Yet again

Monday night, I gave a skirt steak a rub down with garlic powder, onion powder, cajun spices and a little ground chili powder.  I made another version of my obsession - chimichurri.  The flavors melded together so well that I caught Michael licking his plate clean!  Seriously, this sauce was an attack of the senses, it was so so good!  And the new food processor had the sauce made in like, 2 seconds - how fabulous is that???

 

Newest Chimichurri recipe

1.5 cups of italian flat leaf parsley (leaves only)

1 cup of cilantro (leaves only)

leaves of one long sprig of oregano

8 garlic cloves

several dashes of red pepper flakes

1 teaspoon of kosher salt

~10 jerks of freshly ground pepper

zest of one lemon

juice of 2 lemons

pulse the above in a food processor - while pulsing, add extra virgin olive oil.  i may have added .5 to .75 cups of olive oil.  you want a nice smooth consistency.

 

This is a really great sauce.  Next, I'm going to steal the idea from BLT Steak and try adding in a little distilled vinegar and diced shallots to the above.  That may just be the ultimate chimchurri!  Oh BTW, I also boiled potatoes on Monday night - and I didn't drop any on my toes!!!!!  Score!!!  (This sauce I made was so good that we drizzled - no, we doused, our potatoes with it and soaked up any remaining lingering bits of the sauce with sourdough biscuits. It's that good!)  You simply must try this sauce!!  And let me know if you like it.
