Directions:

In a large bowl or ziplock bag, combine steak, soy sauce, honey, Gochujang, ginger, garlic, and sesame oil. Cover and marinate in fridge at least 1 hour or overnight for best results.

Meanwhile, make the chimichurri. Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl and store in fridge until ready to serve.

Preheat grill or grilling pan on high.

Remove steak from its marinade and sear for 5-8 minutes then flip and sear other side for an additional 5 minutes, or until your desired doneness is reached. Remove steak from grill and allow to rest 10 minutes. Thinly slice steak against grain and serve topped with the chimichurri.
