Steak with Chimichurri Sauce

Submitted by Denise Walburg



  • 2 12-ounce sirloin steaks or NY strip steaks
  • sea salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste
  • Fustini's Grilling Rub
  • 1/2 cup + more for brushing Fustini's Chipotle olive oil
  • 1 cup packed fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves
  • 1/2 cup packed fresh cilantro leaves
  • 1 tablespoon shallot, coarsely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin1
  • 1 tablespoon fresh oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 2 tablespoons Fustini's Jalapeno Lime balsamic


Step 1. 

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Remove steaks from the refrigerator and pat dry with paper towels.  Rub both sides of the steak with olive oil.  Season with salt and pepper and Grilling Rub.  Let the steaks stand at room temperature for 30 minutes.

Step 2. 

Preheat a large, heavy-bottom, oven-safe skillet and set over medium-high heat.  Carefully add the steaks and sear, about 2 minutes per side.  Transfer the pan to the oven and cook until the desired doneness is reached, 6-8 minutes for medium rare.  Transfer steaks to a cutting board and tent loosely with foil.

Step 3. 

In the bowl of a food processor, combine parsley, cilantro, 1/2 cup olive oil, shallot, garlic, cumin, oregano, red pepper flakes and vinegar.  Pulse until herbs are finely chopped, stopping occasionally to scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed.  Transfer chimichurri sauce to a medium bowl and taste for salt and pepper.

Serve: slice steaks crosswise into 1/2 inch slices, drizzle with chimichurri sauce.

Customer Reviews

  1. Scumptious!

    I like this method of finishing the steak in the oven. It creates a very tender and juicy steak. This Chimichurri sauce explodes with flavor- just LOVE it. I put leftover sauce over cooked potatoes for a quick potato salad,too.
