Today our Sunday Supper Family is focused on lean meats. My husband, Steve, loves a good steak but what makes the steak great? It’s the fat. When I prepare a lean steak I make sure to serve it with a sauce that pops, like chimichurri. This adds the flavor with a healthy fat, olive oil.  CLICK HERE for the recipe for Chimichurri Sauce

Thanks to Sarah from Chef Next Door for hosting this event!

Now that the New Year is here I’m focused on being healthy and that means eating less fat. Steak is an excellent source of protein; according to my trainers lean steak makes an excellent breakfast. I’ve not gotten to that point – yet. No matter, I’ll enjoy this for dinner then have the leftovers for breakfast or lunch, this makes a wonderful meal.

Flank Steak with Chimichurri
  • 1 ½ Lbs. Flank Steak*
  • 1 recipe Chimichurri
  • Salt and Pepper
  1. Pat steak dry, season liberally with salt and pepper. Place the steak in place in a large, resalable plastic bag. Add 1 cup of the chimichurri sauce, seal bag and refrigerate the steak for at least 2 and up to 8 hours. Cover the remaining chimichurri sauce at room temperature. Bring Steak to room temperature at least 30 minutes.
  2. Preheat broiler. Remove the steak from the bag and brush off any excess marinade. Place the steak on a broiler pan and broil 4” from heat 5-7 minutes per side for medium rare (watch the steak closely, the steak should be well browned but not burnt). Place the steak on a cutting board, cover and let it rest for 10 minutes.
  3. Holding a knife at a 45-degree angle, thinly slice steak. Serve with the remaining chimichurri sauce.
*Feel free to substitute Skirt Steak, London Broil or any other lean steak but be careful to adjust the cooking time according to the steak thickness.
** Feel free to grill the steak if desired. Place the steak on a hot grill. Cook for 6 -7 minutes then flip the steak, rotating 45 degrees, and cook another 6 - 7 minutes. Turn the steak over and continue to cook until the steak is done to your liking.
