However you want to pronounce it, and I have heard several ways...Bar'cola...Bar'cio...Bar-joel....what ever, it is a good and easy recipe that most make with Flank Steak. I remember growing up that my mother used to use make Flank because it was a cheaper cut of meat. Nowadays, it is one of the pricer. A thin sirloin is a good choice if you dont want to spend the cash for flank
