Recipe from Weber Canada’s Only Grill Academy Flank Steak with Argentinian Chimichurri

Serves: 4 | Prep time: 15 minutes | Grilling time: 15 minutes | Grilling time: 6 to 8 minutes 


Argentinian Chimichurri

  • 2 cups of fresh Italian parsley leaves 
  • 3 cloves of peeled garlic
  • ¼ medium red onion roughly chopped
  • ¼ cup fresh lemon juice
  • ¼ cup red wine vinegar
  • ½ - ¾ cup of extra-virgin olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste ¼ teaspoon crushed red chili flakes (only to taste)

Flank Steak

  • 1 Flank steak, 16-19 ounces
  • Extra-virgin olive oil
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper


  1. In a food processor add the parsley leaves, peeled garlic, roughly chopped red onion, lemon juice, red wine vinegar and salt and pulse blend until it is quite chunky. Then with the processor on, slowly pour in all the olive oil. Taste the chimichurri and adjust for seasoning of salt, pepper and chili flakes if heat is desired. (This can be made 1 or 2 days ahead of time and kept in an air tight container until ready to serve. It also lasts for about 1 week in an air tight container in the fridge.)
  2. Lightly oil the steak on both sides and season evenly and thoroughly with salt and pepper. Allow the steak to stand at room temperature for 30 minutes before grilling.
  3. Prepare a 2 zone grilling area for direct cooking over high heat (450° to 550°F). Allow the grill to preheat for at least 15 minutes.
  4. Once preheated, brush the cooking grates clean. Grill the steak over direct high heat, with the lid closed as much as possible, until cooked to your desired doneness, 3 to 4 minutes per side for medium rare, turning once or twice (if flare-ups occur, move the steaks temporarily over indirect heat). Remove the steak from the grill and let it rest under tinfoil for about 2 minutes before serving with the chimichurri.

Serves: 4 | Prep Time: 20 minutes | Soaking Time: for wild mussels 30 minutes to 1 hour | Grilling Time: 18 to 32 minutes  

Special Equipment: 12-inch cast-iron skillet or Wok 



  • ¼ cup (½ stick) of unsalted butter, softened  
  • ½ cup chopped shallots 
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced  
  • 6 large sprigs of fresh thyme 
  • ¼ cup minced fresh Italian parsley leaves 
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt 
  • ¼ teaspoon ground pepper

  • 4 pounds live mussels scrubbed and beards removed 


  1. Soak the woodchips in water for at least 30 minutes.

  3. In a 12-inch cast-iron skillet or wok combine the butter, shallots, garlic, salt and pepper. Add one handful of the wood chips to the charcoal or to the smoke box of the gas grill, and close the lid. When smoke appears, place the pan with the butter mixture over indirect heat. Close the lid, and cook until the butter is melted and shallots are tender, 8 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the wine and thyme and cook until the mixture is steaming, 5 to 7 minutes.  
  4. Drain and add the remaining wood chips to the charcoal or the smoker box. Move the skillet/wok over direct heat, and then add mussels. Cook the mussels, uncovered, over direct medium-low heat, with the grill lid closed, until the mussels open, 5 to 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. As each mussel opens, use tongs to transfer it to a wait for the remaining mussels to open. Discard any unopened mussels and the thyme sprigs. 
  5. Season the cooking liquid with the salt and pepper. Divide the mussels among four deep soup bowls and garnish with parsley.
