Flat Iron Steak with Basil Aioli
This flat iron steak with basil aioli is a delicious weeknight meal, ready in about 25 minutes. This recipe can serve two if you're only having the steak and sauce, but it will serve four if you serve it with a few sides or a nice, large salad. I've been experimenting with sauces lately and discovered that I love aioli - it's rich and creamy deliciousness - and it's easy to make! Please see my note below on consuming raw eggs, before you make this recipe.
I got this flat iron steak at the farmer's market. I like buying my meat from the farmer's market or butcher where I know it will have been sustainably raised, grass fed, pasture raised, and organic. Here's a great source on understanding these terms.
We don't eat red meat that often, it's more of a special occasion dish. So when we do get it, it's important to cook it the very best way possible - here's a great resource for cooking steak.
This recipe can by made with any kind of steak you'd like - I just found some wonderful flat iron steak. This would work with flat steaks like flank or skirt just as easily!
