Rib Eye Steaks with Spicy Chimichurri

Steak for dinner is always a treat, especially with this spicy, tangy Argentinian sauce. “Frenched” doesn’t refer to the country of origin, but rather the exposed bone of the rib eye.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup chopped flat-leaf parsley
  • 4 garlic cloves, peeled and roughly chopped
  • 2 small Fresno chiles, seeded and chopped
  • 2 Tbsp. chopped oregano
  • ½ cup olive oil

  • ½ tsp. kosher salt
  • ½ ground black pepper
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil

Directions

  • Make the Chimichurri: Place all the ingredients in a blender or food processor and purée until it forms a coarsely ground paste. Set aside to let flavors meld.
  • Grill the steaks: Season the steaks with salt and ground black pepper and rub with oil.
  • Heat grill until hot. Add steaks and grill until both sides are brown and steak is medium rare, about 8–10 minutes total.
