  2. Place flat iron steak in a resealable plastic bag. Pour marinade over the top. Shake to coat steak in marinade. Refrigerate for 8 hours or preferably overnight.
  3. When you're ready to cook, preheat your grill to medium-high heat.
  4. Place the steak on the grill and reserve the marinade. Cook steak 3-4 minutes per-side for medium rare. Remove steak from grill and let rest for 10 minutes. Remember the steak will continue to cook a bit while resting
  5. Meanwhile, pour marinade into a skillet over medium heat. Pour in remaining ¼ cup of red wine. Bring to a boil and allow to cook until it reduces by half, 5-10 minutes. Stir in remaining tablespoon of fresh rosemary. Remove from heat.
  6. After steak has rested, slice it against the grain into ½ inch slices. Spoon sauce over the top and serve.
