Brazillian Flank Steak


There comes a point when my blood thirsty carnivore boys say they want red meat or there will be mutiny! So I capitulate and give in to the demands.  I do so with a very lean cut of meat and cook it quick and hot on the grill for great flavor and fast and healthy Chimichuri sauce top it off.

2 lean cuts of Flank steak

3 whole garlic cloves

1 bunch of fresh parsley

1/3 cup olive oil

salt and pepper and onion and garlic powder

Season the meat with salt and pepper and both garlic and onion powders.

In a food processor put in parsley, garlic cloves and salt and pepper to taste. (Aprox 1 tsp of each) Pulse while drizzling in  olive oil.

Pulse until all ingredients are combined and make a paste like consistency.

Grill steak, on grill or use a grill pan, on medium high heat for 4 minutes each side. This will bring the meat to medium rare. All meat should be cook to medium rare for the best flavor.  If you cook the steak any longer it will lose all it’s flavor.  Let the meat rest 5 minutes and then cut on the diagonal.

Plate on a serving platter and spread the chimichuri sauce on top.  This is a great fresh approach to grilling out. Quick, tasty and lighter than a heavy steak.


About the plaid and paisley kitchen

I am just like you, a modern woman juggling life, family, work, and always struggling to find time to work on my hobbies. As the wife of a very picky eater with very definitive likes and dislikes, (Mostly misconceptions of what something may taste like.) I can honestly say that every recipe on here is “Stevie Approved!” I am the Great-Granddaughter of German immigrants and I learned to cook in my mother’s and grandmother’s kitchens. As I grew and gained experience in my own kitchen I took the lessons I learned and branched out and started new traditions mixed with Old World styling. I was raised by a very artistic and talented mother, and if I inherited just a tad of her abilities then I consider myself very lucky. In primary and secondary schooling I was always heavily involved in art and drama. I still have a great passion for the theater. I think that a household should have a healthy dose of dramatic flair. I feel that food should be prepared with quality and fresh ingredients, and that meals should be served with love. I believe a home should be comfortable and beautiful at the same time, and that an organized home is a happy home!
