Seared Flank Steak with Chimichurri Sauce

For our Seared Flank Steak with Chimichurri Sauce, we found that the sauce cooked quickly, so it was essential to prepare the ingredients before we began cooking the steaks. A heavy skillet with a nonreactive cooking surface was also a necessity.

With blender running, slowly drizzle in 4 tablespoons oil until smooth and emulsified. Season with salt and pepper. 2. Pat steak dry with paper towels and season with salt and pepper. Heat remaining oil in empty skillet over medium-high heat until just smoking. Cook steak until well browned, 5 to 7 minutes per side. Transfer to cutting board, tent with foil, and let rest 5 minutes. Slice steak thinly against grain. Serve, passing sauce at table.
