Instructions

For the Chimichurri Sauce, in a food processor combine parsley, vinegar, garlic, oregano and crushed red pepper. Process until smooth. Season with salt and pepper. Add the olive oil and process for a few second. Let stand for at least 1 hour before serving. Can be made the day before — bring to room temperature.

For the Aoili, put crushed garlic and ½ teaspoon salt in a medium bowl. Add egg yolks and lemon juice and whisk to blend. Slowly whisk in olive oil in a steady stream until a creamy sauce forms. Season with salt and cayenne.

For the Rub, combine all ingredients rub on both sides of flank steak. Place spice-rubbed flank steak in a ziplock bag and add lime juice. Marinate for 12-24 hours. Grill flank steak over high heat. 5 minutes per side for medium rare and a little longer for more well cooked. After taking steak off of barbecue let it rest for at least 15 minutes before cutting. Serve the Flank Steak over a bed of arugula and thinly sliced fennel that has been lightly dressed with vinaigrette. Serve with Aioli and Chimichurri Sauce.
