 I love dinners that are easy, delicious & smart! Pretty much any time of year, if I can cook it outside on the grill (like this burger recipe) and get the rest of dinner done with no cooking inside… I feel like a genius! No pots and pans to clean, the house is cooler, and my husband smells like a rugged cowboy! Truly think that The Big Green Egg company should make a cologne. He smells so damn good when he grills. My hubs feels the same way about me when I cook bacon. Go figure.

This Grilled Flank Steak recipe is super easy and quick to cook just right (I like that little bit of pink in the center). Top it with a homemade, zippy, and fresh Chimichurri Sauce (like a Latin version of pesto) and my eyes start to roll back in my head! Especially if there’s leftovers…. PERKS of running an office from home is delicious lunches the next day and this recipe makes an amazing steak salad! Feel free to do the same technique and sauce on chicken, shrimp, pork or your favorite kind of steak. And don’t forget a delicious cocktail (like this one)

TIP: Serve Grilled Flank Steak with this South American Carrot & Garbanzo Bean Salad
