Grilled Flank Steak with Chimichurri

Grilled Flank Steak with 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.
