What Is Flank Steak?

Flank steak is a long odd looking piece of meat. It comes from the bottom abdomen of the cow, so it contains a lot of muscle. Flank steak has a lot of beefy flavor, but it can tend to be tough. That’s why cooking it in your Instant Pot is the perfect way to cook it.

How To Slice Flank Steak Correctly?

The most important thing to remember when cutting flank steak is to cut against the grain. You will see long strands of tough fibers running through the meat, and that is the grain.

To cut against the grain, you will cut crosswise and sever the fibers instead of cutting along them. This will make the meat easier to chew.
