Method

  1. To make the chimichurri, blitz the parsley, oregano, garlic, shallot and chilli flakes in a food processor or chop very finely by hand. Add 2 tbsp of the olive oil, the lemon juice, vinegar and some seasoning, and pulse to combine everything to a saucy consistency.

  2. Rub the remaining oil and a little seasoning into the steaks. Heat a griddle or frying pan and cook the steaks for 2-3 mins on each side or until done to your liking. Rest for a few mins, then spoon over the sauce and serve with fries and salad.

Amazing, love this sauce with a juicy sirloin and chips. I always add a bit of ghost chilli to give it a bit of an extra kick, can't beat it!

Utterly fantastic sauce! Had with fillet steak, homemade oven chips and salad for NYE dinner. The sauce is really nice with the steak but also lovely for dipping crispy chips in too.

This is a really great sauce, spicy, flavoursome and fresh too. it went really well with the steaks, but I'm sure would be good with lamb or fish too. Will definitely be making it again.
