Ingredients

  • CHIMICHURRI SAUCE:
  • 1/2 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 3 tbsp Red Wine Vinegar
  • 3 Garlic Cloves, peeled and roughly chopped
  • 1 tsp Crushed Red Pepper Flakes
  • 1/3 cup Fresh Flat Leaf Italian Parsley Leaves, loosely packed (stems removed)
  • 1/3 cup Fresh Cilantro Leaves, loosely packed (stems removed)
  • Himalayan Pink Salt, to taste
  • Freshly Ground Black Pepper, to taste
  • MEAT:
  • 1 1/2 lbs. Flank Steak
  • Freshly Ground Black Pepper, to taste
  • Himalayan Pink Salt, to taste

Instructions

  • Chimichurri Sauce: Add all of the ingredients, except for the olive oil, to a food processor and pulse a few times until chopped. Slowly add the olive oil, while pulsing the mixture a few more times until the olive oil is fully combined. (If necessary, you may need to stop to scrape down the sides of the food processor).
  • Refrigerate until ready to use. Right before serving, bring it back to room temperature.
  • Flank Steak: Preheat the grill on high heat for about 10 minutes. Turn down to medium-high right before placing the meat on the grill.
  • Season both sides of the meat with salt and pepper.
  • Place the steak on the grill and cook until golden brown and slightly charred, about 4-5 minutes. Turn the steak over and continue to grill for 3-5 minutes for medium-rare (an internal temperature of 135 degrees F), 5 to 7 minutes for medium¬†(140 degrees F) or 8 to 10 minutes for medium-well (150 degrees F).
  • Transfer the steak to a cutting board, lightly covered with foil, and let rest for the amount of time that you grilled it. Thinly slice the steak across the grain.
  • Serve as is with the chimichurri sauce, in tacos or even as a taco bowl.
