Grilled Steak Sliders with Chimichurri Sauce
The chimichurri sauce recipe yields about two cups of sauce.
For the steak
- 2 steaks or 1½ – 2 lbs. beef (any cut, like NY Strip, Rib eye, flank and skirt steak; grill your favorite)
- your favorite dry rub steak seasoning like Montreal Steak seasoning from McCormick, or Stubb’s Steak Spice Seasoning OR a mixture of salt, freshly cracked pepper, minced garlic and a dash of paprika
- Apply your dry rub steak seasoning to both sides of each steak. Press in gently, wrap and place in the refrigerator for at least one hour.
- Remove from refrigerator and grill each steak to desired level (medium rare, medium well etc). Slice thin and set aside.
For the chimichurri sauce
- 1 tsp red pepper flake
- 0.5 tsp freshly ground black pepper
- 2 tsp sea salt
- 5 Tbsp red wine vinegar
- 0.75 cup good quality olive oil + more if needed
- 2 Tbsp fresh oregano leaves (OR 2 teaspoons dried oregano)
- 4 garlic cloves
- 1 cup fresh cilantro
- 2 cup firmly packed fresh flat-leaf parsley, trimmed with the stems cut off
- Combine ingredients from the parsley to the oregano in a food processor. Pulse and process until desired consistency is reached; usually several pulses. Place in a small bowl and set aside.
- In a separate bowl, mix and combine the olive oil, vinegar, salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes. Pour over the parsley mixture and mix together well. Taste and adjust any seasonings as needed.
For the sliders
- pea shoots or micro greens
- spring mix greens
- toasted Slider buns; highly recommend brioche slider buns if you can find some
- Dijon or stone ground mustard (optional for an additional kick)
- If using, apply some Dijon or stone ground mustard to your toasted slider bottom bun, lay down your greens and pea shoots and top with a few slices of your grilled steak. Top with the chimichurri sauce and the top side of the toasted slider bun.
- Repeat with the remaining buns and enjoy with a glass of Cabernet Sauvignon!
