Easy weeknight tacos is the best thing for busy parents! This chimichurri steak tacos recipe makes it super easy to kick up your tacos a notch with delicious and flavorful chimichurri sauce!
I'm sharing below my delicious recipe for chimichurri steak tacos.
Ingredients for Chimichurri Steak Tacos
1 cup cilantro leaves, lightly packed
1 cup parsley leaves, lightly packed
2/3 cup oregano leaves, lightly packed
4 garlic cloves, chopped
4 tablespoons olive oil, extra virgin
2 mangos, diced
1 mango, diced
1 teaspoon salt
12 Mission flour tortillas, warmed
1 1/2 pounds of flank steak
salt and pepper to taste
1 cup tomatoes, freshly diced
1 cup onions, freshly diced
1 bag shredded cheddar cheese
Directions for your Chimichurri Steak Tacos
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees (will be used for warming the tortillas).
Start the grill (charcoal preferably) for the steak.
Season the flank steak with salt and pepper to your liking.
While the oven is preheating and grill is getting hot, prepare the chimichurri sauce.
In a blender, add in the cilantro, parsley, oregano, garlic, olive oil, 2 diced mangos, and salt in a processor until smooth.
I typically start with the garlic to mince it first in the processor.
Next, I add the diced mango.
And then the rest of the ingredients.
Next prepare your toppings. Dice your tomatoes, onions and remaining mango.
Since my family likes to add their own toppings, I put it on a tray. Notice that the additional diced mango also serves as an additional topping!
Grill the steak until slightly browned and desired doneness.
Let the steak rest for 5 minutes.
While the steak is resting, wrap the tortillas in aluminum foil and put them in the oven for 5 minutes.
Cut the steak across the grain slightly.
Once the tortillas are warm, put the tacos together with the steak, chimichurri sauce, tomatoes, onions and cheddar cheese.
