What is Flank Steak
Flank steak is a type of meat that comes from the lower abdominal area of a cow. It is a long, thin strip of meat that is usually cooked quickly using methods such as grilling or stir-frying.
It is a leaner cut of meat, which means that it has less fat content than other types of steak. However, flank steak can also be tougher than other cuts of beef, so it is important to cook it properly.
When cooked correctly, flank steak can be very juicy and flavorful. One common way to prepare flank steak is to grill it over high heat. This helps to sear the outside of the steak, while keeping the inside juicy.
Another option is to cook flank steak in a pan on the stovetop. This method allows you to control the level of heat, ensuring that the steak is cooked evenly.
No matter how you choose to prepare it, flank steak makes a delicious and satisfying meal.

Honey has been used as a natural sweetener and medicinal remedy for centuries.
Made by bees from the nectar of flowers, honey is a source of fructose, glucose, and minerals such as iron, zinc, potassium, and calcium. It also contains small amounts of vitamins B6 and C.
Unlike sugar, honey is not entirely stripped of its nutritional value during the processing.
Ground coriander is a powder made from dried and ground coriander seeds. It is commonly used as a spice in Indian and Middle Eastern cuisine.
Ground coriander has a warm, earthy flavor with hints of citrus.
It can be used to flavor meat dishes, curries, and vegetables. When used sparingly, it can also be used as a finishing spice for baked goods and desserts.
Ground coriander should be stored in a cool, dark place to preserve its flavor.
It can be added to dishes at any stage of cooking, but it is best added towards the end of cooking so that its flavor is not lost.
