- Food processor
- Cast-iron skillet
Make chimichurri sauce by combining all ingredients in a food processor and pulsing until smooth, and set aside.
Clean steak by trimming off any remaining “silver skin”, and leave the fat cap intact. Slice steak into 1-inch thick steaks with the grain. Discard the ends (they’re often too chewy), keep the thick pieces (4-6 pieces) and season them with sea salt.
Toss chopped vegetables with olive oil to coat and season with sea salt to taste.
To a hot grill or an oiled cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat, add the vegetables and steaks. Cook the steaks for approx. 9-12 mins., flipping halfway, for medium-doneness or to your liking. Cook the vegetables for the same amount of time or a little longer until golden brown on the exterior and soft on the interior.
Allow the meat to rest for 5 minutes before slicing thin, serving alongside vegetables, and drizzling with chimichurri.
