Fleika (Roumanian Garlic Steak)
A garlic lovers delight. Don't stint on the garlic or marinating time
- 1.5 lb piece of skirt steak, flank steak will work in a pinch but you'll lose some of the flavor
- Fresh ground pepper
- Kosher salt
- 2 tbl. Sweet paprika
- 8 FRESH garlic cloves chopped into dust, don't use garlic paste or minced garlic packed in oil if you want this to taste right
- 1/2 c. Chopped flat leaf.parsley
- Olive oil
Season meat on both sides with salt & pepper and then rub in the paprika on both sides.
Mix the chopped garlic with all but 2 tbl of the parsley and rub in on both sides of the meat (if you're using a flank steak you'll need to score the meat for the seasonings to soak in). Brush both sides of the meat with the oil, rub in well, cover and marinate for at least 4 hours.
Preheat grill to high, oil & grill the steaks for 3 - 4 minutes pet side. Don't overcook or you'll end up with Roumanian Garlic shoe leather.
Sprinkle with reserved parsley & serve.
