:: Chimichurri Steak Wednesday ::

A couple of weeks ago, some friends and I went for a steak night and I was introduced to an ermaaazing flavour explosion in my mouth..... Ladies and Gentlemen, I introduce you to *Chimichurri*, My new favourite steak sauce. This beautiful, zingy, fresh, green Argentinean sauce brings alive summer. I can give or take peppercorn sauce and béarnaise but give me a vibrant bowl of this zingy sauce and I am yours.

The sauce brings alive the rare grass fed sirloin. Served with a simple salad, it's my new favourite healthy summer dish.

This dish takes approx. 20 minutes from start to plate. It so simple you have to ask yourself if you are missing something. I quickly browsed the web for a recipe and merged a BBC Good Food and The Londoner recipe to come up with mine.

For two people you will need:

:: 2 grass fed organic sirloins
:: bunch of parsley
:: handful of oregano
:: 2 tbsp white wine vinegar
:: 2 garlic cloves
:: 1/2 tsp chilli flakes
:: a really good glug of olive oil
:: salad

// In a magimix, blitz up your parsley, oregano and garlic until finely chopped.

// pour in your olive oil, vinegar, salt, pepper and chilli flakes and continue to blitz until you have a vivid green sauce.

// Whilst your sauce is blitzing away pop your steaks onto a hot griddle pan and cook to your liking ( I like mine rare verging on blue).

// Rest your steak and make your salad.

// Slice up and drizzle the chimichurri. Yums.
