Killer steak sauce (pseudo chimichurri)

Every steak can use this killer recipe! which in turn, it is not a true recipe, but more of a combination of flavors that you can adjust to your own taste. It goes especially well with flank steak or skirt steak. Chicken, pork, and fish also love this sauce.

  • Parsley or Cilantro (aka Coriander) or both. Lots of it!
  • Garlic. 2 or 3 cloves.
  • Cumin powder (or seeds). About half a teaspoon.
  • Red Pepper flakes.
  • Olive oil. A lot (think pesto)
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Optional: white vinegar

Warm up your olive oil and put the pepper flakes and cumin. Just warm up, so the oil gets infused with the spiciness and flavor of the ingredients. DO NOT FRY THEM … just warm it up. Once happy with the flavor, just leave it to cool down on the side. ( Experiment: put garlic on the oil as well, until soft. Cooked garlic tastes sweet )

In the meantime, chop the parsley/cilantro and garlic real small. Mash them together. Add salt and pepper to taste. When the oil is cool (you don’t want to cook the parsley/cilantro) mix it all together. Whisk it. Eat it! It is going to be AWESOME! I promise!
