Herb-Marinated Flank Steak
Makes 6-8 Servings
  • 2 cups roughly chopped fresh parsley (including stems)
  • ½ cup chopped fresh chives
  • ½ cup olive oil
  • ½ cup fresh lime juice
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh rosemary
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh oregano
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1½ teaspoons kosher salt, divided
  • 1½ teaspoons ground black pepper, divided
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 (2-pound) flank steak
  • Lime wedges, to serve
  1. In the work bowl of a food processor, pulse together parsley, chives, oil, lime juice, rosemary, oregano, garlic, 1 teaspoon salt, 1 teaspoon pepper, and cumin until herbs are finely chopped. Transfer mixture to a small bowl. Stir soy sauce, Worcestershire, and sugar into herb mixture. Reserve half of herb mixture in another bowl; cover and refrigerate.
  2. In a large resealable plastic bag, combine steak and remaining herb mixture; seal bag, turning to coat steak. Refrigerate for 1 to 2 hours.
  3. Preheat oven to 350°. Let steak and bowl of reserved chimichurri stand at room temperature for 15 minutes. Heat a two-burner cast-iron grill pan over medium heat until hot, 8 to 10 minutes.
  4. Remove steak from bag, discarding marinade. Sprinkle steak with remaining ½ teaspoon salt and remaining ½ teaspoon pepper. Cook steak until well browned, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Transfer pan to oven.
  5. Bake until an instant-read thermometer inserted in thickest portion of steak reads 130°, 10 to 12 minutes. Let steak stand for 5 to 10 minutes. (Temperature will continue to rise about 5 degrees.) Slice across the grain; serve with reserved sauce and lime.
