Flank Steak with Four Herb Paleo Chimichurri Recipe
Chimichurri is an Argentinian sauce typically served with grilled meats. I first had it in 2004 when I visited Argentina, and later again when I spotted a recipe in a magazine. I have been making many variations since. This spicy four-herb version is by far my favorite. It pairs perfectly with beef, but we often drizzle the leftovers over scrambled eggs!
The chimichurri can be served immediately, but the flavors are greatly improved after a few hours.
I didn’t provide directions for grilling the flank steak… because *gasp* I don’t really know how to grill! I know, I know… you are thinking, but Arsy… there are grilling recipes in your book and on your site? That’s because my husband helps me with those. Since he is off at work today and I really wanted to get this giveaway launched, he is not here to tell me how he made the steak. It’s my goal to learn how to grill this summer and it’s perfect timing because my friend Tony Federico is coming out with a Paleo Grilling book in June (that is available for pre-order now)!.
I do remember my husband mentioning that he didn’t even salt and pepper the steak because he knew the chimichurri is packed with flavor, but he also wanted to taste the TX Bar Organics flank steak all on it’s own. And we all agreed that it was the bomb! It was so juicy and tender. There beef is really more tender than any grass-fed beef that we’ve ever had! If you don’t have a local ranch in your area, I highly recommend ordering beef from these guys!
I am so excited to have teamed up with TX Bar Organics to give away a copy of my cookbook, along with the Paleo Foodie Cookbook meat package! See the details below!

Four Herb Paleo Chimichurri Recipe
1 cup fresh parsley
1⁄2 cup fresh cilantro
1⁄4 cup fresh basil
1 tbsp fresh oregano
2 tbs white onion, chopped
2 tbsp red bell pepper chopped
1 serrano pepper, chopped (go half, if spicy isn’t your thing)
3 cloves garlic
1⁄2 tsp sea salt (find sea salt here)
1⁄2 tsp pepper
1⁄2 tsp cumin (find organic cumin here)
1 tsp chili powder (I like this chili powder, as it has no additives)
6 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil (my favorite oil)
2 tbsp red wine vinegar (I use this organic vinegar)
- Mix all ingredients in a food processor. Pulse a few times until blended but still coarse.
- Serve over or along side grilled meat of choice.

This is my favorite chimichurri recipe and I put it on everything. Love your blog and recipes. I omit the serrano pepper and chili powder because of the kids but it still tastes awesome. I’m so happy it’s replaced “ketchup” in our household. I also love to put this on butter lettuce as a dressing….so yummy.
That is so awesome to hear! I’ll have to try it on butter lettuce. I actually started omitting those same things, as my toddler doesn’t do spicy (yet!)
D Stevens says

Love flank steak, and the price has really gone up since its popularity skyrocketed, so I’ll be looking forward to that one the most since we haven’t bought it in awhile.
Also, there is a conflict between the giveaway and the picture you have posted underneath it. It’s stopping me from being able to click in the boxes and type the word “done.” I was able to do it by hitting the tab button about a hundred times, but others may not figure it out. Just a heads up! Thanks for the giveaway!

Oh boy! I am quite intrigued and VERY tempted by the http://www.txbarorganics.com/petite-tender-aka-teres-major
It’s a cut I am unfamiliar with – at least the NAME is unfamiliar. Beyond that I know I would love the Filet Mignon Steak and my Honey/Huby would love the Rib Eye.
Also because we both love Mexican and stir-fry dishes – the Carne Asada sounds great too! Thanks – for the generous giveaway and for the freat recipe too!

Kathy Williams says
I\’ve never cooked a flank steak but love experimenting and trying new things. The filet cut is my favorite right now.
When it comes to beef, I\’m pretty simple and would be happiest with the ground beef, however if my husband saw my post he would definitely say the filet.
Karen Lynch says
I love flank steak that has been marinated.
would LOVE to grill up some flank steak – the perfect thing for summer!!
Kimberly Oakes says
I\\’ve had their carne asada and oh-my-lanta is it delicious!
I love steak! Doesn’t really matter which cut, although flank is very versatile for salads and such and so fast and easy to cook. I’m very picky about my meat but also don’t have a ton of money so wind up eating mostly ground meat and really do crave steak some times. Thank you!
Deb D. says
I am so excited about the flank steak.
I think I’d be more excited about the book than the steak 🙂
