Marinated Flank Steak Fajitas with Drunken Peppers

Marinated Flank Steak Fajitas with Drunken Peppers

I've been looking for new ways to use my Anova Sous Vide Precision Cooker, and steaks are always exciting. Sous vide can be used for a lot of things, but there's something to be said about achieving that perfectly consistent doneness in a delicious piece of steak. 

Since steak can definitely be pricey, I chose to experiment with some cheaper cuts--enter flank and skirt steaks. This particular recipe calls for flank steak, but I'm sure that your fajitas could be just as fine with another cut. I like the leanness of the flank--it's almost as if the fajitas are good for you!

This recipe works for about 2lbs of steak. The chimichurri recipe I used is actually a chimichurri marinade recipe--I wanted more of a sauciness--so don't be alarmed if it's not thick. I just threw everything into my food processor and let'r rip.

Check out my video of the cooking process for these amazing fajitas.
