I am a huge fan of summer grilling and grilled steaks are the best! There is just something that is so magical about cooking outside, with fire, not to mention the smokiness that infuses everything that you cook! This is an Argentinian style grilled steak served with chimichurri. A flank steak is marinated in a simple combination of orange, lime, garlic and oregano before being grilled to perfection! Chimichurri is a fresh parsley based sauce that is amazing with grilled meats of all kinds and an avocado chimichurri is even better! This chimichurri grilled steak is great all by itself as a meal and it can also be used in other dishes like salads, sandwiches, etc.
