{Gluten and Dairy Free} Flank Steak with Tomato and Corn Salsa

I bet you have noticed by now that I love, love, LOVE Skinny Taste.  Her recipes aren't gluten and dairy free per se, but they often end up naturally gluten and dairy free. She does it again with this amazing recipe. There is nothing like a perfectly cooked steak with some veggies. I have been working on my steak skills this last year.  I find that marinating it for hours if possible, seasoning it will, and turning it regularly (every couple of minutes) over medium high heat are the secret. I like to give it a good sear on all sides turning regularly. Look at this great graphic below to help figure out when it's done! A thermometer is always helpful, too! Then letting it rest for 10 minutes is key. If you cut it too soon the delicious juices run out.
