Steak and Chimichurri Sauce

4 years ago when I was in Aspen over the summer for my first ever Aspen Food and Wine Festival, I learned how to cook the perfect steak and my life was forever changed. Learning how to cook a good steak was a kitchen skill I really wanted to master. And what better way to learn than then from the master himself. Tim Love demonstrated how to cook the perfect steak and I pretty much use this method every time I cook a steak no matter the kind and without fail it works every time.

For this particular recipe I chose a Ribeye because its one of the better cuts, with more marble and fat, and also it really has the most flavor. Ribeyes are a great choice and sometimes you can get away with just buying one for two people because the cuts come so big sometimes, you can share.

Whether you want to eat steak and potatoes, or put this steak in a taco, ribeyes are the perfect base. To keep my meal on the healthier side I did the Ribeye with Chimichurri inside Romaine Lettuce Cups and had a side of corn and black bean salad.

Steak and Chimichurri Sauce

Ingredients:

1 Ribeye Steak

Salt

Pepper

Garlic Powder

3 Butter

Chimichurri Sauce: click for recipe

Directions:

Step 1: Pat the steak dry with a paper towel, this will allow your spices to stick nicely to it. Season each side of the steak generously.

Step 2: On medium heat, heat up 3 tablespoons of butter in a cast iron skillet. Once the butter is melted turn the heat to medium high and wait 30 seconds.

Step 3: Place the steak in the skillet and sear for 3 and a half minutes on each side. This allows for a nice crispy crust on the outside.

Step 4: Take the steak off the heat and set it on a plate or cutting board so it can rest.

Step 5: Let the steak rest up for one hour.

Step 6: Start the chimichurri sauce and put in the fridge. While the steak rests and the chimichurri sauce flavors marinate, either relax, do the dishes, or finish the rest of your dinner.

**Note: A Cast iron skillet is the preferred dish to cook the steak in because 1. I feel like it creates a better crust but 2. It is oven safe. If you don’t have a cast iron skillet use a regular pan and then transfer the steak to an oven safe dish. And when you’re ready to cook, put it in the oven.

Step 7: Turn your oven on to Broil. Wait one minute before putting the steak in the oven, and cook your steak 8-10 minutes. 8 minutes for more medium rare (really pink) and 10 minutes for little to no pink.
