Directions

For the chimichurri, place the parsley, cilantro, onion, garlic, and chipotle peppers in a food processor; cover and pulse until minced. Add ½ cup oil, vinegar, lime juice, oregano, lime peel, ½ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper; cover and process until blended. Cover and refrigerate until serving. Drizzle steaks with remaining oil; sprinkle with remaining salt and pepper. Grill, covered, over medium heat for 8-10 minutes on each side or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a meat thermometer should read 145 degrees, medium, 160 degrees, well-done, 170 degrees). Thinly slice across the grain; serve with chimichurri.
