strip steak with a chimichurri sauce

we had jake and sam over for dinner last night and i made a yummy strip steak with chimichurri sauce inspired by Food for every season, caprese salad, celery root puree and roasted asparagus.. super yummy.. i initially was going to make mushrooms in a cream sauce (i will give you this recipe also its super yummy) but the last time i made those sam got the flu the next day and while she doesn't 'blame" the mushrooms she prefers not to eat them any time soon.. which i don't blame her.. so i decided to change up the menu at the last minute and went with the chimichurri sauce.. cause umm that's how i roll.. ha ha..




strip steak 
prep time: 10 minutes
cooking time: 15 minutes
servings:  4


ingredients:

4 sirloin strip steaks
salt and pepper to taste

preheat your grill to high (we cooked these over apple wood in the charcoal grill but usually cook them on my gas bbq grill) cook the steaks to the desired doneness you prefer.. we like ours medium rare so about 6-8 minutes per side.. remove from heat and let sit for about 5-7 minutes before slicing..

4 tblsp. red wine vinegar
1/2 cup olive oil

i put everything in my blender (the garlic first) then blended until smooth. (if you don't want a smooth sauce chop your parsley and mince your garlic and mix well)..
