Gluten Free Marinated Flank Steak with Chimichurri Sauce

Chimichurri is a classic gluten free sauce from Argentina traditionally served with different types of grilled meat. For the best flavor, prepare the Chimichurri sauce and marinate the flank steaks the night before. You’ll be glad you did!

Prep time: 10 minutes + time to marinate
Cook time: 10 minutes
Serves: 4

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
1½ 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 skillet 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.

For a great Food Processor that is one of the staples in my kitchen I use the Cuisinart Food Processor. It will puree, chop, shred, and slice whatever you need in a timely fashion. If your like me and the more power tools in the kitchen the better, you will see the power behind this thing as it shreds up a pound of cheddar cheese in no time while not getting all gummed up. I love my food processor and use it for anything I can. To pick one up for yourself or as a gift for some one you care about, click on the link.

My most used item in the kitchen is my skillet! Having a good one that will last a long time is really important to me. I have found that the Le Creuset Skillet has been my go to skillet for most of my dishes, makes for an easier cleanup than a regular cast iron skillet too. Click on the link to check it out!!!
