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?
