Flat Iron Steak w/Chimichurri Sauce

I was continuing the search for something different and decided to try to make a Chimichurra sauce.  I've always seen recipes with it and made the decision to make my own.  I found a cheap Flat Iron steak in the grocery store.  Can you say fate?

Flat Iron Steak w/Chimichurri Sauce
1lb flat iron steak

1 bunch fresh parsley, chopped
1 pinch fresh cilantro, chopped
8 cloves garlic, chopped
3/4 cup olive oil
1/8 cup sherry wine
1/8 cup white vinegar
3 tablespoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • Combine all ingredients for sauce in a food processor.  Pulse until mixed well but not pureed.  Let sit and the flavors will mingle.
  • Season steak with salt and pepper and cook until done to your likeness.  Remove steak from heat and top with Chimichurri sauce.  Let rest for five minutes.  Enjoy!
This was a different flavor.  I think I used to much cilantro for my liking but my wife thought it was good.  She likes cilantro much more than I do.  I spread this on a piece of bread and it was also delicious!  Next time I will have to toast it!  What dishes have you created with a Chimichurri sauce?


  1. I love cilantro so I bet I would like this too!

  2. Like Stephanie, I LOVE cilantro! This is my kind of sauce!

  3. I've only put it on steak, but I'm definately dipping some bread in there next time! Great idea.

  4. This looks awesome! I have always been a big fan of chimichurri sauce
