  • 2 lb flank steak
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper

Chimichurri Sauce

  • 1 cup fresh cilantro
  • 1 cup fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 1/4 cup distilled white vinegar
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 cup olive oil


  • Trim the fat from the steaks and place on a baking sheet.
  • In a small bowl combine salt, garlic powder, cumin, pepper, and cayenne pepper. Sprinkle over steaks and rub into steak. 
  • Cover with plastic wrap and let marinate in fridge for 1 hour.
  • While steaks are marinating, make the chimichurri by combining all ingredients, except olive oil in food processor.
  • Process while streaming in olive oil. Continue to process until smooth and creamy stopping to scrape down sides of bowl as necessary. Transfer to airtight container until ready to use.
  • Once steaks are done marinating, remove from fridge and preheat grill to medium. Grill steaks for 5-7 minutes per side, turning once, or until desired doneness is reached. 
  • Remove from grill and let sit for 10 minutes before slicing. 
  • Slice steaks and serve topped with chimichurri.
