Add the beef and turn to coat. Cover the dish or seal the bag and refrigerate for 1 hour or overnight. Lightly oil the grill rack and heat the grill to medium. Grill the beef for 10 minutes for medium-rare or until desired doneness, turning the beef over once halfway through the grilling time and basting often with the picante sauce mixture. Heat the remaining picante sauce mixture in a 1-quart saucepan over medium-high heat to a boil. Reduce the heat to low. Cook for 10 minutes or until the mixture is thickened, stirring occasionally.

    So, so easy. Was able to use pantry and frozen steak from my stash, loved that. Added corn which was great too. Picky hubby liked it.

    Way too much sauce, 1/2 the amount would have been sufficient. Steak was not tender, cooked it to rare. Wouldn't make it again, wasn't crazy about the flavor of the sauce.

    Outstanding flavor. We grill flank a lot and I love to try other marinades. This is a keeper.
