- Remove meat from marinade, pat dry and liberally sprinkle with salt and pepper on both sides.
- Pre-heat a heavy-bottomed pan to medium-high heat. Add a drizzle of vegetable oil to coat the bottom of the pan. Cook the steak for 3-4 minutes on one side. Flip and cook for an additional 4 minutes for medium-rare.
- Remove steak from the pan and let rest for 5 minutes. Slice thinly against the grain. Drizzle remaining chimichurri over the grilled meat and enjoy!
