Mr. Rebates

We’re continuing our trip around the world today with a trip to Argentina! Today we’ll make an easy sauce that is a perfect compliment (and most popular condiment) for grilled steak, the most popular dish in Argentina. Serve with roasted potatoes for a truly authentic Argentinean experience!

Simple Meal Planning - Plan to Eat


  • 3/4 cup fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 1/4 cup packed cilantro
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • Flank steak


  • Make the chimichurri sauce by combining parsley, cilantro, garlic, oregano, red wine vinegar and red pepper flakes in the bowl of a food processor; season with salt and pepper, to taste.
  • With the motor running, add olive oil in a slow stream until emulsified; set aside 1/2 cup of the mixture in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
  • Add remaining sauce to a ziploc bag or dish. Add steak and turn to coat. Allow to marinate in the fridge at least 4 hours and up to overnight.
  • To cook, preheat a grill to medium high heat.
  • Remove steak from marinade and season with salt and pepper. Add steak to grill, flipping once until cooked to desired temperature, or about 6 minutes per side for medium rare. Allow steak to rest on the cutting board for 5 minutes before slicing to serve.
