Steak Chimichurri

Steak with Chimichurri Sauce

Chimichurri is a parsley based sauce from Argentina that is commonly used to season steak and other grilled meats. Over the last while I have been seeing some mouth watering posts about steak with chimichurri sauce and I had to try it. Though parsley may not be my favorite herb, it is probably the herb that I use most often and I liked the sound of a steak dressed simply with a tasty parsley sauce. I could not get the thought of a medium rare steak out of my mind so I decided to make steak with the chimichurri sauce. I seasoned the steak simply with just salt and pepper to allow the chimichurri sauce to be the star of the show. Ideally you would grill the steak but I do not have access to a grill so I pan seared the steak in a bit of oil until just medium rare. The steak with chimichurri sauce was good! The chimichurri sauce was nice and cool and refreshing and at the same time it had a touch of heat.

Ingredients:
1 pound steak (cut of choice)
salt and pepper to taste
1 tablespoon oil
1 batch chimichurri sauce

Directions:
1. Season the steak with salt and pepper.
2. Heat the oil in a pan.
3. Add the steaks and sear at high heat until done to your preference, about 2-4 minutes per side for rare to medium rare.
4. Set the steak aside, let rest for a 5 minutes and then slice it thinly.
5. Serve topped with a generous serving of chimichurri sauce.

Looks great, Kevin! Your sauce looks so fresh and green. If you don't like parsley that much, check out my chimichurri. I use cilantro and fresh mint too.

Cheryl said...

Kevin, gorgeous as usual! I love my steak as juicy and pink as yours. I have never had chimichurri sauce, this makes me want to try it!

Steph said...

Wow, I wish my steaks could turn out perfect like that. Mine are usually overdone and chewy.

Peter M said...

Kevin, it sounds like you enjoyed Zen's steak and sauce as much as I did. It looks so vibrant.

Wow. I have wanted to make chimichurri sauce for awhile but have been intimidated... not anymore. Thanks for the inspiration Kevin.

This looks great Kevin. I love Chimichurri Sauce!

Bridgett said...

How gorgeous the sauce is. Did you think it complimented the beef well or did it overpower? Beautiful dish, Kevin!

Heather said...

My god man, you are a blogging machine! I can't keep up.

I make something similar to a chimichurri when my parsley is going to town, but I never put it with steak. This looks really good and summery.

Kitt said...

I only recently discovered chimichurri sauce, as a condiment for garlic boniato fries. It's really fabulous! I will definitely try making some to go with steak.

Jeena said...

Chimichurri Sauce sounds and looks really nice. I love the green and I bet the taste is amazing.

Sandie said...

Yes, yes, YES! This sauce has been bookmarked & saved. The color alone looks great against the steak and the flavor combination has to be out of this world!

I love dishes like this... a simple, tasty grilled steak (medium rare is perfect) accompanied by a knockout sauce. So easy, yet so darn delicious.

Jeff said...

Chimichurri sauce along with pesto is always one of those end of season culinary creations that gets made. Seems to be the time where I have a ton of each herb and I don't want the evil frost monster to claim them.

Looks awesome and that steak looks drool.

AnticiPlate said...

mmmmm! still have not made chimichurri sauce, but it looks like it would be right up my alley!

I am a recent chimichurri convert, and it looks so perfect with your perfectly cooked steak!

Erika said...

Looks great! I am always looking for new ways to cook beef!

Pam said...

I've also wanted to try a chimichurri sauce for awhile now. I'm not all that fond of parsley, though I do use it. Your steak is cooked perfectly!

nicole said...

It does look good. I've never made a chimichurri sauce and it sounds like it went perfect with the steak. Yum!

Gloria said...

This look so yummy Kevin!! Gloria

This is a great excuse for me to use the huge parsley bush we have. Parsley is the least used herb in our mini-garden, yet the bush is the biggest one there! It's even bigger than our mint and rosemary bush, which have been growing like wild fire.

Corinne said...

You know, I see chimichurri all the time on menus and I've never tried it, or even known what it was! This looks easy I will have to try it now.

melissa said...

How funny - this is what I'm making for dinner tonight! :) I had another chimichurri recipe ready to go but I think I'll combine it with yours cause the other one had no jalapeno or carrot. Yum!

giz said...

Cimichurri, steak, Argentina - all seem to flow into one senence. You'v'e done i justice. Now all you need is one of those big huge Argentinian grills and you've got it made. Is there enough room on the balcony?

Zen Chef said...

You are a blogging machine! haha
Thanks for trying the recipe, i'm glad you liked it! Try to blend it a little more next time so it creates a nice bright emulsion. :-)

Elle said...

I can vouch for this recipe! We make it all the time!

Elly said...

Beautiful, Kevin! I love chimichurri and that steak is cooked perfectly.

Jen Yu said...

Oh Kevin, I love me some chimichurri! I spent 4 weeks in Argentina one summer and fell in love with the stuff (and the steak - oh the steak...). This looks so delicious and fresh. Great job!
