Grilled Flat Iron Steaks With Chimichurri Recipe

Grilled Flat Iron Steaks with Chimichurri Recipe
Serves 6

1 cup parsley
1 cup cilantro
¼ cup chives
¼ cup chervil
½ cup red wine vinegar
2 Tbs. orange zest
1 Tbs. lemon zest
½ – ¾ cup extra virgin olive oil
6 flat iron steaks
Salt and freshly ground black pepper

1. Bring a pot of salted water to a boil and add all the herbs. Immediately remove from the water and submerge in a bowl with ice water. This will stop the cooking process and help to keep the herbs green.
2. Place herbs, vinegar, and zest into a food processor or blender. While the machine is running, slowly stream in the oil to emulsify. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Set aside.
3. Preheat gas or charcoal grill to medium-high heat. Sprinkle the steaks with salt and pepper.
4. Place each steak on grill at an angle. After about 3-4 minutes, rotate the steaks 45 degrees and let cook 3 minutes more. This will create impressive cross-hatch marks. Then flip the steaks over and let cook 4-5 minutes for medium rare.
5. Transfer the steaks to a cutting board, tent with foil and let rest at least 5 minutes. Slice against the grain, drizzle with chimichurri and serve warm.

  1. What is a Flat Iron Steak is there any other to replace this if I can not find it?

  2. H Karen, a flat iron steak is just a certain type of cut. You could ask your butcher for an alternative if a traditional flat iron cut is not available.

    Thank you!
