Flat Iron Steak (pics)

Flat Iron was on sale and I jumped on it - love this cut and the leftovers are so versatile.  Rubbed with the Argentina Rub from William Sonoma and  grilled on cast iron grate at 550 for about 8 mins total with a few flips.  Got this idea from a griffinsgrub post awhile back . . thanks as always! 

We made some smashed cauliflower and served with spinach salad with hard boiled egg/crispy onions/blue cheese/etc.  Ended up using a store bought chimichurri sauce on the top.  The steak was great, but unfortunately the chimichurri sauce was super salty!  Packaged sauces are always a wild card (got this one at World Market) and hoping I can use it as a dipping sauce for some bread next time?  Next time I will try to make my own chimichurri.  Happy Friday.

    That steak looks perfect and delicious.

    Chimichurri is easy to make and there are a ton of variations.  Once you make it yourself, you won't go back to the packaged stuff.

    Thank You.  I just found a chimichurri recipe on cooks ill website.  I am posting below so I have a record of this for my next flat iron!  Unless . . . does anyone have a proven chimichurri recipe to share?

    • Chimichurri Sauce
    • 1/4cup hot water
    • 2teaspoons dried oregano
    • 2teaspoons kosher salt (see note)
    • 1 1/3cups loosely packed flat-leaf parsley leaves
    • 2/3cup loosely packed cilantro leaves
    • 6medium garlic cloves, minced or pressed through garlic press (about 2 tablespoons)
    • 1/2teaspoon red pepper flakes
    • 1/4cup red wine vinegar
    • 1/2cup extra-virgin olive oil
    • 1. FOR THE SAUCE: Combine hot water, oregano, and salt in small bowl; let stand 5 minutes to soften oregano. Pulse parsley, cilantro, garlic, and red pepper flakes in food processor until coarsely chopped, about ten 1-second pulses. Add water mixture and vinegar and pulse briefly to combine. Transfer mixture to medium bowl and slowly whisk in oil until incorporated and mixture is emulsified. Cover with plastic wrap and let stand at room temperature at least 1 hour (if preparing sauce in advance, refrigerate and bring to room temperature before using).

    Really good looking cook!  It looks pretty healthy to boot (except perhaps high sodium from the salty chimichurri ;)

    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

    @NDG-great cook.  Gotta love that W-S Argentine rub.  Can't believe they no longer make it...dumb marketing/sales decision.  I bought out the local store a couple of years ago and still have 2+ cans.  I use it eggsclusively on flat-irons.

    Looks great. That is a good rub. Need to get some more, but I thought it was discontinued.

    As mentioned, the Argentine rub is and has been discontinued for awhile.  Rumor has it that W-S recognizes the screw-up and plans to reintroduce but with corporate inertia who knows when...FWIW-

    That looks great, I normally would not cook a flat iron at 550 but those pictures show perfection.
