Total time
Serves: 4
  • 2 lbs skirt steak at room temperature
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
Steak Rub:
  • 1-2 Tablespoons of chili powder
  • 1 Tablespoon dark brown sugar
  • 1½ teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1½ teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
Chimichurri Sauce:
  • ½ cup Italian parsley leaves
  • ¼ cup cilantro leaves
  • 2 teaspoons red chili flakes (less if you don't like spicy!)
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 1 Tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 minced garlic clove
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
  1. Heat a grill to high and lightly oil the grill.
  2. Mix all of the steak rub ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Drizzle half the olive oil over the steak and rub it around. Sprinkle half the rub on the steak and rub it around. Flip the steak over and repeat with the oil and rub.
  3. Cook the steaks for 4-6 minutes on each side until it's medium rare. Remember that steaks keep cooking when you pull them off the grill!
  4. Chop the parsley and cilantro and mix them with the rest of the chimichurri ingredients. (If you have a mini cuisinart, you can use that as well. Just make sure you keep it a bit chunky.)
  5. Enjoy!
