This steak is topped with a flavourful herb mixture, inspired by Argentinian chimichurri, that is also a nice accompaniment to grilled chicken or fish. If you don't have flank steak, substitute your favourite grilling steak. Cover and refrigerate any leftover chimichurri for up to three days. 

  • Portion size 4 servings

  • 4 large carrots peeled and sliced lengthwise 1/4 inch thick
  • 3 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 lb beef flank steak
Chimichurri Sauce:
  • 3/4 cups packed fresh parsley leaves
  • 2 green onions chopped
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 pinch pepper
  • 1 pinch crushed hot pepper flakes
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil


In large shallow dish, toss together carrots, 2 tsp of the oil and half each of the salt and pepper; set aside.

Combine cumin and remaining oil, salt and pepper; brush over both sides of steak. Place steak and carrots on greased grill over medium-high heat; close lid and grill, turning once,
until steak is medium-rare, about 12 minutes, and carrots are tender, about 16 minutes. Transfer steak to cutting board; tent with foil. Let stand for 5 minutes before thinly slicing across the grain.

Chimichurri Sauce: Meanwhile, in food processor, pulse together parsley, green onions, garlic, vinegar, salt, pepper and hot pepper flakes. With motor running, slowly drizzle in oil and 2 tbsp water. Serve with steak and carrots.
