Chimichurri Steak

I've been thinking about making this one for a while, and finally got around to finding a night to try it out! The chimichurri sauce is full of big flavors that compliment steak perfectly! This chimichurri is based off of Anthony Bourdain's version, with a few modifications.

The Recipe:

  • 1 1/2 Cups Olive Oil
  • 1/4 Red Wine Vinegar
  • 1 Cup Finely-Chopped Fresh Parsley
  • 1 Cup Finely-Chopped Fresh Cilantro
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Cayenne Pepper
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Paprika
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Oregano
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Pepper
  • 4 Cloves Garlic, Minced
  • Juice of Half a Lime
  • Juice of Half a Lemon
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 Top Sirloin, About 2 Pounds

Combine all ingredients in a bowl and stir until combined. Marinate the top sirloin in a plastic storage bag for at least 1 hour. Then, it's time for the grill. I grilled this top sirloin using the reverse sear method.

While the top sirloin was on the grill, I put the remaining marinade on the stove. Once it came to a simmer, I turned down the heat. Now, I had a sauce for my steak! I served this top sirloin along side some crinkle cut sweet potato fries!
