Seared Flank Steak with Salsa Verde

  • SERVINGS: 4
  • FAST
  1. 2/3 cup flat-leaf parsley leaves
  2. 1 garlic clove, minced
  3. 6 anchovy fillets
  4. 2 tablespoons drained capers
  5. 1 teaspoon red wine vinegar
  6. 1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  7. 1 pound flank steak
  1. In a food processor or blender, pulse the parsley, garlic, anchovies, capers and vinegar until coarsely chopped. With the machine on, slowly pour in 1/2 cup of the oil and mix just until blended.
  2. In a large nonstick skillet, heat the remaining 1 tablespoon of oil until almost smoking. Season the steak and add it to the skillet. Cook the steak over moderately high heat until well seared outside and still pink inside, 5 to 6 minutes per side for medium rare. Transfer to a cutting board and let stand for 5 minutes. Carve the steak across the grain into thin slices. Serve with the salsa verde.
Notes Olive Oil A peppery or pungent extra-virgin olive oil gives the steak's salsa verde an edge.

Suggested Pairing

The beef's piquant sauce calls for a red with sufficient fruity intensity. A hearty Shiraz from Australia is ideal.
