Moink in the Wild: Marinated Flank Steak BLT

We were happy to partner with Laura at Cook at Home Mom for the delicious, and easy Marinated Flank Steak BLT (Whole 30/Low Carb) recipe!

 Marinated Flank Steak BLT

Okay you guys, get ready for a pretty epic Whole30/Keto/Gluten Free/Paleo sandwich. It’s a Flank Steak BLT made with grass-fed beef, nitrate free bacon, smashed avocado, ranch, and hollowed out heads of iceberg lettuce. Trust your friend Laura — You won’t even miss the bread.

So this is how it all went down one Sunday afternoon:
Husband: What should we have for lunch?
Me, rifling through the fridge: I have an idea!!!

I had everything I need to make a BLT except one thing, bread. I had iceberg, and I’ve used iceberg as bread before (that’s actually the main reason I even buy it)… but I’m still a bread girl at heart. I just needed to get my mind in a new place and be creative. I’m trying to up my protein game too, and I had just gotten a delivery of grass-fed beef, so I thought, ooh, let’s do this! And the Whole30 Flank Steak BLT was born.

Just a quick note to self: Keep a fork & knife nearby when you eat this, because it becomes a drippy mess pretty quickly and I’m 100% okay with that. In fact, I think it’s even better when your sandwich is a little messy. You know what I’m talking about, right?
