Grilled Sirloin Steak with Chimichurri packs in so much flavor from a homemade chimichurri sauce made with parsley, cilantro, basil, and garlic all served over a simple grilled steak makes the ultimate healthy steak dinner.

We are pretty obsessed with chimichurri in our house and are always looking for any excuse to whip up a batch. And my favorite way to eat it is with a simple, grilled steak. It's the first thing I make when grilling season starts and a constant on our menu throughout the warmer months.

Now to keep this dish healthy and relatively light, its important to make sure to choose a nice, lean cut of meat. You can use a lean sirloin steak like the recipe suggests or go for a lean flank steak. Both pack in tons of beef flavor but are leaner cuts. Then when it comes to the chimichurri, the basics are the same, but you'll want to use less oil. Normal chimichurri is floating in olive oil and while delicious, it's a bit of a calorie bomb. This version uses just two tablespoons of oil and still tastes just as good.
