Total TimePrep/Total Time: 30 min.
- 1 beef flank steak (1 pound)

- 1 teaspoon paprika
- 1 teaspoon prepared mustard
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

- Broil beef 4-6 in. from the heat for 6-9 minutes on each side or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a thermometer should read 135°; medium, 140°; medium-well, 145°). Set aside and keep warm.
