This was an outstanding recipe! The oak gave the steak a wonderful flavor. It took a little longer to char the board than stated. Also, it is easy to overcook the steak because they just look so juicy. 10-12 minutes was spot on for med-rare. Chimichurri sauce was a great addition. I served steak with Corn and Smoked Mozzarella mashed potatoes. Yum!

Sauce was wonderful. I had a bad grilling day though, tried to char planks 2x each time they caught on fire..LOL... so cooked the steaks directly on grill and will try the plank thing again.
