How To Make Chimichurri Steak:
Putting a fresh spin on a regular piece of steak is easy, and once you’ve had a taste of chimichurri steak, you’ll wish you tried it sooner.
The Ingredients You’ll Need:
- Salt and Pepper
- Garlic Powder
- Onion Powder
- Chimichurri Sauce
- Season the steak well with salt and pepper on both sides. Be generous with the salt. We also like to add a bit of ground coriander and thyme, but this is optional. (Photo 1 & 2)
- Sear the steak well on both sides in a hot pan. For our 1” thick steak, we cooked it about 3-4 minutes per side for medium rare. (An internal temperature of 63C/145F). (Photo 3)
- Cover with foil and let the steak rest for about 5-10 minutes.
- Cut the steak into strips and top with chimichurri sauce. (Photo 4)

- 1/2 cup chimichurri sauce (add more or less to taste)
- to taste salt and pepper
