Marinated flank steak is a delicious and easy recipe that is perfect for a weeknight dinner. The steak is marinated in a combination of olive oil, garlic, and herbs, then cook to perfection. The chimichurri sauce is a bright and flavorful accompaniment that takes the dish to the next level. 



Chimichurri Sauce

½ c. extra virgin olive oil 

1/3 c. red wine vinegar 

1 c. fresh flat-leaf parsley

1/3 c. fresh cilantro 

2 cloves fresh garlic, peeled

¾ t. crushed red pepper flakes

3 T. fresh lemon juice

1 t. ground cumin

Salt and pepper, to taste

Remaining Ingredients

¼ c. extra virgin olive oil

3 T. fresh lime juice

2 cloves fresh garlic, chopped

Salt and pepper, to taste 

lbs. flank steak, sliced into thin strips

1 T. extra virgin olive oil




Combine the olive oil, vinegar, parsley, cilantro, garlic, red pepper flakes, lemon juice, and cumin in a food processor and blend until smooth. Season with salt and pepper, to taste, and set aside. 



In a small glass bowl, combine the olive oil, lime juice, and chopped garlic with a fork. Season with salt and pepper, if desired.


Place the flank steak in a large, sealable plastic bag and add the olive oil mixture. Tightly seal the bag and turn a couple times to coat the steak in the marinade. Place in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour to overnight. 


To prepare, heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Remove the steak from the marinade and allow excess to drip off before adding to the hot skillet. Cook the steak for 3-4 minutes, then turn and cook for an additional 3-4 minutes for medium-rare results. Adjust cooking times to reach the desired level of doneness. 


Remove from heat and transfer steak to a cutting surface. Let rest for 5 minutes before cutting into very thin slices against the grain. To serve, drizzle steak with some Chimichurri sauce and pass remaining sauce for those who prefer a little more. Enjoy!
