Sirloin Strip with Chimichurri

My klutziness reared its ugly head this morning. I tripped over something, went flying, and now my left foot is a little swollen (toes are tingly... that can't be good), and three of the fingers on my left hand are a bit achy. Oy. What a goof. Needless to say (but I'll say it anyway, for blogsakes), I won't be doing any cooking today. Good thing I had a wonderful meal last night!!

I love chimichurri sauce. It's flavorful without overpowering whatever it's added to. I especially adore it over steaks. Last night I used it to top a petite sirloin strip that I grilled briefly (4 -5 minutes on each side). I also sliced a rather large Yukon gold potato, tossed the slices with some of the chimichurri, and grilled them, as well, until they were golden and tender. Oven-roasted asparagus rounded out the meal. Delicious!

Chimichurri

4 cloves of garlic, minced
1/2 jalapeno, minced
1/2 lime, juiced
3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/2 cup finely chopped Italian parsley
1/2 cup finely chopped cilantro
1 teaspoon kosher salt
Combine garlic, jalapeno and lime in a small bowl. Whisk in vinegar and olive oil. Stir in parsley and cilantro. Add salt, cover and let stand 2 hours to allow the flavors to marry.

Lori, hope your foot and hand are better this morning and you didn't wake up with any additional aches and pains.

I'll have to try your version of chimichurri sauce too. Years ago we had an Argentinian neighbour "Julia" who introduced us to Chimichurri sauce.
