Looking for a quick and delicious taco dinner?  These simple steak tacos with avocado chimichurri only took a few minutes to make and were filled with delicious savory, fresh and spicy notes all in one bite.  Adding avocado to the chimi was a first and it won’t be the last.  It was out of this world!  Perfect topping on a taco, or dip for chips.  Once you start eating it, you just can’t stop.  Only a few ingredients and you can transform any dish.  Let me show you how.    

Step 1: Prep the steak.

Steak Taco and Chimichurri ingredients

For this recipe, as in most of my steak taco dishes, I went with skirt steak.  It’s the perfect thin cut of red meat for tacos that absorbs seasonings well and cooks to a perfect tender medium rare in minutes. 

Prep is simple.  Slice off any thick fatty pockets and slice the meat to a size that fits your grill if laid flat.  Drizzle a little olive oil for the binder and season with you choice of taco seasoning.  I went with a tex mex mix by Hardcore Carnivore

Set aside the seasoned steak allowing it to sweat and absorb the spices while you prep the chimichurri.

Step 2: How to make the perfect avocado chimichurri

I would like to think I have perfected the chimichurri recipe over the years, but this time I tried something new, an avocado chimichurri.  Wow, was it good.  It was bowl licking clean good! Savory, fresh, spicy and tangy, this avocado chimichurri is a must have.

In a blender, add parsley, cilantro, fresh garlic cloves, chopped avocado, freshly squeezed lime juice, crushed red pepper flakes, salt, olive oil and red wine vinegar.  Blend all the ingredients together.

Step 3: How the grill up the perfect steak tacos with avocado chimichurri.

Skirt Steak

Preheat the grill to 450 degrees and set for direct heat. Cook the steak 2 minutes per side. Remove it off the grill and let it rest for 10 minutes wrapping it in foil.  

Warm up some corn tortillas, chop the steak and add a few spoonfuls of it, dress with the avocado chimichurri, add chopped white onion and cilantro.  Enjoy!

Frequently Asked Questions:

What cut of steak should I use?

Type of steak depends on what you are trying to grill up. For hot and fast look for cuts with good marbling like a ribeye or NY strip. If you are cooking a roast or stew, look for cuts that are cheaper and meatier like a chuck roast.

At what temperature should I remove the steak?

The internal temperature all depends on how you want or prefer your steak cooked. For a medium rare, remove it at between 120-125 degrees. If you are going for a medium cooked steak, anywhere between 135-140 degrees. Anything over will be well done. Remember to always rest the meat for 10 minutes before slicing.

Can I make this in the oven or stove top?

All my recipes can be replicated in the oven, stove top or gas grill. You do not need a big green egg or weber grill to replicate any of my recipes.
