  • 1 flatiron steak, about 1 pound
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons red wine, preferably a cabernet or merlot
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons pomegranate juice
  • 2 teaspoons sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper


  1. Place the steak in a plastic bag or bowl with the remaining ingredients. Allow the steak to marinate for 3 hours or overnight in the refrigerator. After marinating, remove from the refrigerator for half an hour.
  2. Five minutes before cooking, heat the grill or a sauté pan to medium-high heat. If using a sauté pan, add about 1 tablespoon olive oil to the pan.
  3. Put the flatiron steak on the grill or in the pan. Cook for about 5 minutes per side, until well browned on the exterior and the interior temperature reaches 130 degrees F for rare, 135 for medium-rare, and 140 for well done.
  4. Remove from heat, rest, covered, on a plate for 5 minutes, and then slice steak across the grain.
