It seems like I have really been in the mood for steak these past few days. Maybe because grilling means fewer dishes. Maybe because it makes great leftovers. Or because it is just so good. This steak with the yummy Argentinian sauce is perfectly fresh and summery. I will certainly make this in the future, especially now that my cilantro and parsely is finally starting to come in. Flank Steak with Chimichurri Sauce

Flank Steak Spices

  • Sea salt and fresh cracked pepper
  • Garlic powder
  • Ground cumin
  • Cayenne pepper
  • Chili powder
  • Dried Oregano
  • 1 1/2 lb flank steak

Chimichurri Sauce

  • 2-3 small cloves of garlic
  • 1 cup lightly packed cilantro
  • 1 cup packed Italian flat leaf parsley
  • Sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste
  • 1/4 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp crushed red pepper
  • 1/3 cup white wine vinegar
  • 1/2 cup olive oil

Sprinkle the spices on both sides of the flank steak. Wrap in saran wrap and chill in the fridge for several hours to allow the spices to meld with the meat. Prepare the grill as usual and cook to desired doneness. I prefer medium to medium well.

While the meat is cooking, puree the sauce ingredients together until it is of pesto like consistency. Serve over piping hot meat and enjoy!
