This steak is my oldest son’s new favorite! He loves when I dice it up and mix it in with rice and a little more of this delicious chimichurri sauce. I have been in somewhat of a dinner rut, not so much that I don t have ideas about what to make, but I have been exhausted from the duty motherhood has bestowed upon me lately. Every season is different, and I think having 2 under 1 is the kicker here, haha. I try to have the most positive outlook on life right now. I know it doesn’t last forever, and it truly goes so quickly.

I’ve thought about adding just daily writing posts about the family and my days to this blog in a separate section; what do you guys think?

Okayyy…Back to the point of this post, thanks for flitting me ramble a little, ha!

This steak gets approval from everyone in this house, so I keep it on rotation a few times a month. The chimichurri can also be made and used on chicken, fish, and veggies! It’s versatile and really so dang delicious! However, I do believe that it goes best with this Chimichurri Flank Steak!

  • olive oil
  • lemons
  • dried oregano
  • red pepper
  • salt & pepper

How To Make Chimichurri Flank Steak

This is a fairly simple recipe with minimal steps. I like to let it marinate for 30 minutes – 2 hours. The Chimichurri is always a good idea to double and have for the week. I love it on my toast, rice, bowl, and salads.

  • Start by combining all the Chimichurri ingredients in your food processor. You do not want a smoothie texture, so be careful not to over-process. It’s best to use your pulse button till the ingredients are chopped and combined.
  • Reserve 2 – 3 tbsp of the marinade and pour the rest over your flank steak. Toss and coat the steak, then cover and let sit in the fridge to marinate for 30 minutes or up to overnight.
  • Preheat your skillet or grill pan with some cooking oil to medium-high heat. Now add the steak and sear for 6-8 minutes. You want a brown outside and a slightly pink inside for a juicy, tender steak.
  • Let the steak rest for 5 minutes, then when you’re ready to eat it, slice it across the grain, add chimichurri sauce over the top, and enjoy!
