Chimichurri sauce is a popular marinade among Argentine gauchos, who grill on an open barbeque in the pampas. Flank steak grows tender with the help of a marinade and cooks quickly. Serve some peach pie for desert and you family will be in heaven!
1 ½ lb beef flank steak
6 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 c grape seed oil
½ c white wine vinegar
½ c lemon juice
¼ c parsley
1 tsp crushed red pepper
1. Cut diamond pattern 1/8 inch deep into both sides of the beef. Place beef in shallow glass or plastic dish. Shake remaining ingredients in tightly covered jar. Pour 1 c sauce over beef. Cover remaining sauce. Cover and refrigerate beef, turning occasionally, at least 4 hours.
2. Remove beef from sauce. Grill beef 4 or 5 inches from medium coals, turning and brushing with sauce once, until desired doneness, 6 to 8 minutes on each side for medium. Cut beef diagonally across the grain into thin slices. Serve with reserved sauce.
Use extra meat to make fajitas.
