Flank Steak on Texas Toast with Chimichurri

By • July 16, 2011 • 224 Comments



Author Notes: This is a substantial sandwich,tender flank steak that I marinaded in chimichurri and pan seared. I grilled the brioche that's cut extra thick, made a chimichurri mayonnaise, and added slices of fresh tomato. The steak would be equally delicious grilled. - sdebrangosdebrango

Food52 Review: This sandwich is a real two-hander -- juicy and garlicky and fragrant. In an inspired move, sdebrango has you make one big batch of chimichurri, which both marinates the steak and also gets swirled in to flavor the quickie aioli. Her steak prep technique -- marinate, then dry brine -- made for one of the best steaks we've had lately, and the resulting sandwich shines because of it (the ripe tomatoes, buttery Texas toast, and aioli help too). Note: In divvying up the chimichurri, we scooped out mostly garlic and herbs to add to the mayo and held back on the oil so it didn't get too runny, and we were very happy. Very. - A&MA&M

Serves 4

The chimichurri and flank steak

  • 1 1 1/2 to 2-pound flank steak
  • 1 cup flat leaf parsley cleaned and large stems removed, finely chopped (by hand or use food processor)
  • 1/2 cup baby arugula, finely chopped (by hand or use food processor)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced (you can add to parsley and arugula in food processor)
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • salt and pepper to taste
  1. For chimichurri, place all ingredients except flank steak into a bowl, stir to combine. For the steak, cover both sides of the steak with some of the chimichurri, put in ziplock bag and refrigerate for one or two hours. Cover and refrigerate the rest of the chimichurri.

Searing the steak and making the sandwich

  • 1 brioche pullman loaf or if you prefer a white pullman loaf
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 beefsteak or heirloom tomato, sliced
  • Soft butter for bread
  • salt before you sear and pepper after
  • 2 tablespoons Chimichurri to mix with mayonnaise
  1. Remove steak from refrigerator approximately 45 minutes before you are going to cook it. Scrape off some of the chimichurri, salt the steak and let rest. While steak is resting prepare the other ingredients: slice tomato, slice bread in 1-inch thick slices, mix the mayonnaise and chimichurri.
  2. To sear the steak: First with a paper towel pat the steak to remove any excess moisture. In a very hot fry pan lay steak, let it sear without disturbing it. Cook approximately 3-4 minutes on each side for a medium rare steak. (You will have to judge exactly how long to sear based on the thickness of the steak.) Remove from pan, lay on cutting board, pepper the steak now, let rest 5-10 minutes.
  3. While steak is resting, heat a fry pan (if you have one with ridges it will make nice grill marks on the bread). Spread butter on each side of bread, place in hot pan and grill, about a minute per side.
  4. When steak has rested, slice thinly, cutting across the grain. To put your sandwich together, spread the chimichurri mayonnaise on each side of bread, lay meat on bread, then add the tomato, put the other slice of bread on top and enjoy.

What is Chimichurri?

3-bizcard

about 1 year ago sdebrango

Suzanne is a trusted source on General Cooking.

Hi Darby; The chimichurri is the condiment I use to marinate and also mix with the mayo for the sandwich, It originated I believe in South America, Argentina I think, and it's the combination of the herbs, garlic oil and vinegar. It's really delicious. In this recipe I used parsley, arugula and dried oregano along with the oil, vinegar and garlic. Hope this helps and thanks so much for the question.

Portobello update! I marinated sliced portobello mushrooms (3 large) in the chimichurri sauce for approximately 5 hours and then pan-fried them in a little oil and WOW. The sandwich came out wonderfully. Meaty, with great texture and loads of flavor. That chimichurri recipe is delicious and I'm excited to make more of that mayo and slather it on my sandwiches this week. Here's a link to a (not-so-great) photo I took of my sandwich last night. Thanks so much for the inspiration and tips! http://instagram.com/p...

Just want to add that I swirled some leftover chimichurri (draining it a bit with the fork I used to dig it out of the jar) into an omelet with a touch of Fontina. Outstanding! It's my new favorite quick meal. This recipe is a game changer, no doubt about it. ;o)

Served the flank steak, marinaded for two days and grilled, for our mozzarella potluck last night, with boulangere's Italian boule, shaped into ciabatte, for sandwiches. I used a bit more red wine vinegar than called for. I had about 1/4 cup of the chimichurri made at the time I started the marinade, to which I added a half cup of freshly chopped parsley, and topped off with a couple of hefty glugs of the outstanding California Olive Oil arbequina we had on hand, right before serving with the sliced steak. So, so delicious! My herbs are in a rapid growth/production phase, so I couldn't help myself, and added about 1/2 cup chopped Italian oregano (mild, like a cross between Greek oregano and marjoram), marjoram and Greek oregano to the marinade (which was doubled, as I cooked two steaks for the party). I highly recommend this. I'll post a photo or two to Twitter and Facebook, later today. ;o)

Hi, Bevi! I sent sdebrango a good photo of the steak, sliced, which she is going to post. I am trying to figure out why photos sent from my iPad are inverted 180 degrees . . . . I have a shot of the steak just after putting them on the grill. It's not as good due to the evening shadows, but I'll send it to sdebrango anyway, later today.

OMG! thats great. I have to make your recipe for the bread. Will find and save. I really love potato bread I bet it was a "killer" sandwich with that delicious bread.

Made these today for lunch. I used our panini press to make the "Texas toast." The sandwiches were a huge hit! This recipe is a keeper, for sure. In fact, my family agreed that this is one of the best food52 recipes ever (and we've tried scores, if not hundreds, of them in the nearly 2 years that I've been active here). ;o) P.S. I ended up marinating the beef for about 24 hours, due to scheduling constraints. The steak was simply to-die-for!!

Thank you so much AntoniaJames! I am so happy the sandwich was a hit and your kind words, well, thank you so much! Next time I make it I will marinade longer. Thank you again. I really appreciate the great review.

Congratulations sdebrango, very tasty indeed, although I didn't have the Texas bread, I chose a brioche loaf. Very very good.

Thank you so much Maria, I used a brioche loaf that I cut into one inch thick slices and I called it Texas Toast simply because its so thick! Its so good on brioche, Thank you so much, I love your recipes and photography.

Texas toast is kind of like a fried egg - it makes everything that much better. Great recipe, and congrats!

I picked this because it can be cooked outdoors with a charcoal grill in a single step. Grilled asparagus (not traditionally Mexican) and brown rice will be a yummy meal. The Cuban bbq is pretty tasty and will probably be even better the next day because it's been "fried" and meant to be dryer. The cumin flavor once infused will be really good with all the sides mentioned in the recipe.
