What could be better for dear old dad on Father’s Day than a nice, juicy steak? Not much, except a juicy steak drizzled with a zesty sauce.
Skirt steak is reasonably priced. And, depending on the size, you can feed up to four people on one steak! Adding the sauce just brings another level of fabulous flavor.
For Chimichurri Topped Skirt Steak you will need…
salt and pepper
4 garlic cloves
1 bunch fresh parsley leaves, stemmed
1 bunch fresh cilantro leaves, stemmed
1 jalapeno, seeded
1 c. olive oil
1/2 c. red wine vinegar
2 tbsp. onion flakes
2 tbsp. lime juice
1 tsp. dried oregano
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
Start by rubbing the steak with oil, lime juice, salt and pepper on both sides. Then, get it on a hot grill over medium heat. It is a thin cut of meat, so it will cook fairly fast—about five minutes on each side.
For the sauce, combine all of the measured ingredients in a food processor or blender. Blend until everything is broken down and you have a thick sauce. Pour the chimichurri over the meat before servings.
This steak and sauce are refreshing and flavorful. Even better, the sauce will keep for up to two weeks in a sealed container in the refrigerator and is also tasty on chicken and fish. Happy Father’s Day, and from all of us at Texas Table Top, enjoy!
