Marinated Flat Iron Steak with Kale and Basil Sauce

Marinated Flat Iron Steak with Kale and Basil Sauce

I can never go wrong in our house serving a flat iron steak for dinner. I normally make a very traditional chimichurri sauce but the other night I was out of a few items for the chimichurri and decided to invent something new. As my family is looking for green sauce to put on a steak anyway I thought I would give a kale and basil mix a try, the sauce was great something between a pesto and a chimichurri. They really enjoyed it and the left over sauce thinned with more olive oil and some lemon juice was a great salad dressing the next night. If you don’t feel like making the sauce, this citrus marinated flank steak will make awesome steak fajitas.
