These Grilled Chimichurri Steak Quesadillas are just in time for your Memorial Day weekend party! Marinated steak in a yummy chimichurri sauce, Monterey Jack cheese and sautéed onions enclosed in a Flatout light flatbread, then grilled to perfection! This is how you make perfect quesadillas!
I like to use Monterey Jack cheese because it's relatively mild in flavor and melts really well which is perfect for quesadillas. You could replace it with some Colby or Cheddar cheese.
You can also use any cut of steak for this if you want. I prefer a flank steak for quesadillas, it's perfect for feeding a crowd and I personally love the tender texture and it has a good chew. Feel free to cook the steak as raw or as well done as you like.
It is vital to allow the steaks to rest before slicing into them because cutting into the meat prematurely will lead to loss of juices and that's where all the flavor is.
Quesadillas are great for freezing. I usually (if there are leftovers) wrap them tightly in plastic wrap then place them in a ziploc bag and then freeze them. To thaw, take them out about an hour before serving then I like to either microwave them for a few seconds to get the cheese melty again or place them on a baking sheet and pop them in the oven at 350 for about 10 or 15 minutes until they're heated through.
