One of the best things served at La La’s Grill is the chimichurri sauce. I could eat bowls & bowls of that delicious sauce with bread. I have been wanting to try making the sauce at home and decided to cook myself a simple dinner: steak with chimichurri sauce. I like to season my steak with some olive oil, salt & pepper. Then I sear each side in an oven proof pan with melted butter and stick in the oven to finish cooking for about 7 min in 350 degrees.
I’ve seen on cooking shows that you are supposed to cover meat with foil & let the meat rest but I was too hungry and couldn’t wait. I sliced that steak right away and topped it with this yummy chimichurri sauce. This meal is perfect for one– you can also make any side dish to go with it– a salad, roasted potatoes or veggies. I was pretty content with just the meat & sauce 🙂
