Flank Steak Fajitas with Mango Chimichurri

Flank Steak Fajitas with Mango Chimichurri

Serves 4

Mangoes make an appearance in both the sauce and garnish for these fajitas, adding plenty of sweet and tangy flavor. For a vegan version, substitute baked or grilled tofu for the steak.

  • 1/2 cup lightly packed fresh cilantro leaves
  • 1/2 cup lightly packed fresh parsley leaves
  • 1/3 cup lightly packed fresh oregano leaves

  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 mangoes, diced (about 2 cups), divided
  • 1 teaspoon coarse sea salt, divided
  • 1 (1 1/4-pound) flank steak

Method: 

Place cilantro, parsley, oregano, garlic, chile, oil, half of the mango and 1/2 teaspoon of the salt in a blender; purée, stopping to scrape down the sides of the blender. Pour into a small bowl.

Sprinkle steak with the remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt. Grill or pan-sear over medium-high heat until steak is nicely browned and reaches the desired doneness, 5 to 6 minutes per side for medium-rare. Transfer steak to a cutting board and let rest 10 minutes. Slice steak very thinly across the grain. Serve with chimichurri, remaining mango and tortillas for diners to roll their own fajitas.
