This grilled flank steak is always a hit and so easy to prepare. Topping it with chimichurri sauce is perfection.
Whenever my kids are home for a visit and I ask them what they want me to fix for dinner, flank steak is usually at the top of the list. Five of our six children were home for our recent Barn Wedding so I had the opportunity to cook for my kids, one of my favorite things to do! The week before we had had dinner at a neighbor’s house and she had fixed an amazing flank steak. I of course asked for the recipe.
Cooking for my kids was the perfect opportunity to make it and I have made twice now since I had it at my neighbors just two weeks ago.
I grilled the flank steak but you can always do it in a grill pan or frying pan on the stove if you don’t have a grill.
The marinated flank steak is very flavorful but the Chimichurri Sauce is the best part. It is a combination of cilantro, olive oil and vinegar with a little lime juice thrown in! It makes a delicious condiment for the steak. I was first introduced to Chimichurri Sauce when we visited Argentina several years ago where our son served as a missionary for our church. I was excited to try it at home.
Let’s just say it sure beats ketchup! Any leftovers would be delicious served on a salad.
