Cooking for 4 people


Flank Steak:

  • 1 flank steak
  • 2 tbsp. avocado oil (or high heat oil)

Flank Steak Seasoning

  • 1 tbsp. sea salt
  • 1 tsp. black pepper
  • 1 tsp. dry oregano
  • 1 tsp. granulated garlic
  • 0.125 tsp. cumin powder


  • 0.75 cup parsley (finely chopped)
  • 1 pinch red pepper flakes
  • 5 cloves garlic (finely chopped)
  • 1 tsp. dry oregano
  • 2.5 tbsp. red wine vinegar
  • 0.5 cup olive oil

1 Food Prep

  • Mix together your flank steak seasoning ingredients in a bowl. Rub oil on both sides of your flank steak and then evenly sprinkle your seasoning mixture on both sides.

  • Place your flank steak, uncovered, in the refrigerator for 1 hour. This will help your dry brine to fully permeate your steak, enhancing your flavors.
  • Before grilling, remove your flank steak from the refrigerator and let it stand at room temperature for about 20 minutes.
  • Finally, combine all of your chimichurri ingredients together in a mixing bowl, and mix until well combined. Refrigerate your chimichurri until ready to serve.

2 Grill Prep

3 The Cook

  • When you’re at temp, put cooking oil on a folded paper towel. Grab the oiled paper towel with long-handled tongs and oil the grate thoroughly.

  • Place your flank steak on the grill and cook for about 5 minutes on each side, or until it reaches your desired doneness.

  • Then, remove your flank steak from the grill and place it into a pan. Cover it and let it rest for at least 7 minutes before slicing. Serve your flank steaks sliced, against the grain, with chimichurri on the side or drizzled on top.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Basic Recipe We have this in our regular family rotation but it’s a good choice for Company, too. We switch it up by sometimes serving it on tortillas and sometimes serving it with a nice crusty bun.
