Steak Tacos with Chimichurri

Preparation

Steak: In a medium bowl, mix together ingredients for marinade. Place steak in a large re-sealable plastic bag and pour in marinade, seal, and refrigerate. Allow to marinate for up to 3 hours in the refrigerator, bringing to room temperature before grilling. Pre-heat grill. Cook steak on medium-high heat to desired doneness. Allow to rest 10 minutes before slicing.

Chimichurri: Place all chimichurri sauce ingredients in a blender or food processor and pulse until well chopped, but not pureed. Place in a bowl and refrigerate; remove from refrigerator 30 minutes before using.

Divide steak between 6 tortillas, drizzle with chimichurri sauce, and Blue Cheese. Garnish with chopped cilantro (optional), salsa, avocado slices, limes, and pickled red onions. 

Tip: Fresh pickled vegetables are easier than you think to prepare. They make a great topping for tacos, burgers, hotdogs and nachos too!
