sauce
2. Flank Steak or Chicken Breast
3. Leafy Greens (Arugula, Watercress or Spinach)
5. Soft Cheese (Fontina, Blue Cheese or Burrata)
7. Stone Fruit (Peaches, Nectarines or Plums)
8. Grain (Quinoa, Barley or Couscous)
9. Citrus (Lemon, Lime and Oranges)
10. Herb (Basil, Mint, or Cilantro) !
The challenge was to come up with a recipe that uses any of those ingredients with the exception of salt, pepper or oil. The marinade we came up with is so simple and flavorful! This flank steak is delicious paired with cilantro lime rice (recipe below), scrumptious in tacos, and brilliant for fajitas! Squeeze some fresh lime juice over the top and serve. Is your mouth watering yet?
We used a generous amount of the Tabasco Chipotle Sauce. It adds more smoky rich flavor and the heat is so subtle after grilling that even our kids approved! I also served the steak with a splash of fresh lime juice and more of the Tabasco Chipotle Sauce (which I loved even more than my favorite steak sauce!).

Chipotle Flank Steak Recipe
- 2 lb flank steak
- 4 Tbsp Tabasco Chipotle Sauce plus more to serve
- 1/3 bunch cilantro about 1/2 cup loosely packed
- 1/3 cup green onion chopped
- 1/3 cup olive oil
- 1/2 tsp black pepper
- 1 Lime cut into wedges to serve
In the bowl of a blender or food processor, pulse together marinade ingredients: 1/2 cup cilantro, 1/4 cup chopped green onion, 1/3 cup olive oil, 4 Tbsp Tabasco Chipotle Sauce, 1/2 tsp black pepper. Blend until smooth.
Place steak in a non-reactive dish (glass or plastic) and cover all sides with marinade. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate 6 hours or preferably overnight. Remove from refrigerator 30 minutes prior to grilling.
Grill over Medium-high heat (450˚F) for 4 min per side for medium rare, or cook to desired doneness. To create the fancy grilling marks, rotate 45˚ after 2 minutes. Remove to a plate and let rest 10 to 15 minutes prior to cutting. Cut steak (against the grain) into thin strips and serve.
