Grilled Flank Steak with Chimichurri

Yield 6 servings (serving size: 3 ounces steak and 2 tablespoons chimichurri)
Steak with chimichurri is one of Argentina's national dishes. Although it's difficult to find, the author likes skirt steak, a full-flavored, inexpensive strip similar to flank steak. The steak is flavored with a rub modeled on "dry" chimichurri, popular among Argentina's gaucho's.
