Juicy Flank Steak Recipe With Chimichurri Sauce: What You Should Make Tonight

Flank steak topped with a tangy cilantro chimichurri sauce is a quick dinner for those busy weeknights, but perfect for weekend cookouts, too. The chimichurri sauce is also delicious on grilled chicken, fish and shrimp.

The flank steak is simply seasoned with salt and pepper and grilled to your desired doneness. The magic is when the chimichurri is drizzled over the top! The chimichurri sauce is a mixture of fresh cilantro, fresh parsley, garlic, jalapeno, onion, lemon juice, crushed red pepper flakes, red wine vinegar and olive oil. Fresh, healthy and so delicious. 

Not a fan of cilantro? Use all parsley in the chimichurri sauce. This flank steak recipe will soon be a family favorite. Why not serve it at your next family get-together?

Chimichurri is good on anything! You could use it on grilled chicken, burgers or even baked fish or grilled shrimp. One of my favorite restaurants serves it with fried plantains. Elisa All 30SecondMom
