  1. Place the parsley, garlic, salt, pepper, pepper flakes, oregano, shallots, olive oil, sherry, and lemon juice, in a blender or food processor and pulse until well chopped well, but not pureed. Reserve.
  2. Dissolve cayenne pepper and salt in 1 cup hot water. Transfer to a squeeze bottle container.
  3. Place the steak directly over a hot grill, baste with the cayenne grilling sauce, and grill until the outer portion of the meat reaches the desired degree of doneness.

Return the remaining steak to the grill, baste, and grill until more of the steak is cooked.

  6. For extra spicy steak, baste 2 or 3 additional times during grilling process.
  7. Serve the chimichurri sauce alongside the steak.
