Balsamic and Rosemary Grilled Flank Steak with Caramelized Onions and Gorgonzola

Fresh rosemary, caramelized onions and crumbled Gorgonzola highlight this flank steak. You only need to marinate it one to two hours to get the flavor benefits. Don’t marinate it overnight like you do with some flank steak recipe as the balsamic vinegar tends to make the meat tough if marinated too long.

You can caramelize the onions a few hours ahead of serving so all you have to do at the last minute is grill the flank steak.
