Ingredients

  • 1 lb flank steak
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 lemon or lime
  • 1/2 cup chimichurri sauce

Instructions

  • Start by getting your grill nice and hot, if you're using a grill pan indoors, make sure you're using the exhaust fan.
  • Season your steak with chili powder, salt and pepper, then gently place on the grill.
  • Grill your flank steak for 6-8 minutes per side for a medium well steak.
