Why I Love This Recipe

My boyfriend is from Venice, Italy, and LOVES this stuff. His Mama made it for him all the time and I wanted to give him a taste of home when he comes to visit me. This is super-easy, very flavorful and a great alternative to plain ol' American steak and potatoes.

Ingredients You'll Need

1 bunch of fresh parsley
2 bay leaves
1 1/4 Tbsp red pepper flakes
6 garlic cloves
1 tsp sharp paprika
1 tsp cumin powder
1 1/2 tsp dried oregano
1/2 cup red wine vinegar
1 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
pinch of kosher salt
4 8oz Argentinian or skirt steaks


To make the chimichurri (sauce): Place parsley, bay leaves, red pepper flakes, garlic, oregano, vinegar, olive oil and salt, to taste, in a food processor.

Pulse until well-combined. Put chimichurri in a glass or plastic container, using as needed. For best results, cover bowl in plastic wrap and let sauce stand for 2 hours before using. Chimichurri will keep for up to 6 months. Makes 2 1/2 cups.

To grill steaks: Prepare a medium-hot fire in the grill, or set oven broiler to low.

Season steaks with kosher salt. Place steaks on the grill and cook to desired doneness, about 4 to 6 minutes on each side. Transfer to a serving dish and spoon chimichurri over each steak. Serve immediately.
