Flank Steak with Chimichurri Sauce


  • Steak
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 ½ pounds beef flank steak
  • salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
  • Chimichurri Sauce
  • 1 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 cup minced fresh parsley
  • ½ cup minced fresh cilantro
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • ¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • salt and freshly ground pepper to taste


  1. Rub 2 tablespoons olive oil onto flank steak to coat; season with salt and pepper.
  2. Mix 1 cup olive oil, parsley, cilantro, garlic, lime juice, red wine vinegar, and crushed red pepper together in a bowl; season with salt and pepper.
  3. Preheat outdoor grill to medium-high.
  4. Grill flank steak until no longer pink in the center, 6 to 8 minutes per side.
  5. Rest the steak for 10 minutes before slicing; serve with chimichurri sauce.
Mealthy tip:

Not grilling weather? Sear the steak in a stove-top grill pan or cast-iron skillet. Leftover chimichurri (if you have any!) can be refrigerated for up to one week. Or make a double batch of chimichurri and serve the leftovers with grilled chicken thighs, roast potatoes, or even on scrambled eggs! It also makes a nice dip for crusty bread or a spread on a roasted veggie sandwich.

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.

I've wanted to try this for so long! I did ribeye with the chimichurri sauce and served it with Brussels sprouts. It was fantastic.

Made reverse seared steak in my cast iron skillet and served with the chimichurri. Great recipe, full of flavor. Didn't even need any sides with it.
