Step 1

Make the marinade. In a bowl, combine the rosemary, sage, thyme, salt,  black pepper, garlic, dry red wine and olive oil.

Make the marinade.
Step 2

Using plastic gloves, add the flat iron steaks into the bowl and rub the marinade into the steaks. Transfer the steaks into the refrigerator and marinate for a minimum of 30 minutes to allow the flavor to develop.

Step 3

While the steaks are marinating, make the balsamic glaze. In a small saucepan, heat the brown sugar, swirling frequently until the sugar caramelizes. Be careful not to burn the sugar.

Step 6

Remove flat iron steaks from the marinade and discard the marinade. Heat the grill. A hardwood grill is preferred, but a brick char-broiler or an indoor grill pan will accomplish the task just fine. If grilling indoors, remember to turn the exhaust fan on. Grill the flat iron steaks until evenly browned on both sides before basting.
