    We keep the spice on medium to mild. You can always double the red pepper flakes if you want more heat.

  • Flank Steak Cuts:

    When slicing flank steak, be sure to follow the grain to ensure the most tender meat.

  • Reheating and Storage Instructions:

    Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. Reheat a small amount of oil in a skillet on the stove over medium heat until heated through.
