Skirt Steak with Red ChimichurriIngredients:
  • 1 1/2 lbs skirt steak
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 garlic cloves – crushed
  • 1 cup Greek yogurt
  • 1 package flatbread or naan
  • Olive oil
  • Fresh cilantro sprigs for garnish
Red Chimichurri Sauce
  • 1/4 cup roasted piquillo peppers or red peppers
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup red onion
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 3 T parsley
  • 3 T cilantro
  • 1/2 tsp chili flakes
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 T red wine vinegar
  • 1 T lemon juice
  • Salt and pepper

For the Chimichurri Sauce, place all sauce ingredients in a food processor and process just until incorporated and slightly chunky. Salt and pepper to taste.

Place steak on a sheet pan, salt and pepper, spread with crushed garlic and drizzle with olive oil. Let steak rest for 30 minutes to 1 hour before grilling. Preheat grill or grill pan on high heat. It’s very important to have a hot grill because the skirt steak needs a good sear, 4-7 minutes per side. Let the steak rest 6-8 minute before slicing. Slice the meat against the grain into 1/4 inch strips. While meat is resting grill flatbread over medium heat.

Place the skirt steak strips over flatbreads with a dollop of Greek yogurt, chimichurri sauce and fresh cilantro. Serves 4.
