Loved this dish! Sauce was amazing and I loved the pickled onion. Easy to overcook the meat which I did, but it really didn't matter with the sauce and onion. I will be using the chimichuri and onion the rest of the week on different dishes! Thanks Nancy!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Make the pickled red onion. Combine the cider vinegar, sugar and 1 teaspoons salt in a medium bowl and whisk to dissolve. Add the red onion and 2 tablespoons cilantro and stir to combine. Cover and set aside at room temperature for 1 hour.
  2. Meanwhile, soak 20 wooden skewers in warm water, at least 20 minutes. Slice the flank steak against the grain into 20 strips, about 1/8 inch thick. Thread the meat accordion-style onto the skewers and set aside until ready to grill.
  3. Combine the remaining cilantro, the garlic, red wine vinegar, lemon juice, red pepper flakes, 1/2 teaspoons salt and the olive oil in a blender and puree until smooth; transfer to a small bowl.
  4. Heat a grill or grill pan to medium high. Season the steak with salt and pepper. Brush the grill with olive oil, then grill the skewers until marked, about 1 minute per side. Serve with the chimichurri and pickled onion.
