1/2 finger fresh ginger, peeled and grated
1/2 tsp honey

1 ½ lb flank steak

 

Chimichurri:

1/4 cup red wine vinegar
1 tsp kosher salt

1/2 cup fresh cilantro, minced
1/4 cup fresh flat-leaf parsley, minced

Directions:

Whisk together lime juice, grapeseed oil, garlic, ginger, honey and pepper. Place flank steak into a sealable

For the chimichurri sauce, place all ingredients into a food processor. Pulse for 2-3 mins until desired
consistency. Hold in refrigerator for up to 5 days.
