Place steaks onto a board. Cover with cling film. Bash with rolling pin until about 1.5cm thick. Add to bowl. Drizzle with olive oil, season with salt and pepper. Cover, and leave to marinate. Leaves steaks OUT OF THE FRIDGE so they will be at room temperature when you cook them.
Chimichurri time. Into a bowl, add a large handful of finely chopped parsley, a large handful of finely chopped coriander, 2 finely chopped shallots, 1 crushed garlic clove, 5 tablespoons of red wine vinegar and 5 tablespoons of olive oil. Mix together.
Heat a griddle pan. Once it is hot, add your steaks. Cook for 3-4 minutes on each side.
Remove steaks from heat and lay them on a board. Leave to rest for 5 minutes (will make them more tender), then slice them up.
Open up a sub. Layer on some chimichurri. Then some steak slices. Then add some manchego shavings, top with some more chimichurri, pick it up and tuck in!
