Whole30 Steak with Chimichurri (Paleo & AIP)

  • Author: Michelle
  • Total Time: 30 minutes
  • Yield: 2 servings 1x


  • 2 lbs NY strip steak (2 steaks)
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper (omit for AIP)
  • 2 tbsp avocado oil
  • 1 clove garlic
  • Chimichurri Sauce


  1. Set the strip steak out on the counter for 15-20 minutes to allow to come closer to room temperature.
  2. Pat the steak dry and salt well on both sides, along with pepper.
  3. Heat the avocado oil in a large cast iron pan on medium heat.
  4. Once the oil is hot and shimmering, add the steak to the pan along with the garlic clove. Cook the steak for 3 minutes on each side. Use a meat thermometer to check for the temperature of the desired doneness. See notes.
  5. Remove from the pan and allow to rest for 5-10 minutes.
  6. Slice and serve topped with chimichurri sauce.


For a rare steak, the temperature should be 130 F-140 F, medium rare if 140-145F, a medium steak is around 150-160F and well done is anything above.
