DIRECTIONS

  • In the bowl of a food processor, combine the olive oil, sherry wine vinegar, lemon jucie, parsley, basil, oregano, garlic and shallots.
  • Pulse until well blended but do not puree.
  • Add 1/4 teaspoon of the black pepper, 1/2 teaspoon salt & the crushed red pepper flakes.
  • Remove 1 cup of the chimichurri sauce from the processor and transfer to a non-reactive bowl, cover with plastic wrap and reserve at room temperature for up to 6 hours. (Can be made the day before.).
  • If cooking steak another day, refrigerate sauce and return to room temperature before serving.
  • Season the steak with 1 teaspoon salt on each side, as well 1/4 teaspoon of the black pepper per side and place in a large resealable plastic bag.
  • Add the remaining chimichurri sauce from the processor.
  • Seal bag and refrigerate the steak for at least 2 and up to 4 hours.
  • Preheat a grill or oven to 350F - medium heat.
  • Once the steak has finished marinating, remove it from the refrigerator and let it come to room temperature for 30 minutes.
  • Brush the excess chimichurri sauce off the steak and set the steak over the hot grill or oven.
  • Cook for 6 minutes on the first side.
  • Rotate the steak 45 degrees and cook another 6 minutes.
  • Turn the steak over and continue to cook until the steak is done, about 6-8 minutes for medium-rare.
  • Once cooked, lay the steak on a clean cutting board, and allow it to rest for 5 to 7 minutes before slicing across the grain into 2-inch wide strips.
  • Serve with crusty "warm" bread, the reserved chimichurri sauce, baked potatoes & some nice greens.
