After combining the ingredients you will pulse it until they are well blended but do not make a puree. Then add the 1/4 teaspoon of the black pepper, 1/2 teaspoon of salt, and the crushed red pepper into it. Take away 1 cup of the chimichurri sauce from the processor bowl and then transfer it to a non-reactive bowl while covering it with plastic wrap and preserving at room temperature. Let it be heard that you can reserve it for about 6 hours. In case you are cooking the steak another day, then you can refrigerate sauce and return to room temperature before serving.


Now you will come to the seasoning of the steak with 1 teaspoon of the kosher salt on each side, along with the 1/4 teaspoon of the black pepper per side and then place it in a large, resealable plastic bag. Insert the chimichurri sauce which you have left in the processor and seal the bag which will be followed by refrigerating your steak for at least about 2 to 4 hours.

After the marinating of your steak you will take it out from the refrigerator and let it come to room temperature for about 30 minutes of so. Then you will have to brush away the excess Chimichurri sauce off the steak and let the steak set over the hot grill. Cook it for maximum 6 minutes at the first side and then carefully move your steak 45 degrees while cooking it for another 6 minutes.

Then turn the steak over carefully and continue cooking it until the steak is done and for approximately 6 to 8 minutes for medium-rare. Once it is cooked, lay down the steak on some clean cutting board and then allow it to rest there for about 5 to 7 minutes before you start slicing it across the grain into 2-inch wide strips. You will serve it with crusty bread and the reserved chimichurri sauce.

Beef and Chimichuri sauce is an ideal combination. One can enjoy it with any form of beef however the most popular one is with steak. This is because the flavor comes out very delicious with steak since the sauce is marinated well.
