Steak with Chipotle-Lime Chimichurri Recipe

Steak gets a flavor kick from chimichurri. This piquant all-purpose herb sauce is so versatile, it complements most any grilled meat, poultry or fish. —Laureen Pittman, Riverside, California
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:8 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 cups fresh parsley leaves
  • 1-1/2 cups fresh cilantro leaves
  • 1/2 medium red onion, coarsely chopped
  • 1 to 2 chipotle peppers in adobo sauce
  • 5 garlic cloves, sliced
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup white wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon grated lime peel
  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • 3 teaspoons dried oregano
  • 1-1/4 teaspoons salt, divided
  • 3/4 teaspoon pepper, divided
  • 2 pounds beef flat iron steaks or 2 beef top sirloin steaks (1 pound each)

Directions

  • 1. For chimichurri, place the first five ingredients in a food processor; pulse until finely chopped. Add oil, vinegar, lime peel, lime juice, oregano, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper; process until blended. Transfer to a bowl; refrigerate, covered, until serving.
  • 2. Sprinkle steaks with the remaining salt and pepper. Grill, covered, over medium heat 5-8 minutes on each side or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a thermometer should read 145°; medium, 160°; well-done, 170°). Let stand 5 minutes before slicing. Serve with chimichurri. Yield: 8 servings.

"Very tasty, especially if you like a little spice. I would recommend cutting down the Chimichurri though. It makes way more than you'll need."

"Tried this out over the weekend...it was very good. Yes, there is alot of garlic...you could cut back a little if you don't want it as spicy. The sauce is delicious. I served the steak with a zucchini-cilantro salad & jalapeno potato gratin...a very elegant tasting 'latin inspired' meal!"
