Paleo Flank Steak with Chimichurri Sauce

Paleo Flank Steak with Chimichurri Sauce

Keep in mind when you’re making this that flank steak grows tender with the help of a marinade and cooks quickly. Thank you, Chef Joseph, for all of your inspiration and your utmost respect for the human body and soul. You are an amazing person and a totally free spirit. I will always enjoy the memories of your times over at our home and the many stories of your adventures.

Paleo Flank Steak with Chimichurri Sauce

Chimichurri sauce is a popular marinade among Argentine Gauchos (South American “cowboys,” you could call them) who grill in an open barbecue in the Pampas. I was first inspired to make this recipe at a Pampas-style steakhouse after meeting my wonderful pal, Chef Joseph. I couldn’t believe how amazing the steak was, and I was set on recreating it in my own kitchen.


  • 1 ½ lbs beef flank steak
  • 6 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 cup grape seed oil
  • ½ cup white wine vinegar
  • ½ cup lemon juice
  • ¼ cup parsley
  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • NOTE: double this recipe if you like leftovers


  1. Cut diamond pattern ⅛ inch deep into both sides of the beef. Place beef in shallow glass or plastic dish.
  2. Shake remaining ingredients in tightly covered jar.
  3. Pour 1 cup of sauce over beef.
  4. Cover remaining sauce. Cover and refrigerate beef, turning occasionally, at least 4 hours.
  5. Remove beef from sauce.
  6. Grill beef 4 or 5 inches from medium coals, turning and brushing with sauce once, until desired doneness, 6 to 8 minutes on each side for medium.
  7. Cut beef diagonally across the grain into thin slices.
  8. Serve with reserved sauce.
  9. Enjoy!
Use extra meat to make fajitas. Yum Yum!

    You are amazing !! I’ve been reading all the things on your site & I really believe if it weren’t for my drinking the TigerNut drink & wanting to know more about the Paleo diet I never would have found you ! @ 54 it’s time for me to think before I eat.
