Grilled Flat Iron Steak with Chimmichuri Sauce
- 1 ½ lbs. Flat Iron steak
- 2 Tbs. brown sugar
- 2 tsp. kosher salt
- 1 tsp. fresh ground black pepper
- 1 Tbs. smoked paprika
- 1 Tbs. garlic powder
- olive oil for drizzling
Prepare your grill for indirect heat grilling. Remove the steak from the frig and rub both sides with the dry rub.
Wrap tightly in plastic wrap and allow to sit at room temperature for 30 minutes before grilling.
Right before grilling unwrap the steak and drizzle both sides with some olive oil. Place over the coals and grill for
2-3 minutes per side. Place the steak on the indirect heat side for another 7-9 minutes with the lid on.
An internal temperature of 135 will give medium rare.
Allow the steak to rest for 5 minutes before slicing. Serve in the flat bread with grilled onions and chimmichuri sauce.
- 1 cup olive oil
- 2/3 cup red wine vinegar
- 2 Tbs. lemon juice
- 1 bun. Flat leaf parsley, coarsely chopped
- 1 bun. Basil
- 1 Tbs. oregano
- 2 garlic cloves
- 1 shallot
- fresh ground pepper
- kosher salt
- crushed red pepper flakes
In the bowl of a food processor, combine the olive oil, sherry vinegar, lemon juice, parsley, basil, oregano, garlic and
shallots. Pulse until well blended but do not puree. Add the black pepper, the salt and crushed red pepper flakes.
Transfer the sauce to a non-reactive bowl and cover with plastic wrap for at least 2 hours, and up to 6 hours at room
temperature. Chimichurri sauce will keep refrigerated in a well sealed container for up to 3 days.
Amount Measure Ingredient Preparation Method
2 medium zucchini, Italian style cut in 1/2″ pieces
2 medium red peppers, cut in 6 pieces each
1 lg. red onion, cut in 6 rings
2 medium Japanese eggplants, cut in 1/2″ pieces
18 spears asparagus, trimmed
3 tbs. balsamic vinegar
2 tbs. olive oil
salt and pepper, to taste
1/4 cup mixed fresh herbs, parsley, thyme, rosemary, basil and tarragon
Mix the zucchini, asparagus, peppers and eggplant together in a bowl. Lay the onions in a single layer on a
tray. Mix the balsamic vinegar and oil together and season with salt and pepper. Brush both sides of the
onions with the mixture and pour the rest over the other vegetables and toss to coat. Let marinate for 1 hour.
When your grill is hot grill the onions on both sides until fully cooked. Do the same with the other
vegetables. You may have to move things around and turn several times to ensure even grilling and no
burning. Transfer to a serving platter when ready to eat and sprinkle with the fresh herbs.
