SERVES 6 servings PREP 10 mins MARINATE 1 hr COOK 25 mins READY IN 1 hr 35 mins
- 2 pounds skirt steak
- For the marinade:
- 3/4 cup orange juice
- Fresh juice from 2 limes
- 2 whole chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, minced
- 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce
- 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 6 medium cloves garlic
- For the Chimichurri:
- 1 bunch parsley
- ½ bunch cilantro
- 2 tablespoons freshly minced garlic
- 1 tablespoon dried oregano
- 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
- 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
- 1 cup vegetable oil
- 1/3 cup olive oil
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Items You'll Need:
- Gas Grill
- Combine the ingredients for the marinade into a mixing bowl and whisk together to emulsify. Place the steak into the bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Allow it to marinade in the fridge for at least an hour, up to overnight.
- Prepare the chimichurri. Dice up the parsley and cilantro very fine, and add to a bowl with the garlic, oregano, and red pepper flakes. Add in the red wine vinegar and vegetable oil, whisking to combine. Add in the olive oil, salt and pepper and continue to whisk. Allow the flavors to marinate together while the steak is cooking.
- Preheat a grill for medium-high heat, about 450°F. Remove the steak from the marinade and gently pat with a paper towel to get rid of excess liquid.
- Sear the steak for about 2-3 minutes per side, continuing to flip and build a crust. Do this 4-5 times, or until the steak registers about 130-135°F internal temperature.
- Remove the steak when ready and allow it to rest under loosely tented foil for about 10 minutes.
- Slice and serve with the fresh chimichurri.
