Chimichurri for your Skirt Steak

With a mix of lovely ingredients, like fresh herbs and spices, Chimichurri sauce is so cool and refreshing. It highly compliments any summer steak, but I especially like it with my skirt steak. 

The sauce is so delicious that I could eat it by the spoonful! But don't worry, I'll resist...

1 bunch fresh parsley
1 bunch fresh cilantro *
4 garlic cloves
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
3/4 cup olive oil
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper

Purée all ingredients in a food processor until combined.

Use a food processor, do not use a blender (I learned this the hard way).

* For those of you "super tasters" that are convinced that cilantro tastes like soap, just double up on the parsley instead, following a more traditional Argentine method of preparation.
