This chimichurri brings so much bright flavor to the juicy hot steak. I used a pinch of ground chipotle pepper when seasoning the flank. Worked well with the sauce. Great summer meal.

With a flank steak you want to make sure you cut it against the grain and thinly so that you don't get tough pieces. Top with chimichurri sauce and you have a winner.
