For the chimichurri marinade

1 bunch fresh parsley, leaves only
1 bunch fresh coriander, leaves only
5 cloves garlic
1/2 red onion, roughly chopped
2 tsps hot paprika
2 tbsps sherry vinegar
115 ml olive oil
1 tbsp salt
1 tsp freshly ground black pepper
900 g bavette steak
12 (20 cm) flour tortillas
Drunken peppers, recipe follows

For the drunken peppers

2 tbsps olive oil
2 poblano peppers, seeded and cut into strips
2 green bell peppers, seeded and cut into strips
2 red bell peppers, seeded and cut into strips
2 jalapeno peppers, seeded and cut into strips
1 large onion, sliced
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1/2 bottle lager beer

1) To make the chimichurri: in a food processor, add parsley, cilantro, garlic, hot paprika, vinegar, 115 ml olive oil and salt and pepper and blend until smooth, reserve half for drizzling on fajitas. Place remaining marinade in a resealable plastic bag and add steak. Coat well and marinate for at least 1 hour.

2) Preheat grill to medium-high.

3) Remove steak from marinade and discard marinade. Season steak with salt and pepper and grill over medium-high heat until cooked to medium-rare, about 6 minutes per side. Let steak rest for 10 minutes, loosely covered with aluminum foil, before slicing.

4) Meanwhile, warm tortillas on the grill. Slice the steak on the bias into thin slices. To serve, place meat on each tortilla and top with drunken peppers. Drizzle chimichurri sauce over the filling and form into a loose fold.

5) For the drunken peppers: in a large saute pan heat 2 tbsps oil over medium-high heat. When shimmering, add peppers and onion. Season with salt and pepper and saute until softened and caramelized around the edges, about 6 to 8 minutes. Add beer and cover. Cook a few minutes more until the peppers and onion are tender.
