Chimichurri Steak

Chimichurri is a delicious South American sauce famous in Argentina. It’s a great marinade and sauce for steak or chicken.

3 garlic cloves
¼ small onion
1 ½ cup fresh parsley
½ cup fresh cilantro
½ cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO)
2 Tbsp red wine vinegar
1 Tbsp lime juice
½ tsp red pepper flakes
Sea salt to taste
¾ lb sirloin, hanger or skirt steak

In a food processor, pulse garlic and onion until chopped. Add parsley, cilantro, EVOO, vinegar, lime juice, red pepper and salt; pulse until combine.

In a zip lock bag, marinate steak in Chimichurri sauce for at least 30 minutes. Save extra marinade to top steak.

Grill steak over med-high heat until medium rare, or to your liking. Let rest before slicing.

Arrange sliced steak over rice or green rice. Spoon extra sauce over steak. Enjoy!
