Take all the listed ingredients for the chimichurri and put them in a blender.
Process until you achieve a finely coarse texture.
Store the chimichurri in a sealed container and refrigerate until it’s time to use it.
Heat your grill to a high temperature. Season your ribeye steak on both sides.
Grill your steak, turning it over every 15 seconds. For a steak that is 2cm thick, you’d typically need around 2 minutes to achieve medium-rare doneness.
Use a meat thermometer to check the temperature by inserting it into the meatiest part of the steak. Keep in mind that you should take off the steak around 5 degrees before it hits your preferred temperature, as it will continue to cook a little more after it’s off the grill.
Let the steak rest for about 5 minutes on a cooling rack placed over a tray; this allows the heat to distribute evenly and the steak’s fibres to relax, ensuring juicier meat.
Once rested, slice the steak against the grain and serve with the previously prepared chimichurri sauce. Enjoy!
