Grilled Steak W/Chimichurri Sauce

Chimichurri is a sauce used for grilled meat. It is originally from Argentina but is also used in Uruguay.


Chimichurri can be used on lamb, chicken, seafood, but is very popular on a nice cut of flank, hangar, or shirt steak as these three are quick and easy to grill outside or indoors.


Chimichurri is made from finely chopped parsley, minced garlic, olive oil, oregano, and white or red wine vinegar. Additional flavorings such as cilantro, coriander, paprika, cumin, thyme, lemon, and bay leaf may be included. There is also a red version of tomato and red bell pepper may also be added. Chimichurri can also be used as a marinade for grilled meat. Chimichurri is available bottled or dehydrated for preparation by mixing with oil and water.


1/2 cup red wine vinegar
1 teaspoon kosher salt plus more
3-4 garlic cloves, thinly sliced or minced
1 shallot, finely chopped
1 Fresno chile or red jalapeño, finely chopped
2 cups minced fresh cilantro
1 cup minced fresh flat-leaf parsley
1/3 cup finely chopped fresh oregano
3/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil




Pulse the garlic and onion in the food processor until finely chopped. Add the parsley and/or cilantro, and oregano if using, crushed red pepper flakes and pulse briefly, until finely chopped.


Transfer the mixture to a separate bowl. Add the olive oil, lime juice, and vinegar, and stir. Adding the liquid ingredients once your done with the blender or food processor gives the chimichurri the correct texture, as you don’t want the herbs to be puree completely. You will appreciate the texture if you make it this way.




Remove 1/2 cup chimichurri to a small bowl, season with salt to taste, and reserve as sauce. Put meat in a glass, stainless-steel, or ceramic dish. or Ziploc bag and add remaining marinade. Cover and chill for at least 3 hours or overnight.
Remove meat from marinade, pat dry, and grill.


Spoon reserved sauce over grilled meat.

About Dish With Clarissa

Clarissa Ellis grew up learning to cook with her mom. In a time where traditional home-cooked food was going out of style, Clarissa learned to love and make those simple 'comfort foods' and family favorites. As she grew - and her mom got busier with long work hours, Clarissa supported her mom by taking over most of the cooking duties around the home. By the time Clarissa started high school - she had absorbed her mother's approach to traditional, homestyle Italian dishes; and thanks to So Cal's great weather year round... a love of cooking on the grill. Fast forward 30 years and Clarissa has never stopped cooking. She continued to explore food, learning more from So Cal's amazing cultural variety, trying things out on her family and her friends... and always learning. Never content to merely cook a good meal, Clarissa developed the habit of talking sharing her ideas with family, friends and coworkers. After a lifetime of learning and experimenting, Clarissa's love affair with traditional Italian cooking, and 'comfort foods' has grown into a robust, creative and cross-cultural approach to cooking that still manages to remain 'accessible' to the rest of us. Now Clarissa brings her experience and her approach online through her blog - giving all of us a chance give ourselves, our friends and our family the benefits of a lifetime of passion and joy in cooking simply great meals.
