Cilantro Flank Steak
4-6 servings
print recipe

1 1/2 pounds flank steak
5 tablespoons olive oil, divided
1 1/2 teaspoons Montreal steak seasoning
1 1/2 cups firmly packed fresh cilantro leaves
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 teaspoon salt

Brush the steak with 1 tablespoons oil; sprinkle with seasoning.

Heat a cast-iron skillet or grill pan over medium-high heat; cook steak in pan to desired doneness. Three and a half minutes per side will get you rare. Judge from there, but do not cook it to well done.

Process cilantro, next 3 ingredients, and remaining 4 tablespoons oil in a food processor until smooth. Cut steak diagonally across the grain into thin slices. Serve sauce with steaks.
