Paleo Chimichurri Steak

Paleo Chimichurri Steak

Paleo Chimichurri Steak – Spring means green! All sorts of shades of green, grass green, yellow green, kelly green and forest green (to name a few). And it is a great change from the drab colors of winter. The same is true in the kitchen! Spring means that the plates coming out of my kitchen are once again full of a variety of colorful greens from the fresh herbs and vegetables.

Once March hits, I can barely wait to get the first of the spring herbs. The cold tolerant herbs like cilantro and parsley are the first to come to market and that calls for a batch of Chimichurri. This Argentinian sauce is delicious, simple and goes perfect on steak, new potatoes,  chicken, tomatoes, or … well just about anything.! My personal favorite is on a grilled sirloin steak.

Ingredients

Steak

  • 6 oz sirloin steaks
  • 3 Tbsp fresh cracked black pepper
  • 3 Tbsp of salt (I prefer kosher)

Chimichurri 

  • 1/4 bunch of parsley
  • 1/2 bunch of cilantro
  • 6-8 basil leaves (I usually only use this in the summer when it is fresh)
  • 1 Tbsp of dried oregano
  • 1 Tbsp of cumin
  • 2-3 cloves of garlic
  • 1/4 sweet pepper (yellow, orange or red)
  • 1 green onion
  • Juice of 1 lemon (or 3 Tbsp red wine vinegar)
  • 1 Tbsp of crushed red pepper flake (in the summer I use 1 whole cayenne)
  • 1 tsp of salt
  • 3 Tbsp of olive oil

Directions

  1. Preheat grill or cast iron skillet to 375 F.
  2. Generously season both sides of the steak with salt and pepper.
  3. Grill steak 3-4 minutes on each side or until desired doneness.
  4. Meanwhile, combine all the Chimichurri ingredients in a food processor or blender until smooth.
  5. Let steak rest 5 minutes once it is off heat.
  6. Plate and drizzle with Chimichurri. Serve with some fresh aspargus or greens!
