1 hanger steak, tendon removed; should weigh 1 to 1 1/2 pounds

1/3 cup olive oil

1/4 cup red wine vinegar

1 teaspoon kosher salt

1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


Up to one day but at least 4 hours in advance, marinate the steak in the oil, vinegar, salt, and pepper. Lots of people like to do this in a resealable plastic bag, but I am stingy with bags and so use a dish instead. Leave the marinating steak in the refrigerator and turn it over every once in a while. Preheat the broiler and prepare a rack just a few inches away from the heat source. Line a rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil. Hold the steak up over the marinating dish and wipe excess marinade off with your hand; you just don't want it to be swimming in oil, so you don't need to dry it off completely. Lay the steak on the lined baking sheet and broil 4 minutes per side. Allow the steak to rest while you prepare the rest of dinner and then slice very thin across the grain.
