Flank steak is from the bottom abdominal area of the cow. While it has a ton of flavor, it can be a little tough from the hard-working muscle. Make sure to slice it super thinly, against the grain, for the most tender texture. 

If you don’t have access to flank steak, skirt steak is a great substitute in this recipe. Coming from the cow’s diaphragm, it is also a tougher cut of beef. Make sure to only cook this cut to medium-rare and cut it thinly against the grain.
