Total Time: 20 minutes

Ingredients

  • ½ c. extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/3 c. red wine vinegar
  • 1 c. fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 1/3 c. fresh cilantro
  • 2 cloves fresh garlic peeled
  • ¾ t. crushed red pepper flakes
  • 3 T. fresh lemon juice
  • 1 t. ground cumin
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Remaining Ingredients

  • ¼ c. extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 T. fresh lime juice
  • 2 cloves fresh garlic chopped
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • lbs. flank steak sliced into thin strips
  • 1 T. extra virgin olive oil

Instructions

  • Combine the olive oil, vinegar, parsley, cilantro, garlic, red pepper flakes, lemon juice, and cumin in a food processor and blend until smooth. Season with salt and pepper, to taste, and set aside.
  • In a small glass bowl, combine the olive oil, lime juice, and chopped garlic with a fork. Season with salt and pepper, if desired.
  • Place the flank steak in a large, sealable plastic bag and add the olive oil mixture. Tightly seal the bag and turn a couple times to coat the steak in the marinade. Place in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour to overnight.
  • To prepare, heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Remove the steak from the marinade and allow excess to drip off before adding to the hot skillet. Cook the steak for 3-4 minutes, then turn and cook for an additional 3-4 minutes for medium-rare results. Adjust cooking times to reach the desired level of doneness.
  • Remove from heat and transfer steak to a cutting surface. Let rest for 5 minutes before cutting into very thin slices against the grain. To serve, drizzle steak with some Chimichurri sauce and pass remaining sauce for those who prefer a little more. Enjoy!
