For the green chimichurri:

Combine the parsley, mint, oregano, canola oil, vinegar, red pepper flakes and garlic in a food processor and process until smooth.

Put the steak in a large baking dish or 1gallon zip-lock bag, add the green chimichurri and turn to coat. Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours and up to 24 hours. Remove the steak from the marinade and place on a plate 30 minutes before grilling.Make sure the flank steak is at room temperature before grilling.

Preheat a charcoal or gas grill to high heat.

Sprinkle the steaks with salt and pepper on both sides. Grill over very high heat until charred on both sides and cooked to medium-rare doneness, DO NOT OVER COOK!!!! You cook this vast over very high heat. DO NOT WALK AWAY, IT ONLY TAKES MINUTES! If you need a drink have someone bring it to you!!! Remove the steak from the grill and let rest on a cutting board for 5 minutes. Cut the meat across the grain into thin slices, top with the red chimmichurri and garnish with parsley leaves.

For the red chimichurri: Using a mortar and pestle, combine the parsley, olive oil, vinegar, oregano, chipotle, paprika, red pepper flakes, garlic and some salt and pepper.

This is great for "Tacos Al Carbon".

Personal Notes:
It does not get any better that this. Try and use charcoal for this one but if you must use a glass grill get it as hot as you possible can. The trick to cooking flank steak is extremely hot heat and cooking very fast!
