Paleo Skirt Steak with Chimichurri Sauce

Is there anything better in this world than a properly grilled steak?? (No. The answer is no.) We grill steak about once every 2 weeks in our household and it’s definitely an indulgence. We only buy grass-fed, pasture-raised steaks from the farmers market, and that can get a bit pricy if we aren’t careful. And when it’s a special treat like that, I get pretty devastated if it doesn’t taste right.

Paleo Skirt Steak with Chimichurri Sauce Recipe

Thankfully, I’ve perfected my steak recipe over the past few years, and I love how it turns out almost every time now. And with the addition of my Creamy Chimichurri Sauce, it tastes amazing even when I overcook the steak sometimes.

Grilling Isn’t Necessary!

If you don’t own a grill, you can broil your  paleo skirt steak or cook it on a cast-iron skillet. The creamy tartness of the chimichurri sauce complements the steak perfectly and I can’t believe I only discovered this combo recently.

Perfect for Leftovers

The best part, of course, is the leftovers, and I love to enjoy the steak the next day on a salad, tacos, or stir-fry. If you’ve been intimidated about cooking steak in the past, don’t be. It’s actually really easy, and the result is just so dang delicious!

    My husband just had a chimichurri steak for his birthday dinner at a restaurant and I was thinking we needed to try making it at home! Now I can!

    This looks like the perfect recipe to make for my in-laws over the holiday this weekend when they come to visit. Feeds a crowd and impresses them too. Plus my mother-in-law is checking out this paleo thing for herself – it will be a good intro for her 🙂
