Got 10 minutes? Then you have time to get this one-pot wonder into the oven!

Flank steak is one of the most economical cuts that you can buy — and with delicious flavor too. But it can also be tough, due to the fact that it is one of the leaner cuts, with long muscle fibers. One of the most popular ways to tenderize a flank steak is by marinating it. The acid in most marinades break down that connective tissue (which makes the meat tough) as well as adding flavor. This is a perfect method to use when grilling.

But another great way to create tender, flavorful flank steak is by braising it — allowing it to slowly simmer in a liquid for several hours. And this easy, delicious meal is a perfect example. Just a few simple ingredients, tossed into your Dutch oven and cooked unattended for 2 hours, create a warm, satisfying, and delicious winter dinner.

I like to serve this dish over brown rice but it would work beautifully folded into some warm tortillas too.
