Are you ready for a delicious lunch? Try our Grilled Chimichurri Steak Sandwich recipe, which combines juicy angus skirt steak and zesty homemade chimichurri sauce. The best part about this recipe is the chimichurri sauce, a refreshing and flavorful sauce that complements red meat like steak perfectly.

To make the chimichurri sauce, blend fresh parsley, seven cloves of garlic, salt, pepper and crushed red pepper. These ingredients come together to create a flavorful and aromatic sauce that takes the steak sandwich to the next level.

Next, marinate the steak in the chimichurri sauce to tenderize and enhance the flavors of the meat. Once marinated, grill the steak to your liking. While the steak is grilling, brush the ciabatta rolls with melted unsalted butter and toast them on the grill for a satisfying crunch.

Once the steak is cooked to perfection, assemble the sandwich by adding arugula, sliced cheese, caramelized onions and marinated steak between the buns.

Take a bite of the sandwich and enjoy the satisfying crunch of the buttered ciabatta rolls, juicy skirt steak, zesty chimichurri and sweetness from the caramelized onions.

This Grilled Chimichurri Steak Sandwich is a delicious and flavorful meal for any occasion. Serve it with your favorite chips and drink for a satisfying and filling meal.
