1 piece Flat Iron Steak, 1 1/2 – 2 pounds

1 T Steak Rub

1/2 cup finely chopped cilantro leaves

1/2 cup finely chopped flat leaf parsley leaves

2 T minced garlic

3 T fresh lemon juice

2 tsp. red wine vinegar

1 tsp. Aleppo pepper flakes 

1 tsp. ground cumin

1/2 cup olive oil


Take the steak out of the refrigerator at least 30 minutes before cooking, rub with steak rub, and let it come to room temperature. Wash cilantro leaves and parsley leaves and dry with paper towel or spin dry in salad spinner. Finely chop the cilantro, parsley, and garlic, either by hand or in a food processor with steel blade. Put ingredients into a bowl and add lemon juice, red wine vinegar, Aleppo pepper and cumin and stir to combine. Then stir in olive oil until mixture is well blended, and let sit at room temperature at least 15 minutes before serving. To cook steak, preheat gas or charcoal grill to medium-high heat. Put steak on grill at an angle. After about 3-4 minutes, or when you see nice grill marks starting, rotate 45 degrees and cook 3-4 minutes more on first side. Turn steak over and cook on the second side until the meat is done to your liking. When meat is done to your liking, remove from grill and let rest for 5 minutes, then cut into thin slices across the grain. Serve hot, with Chimichurri sauce spooned over or on the side.
