Food Blog: Steak with Chimichurri sauce, Yukon Potato, and Tomatoe and Okra

Tuesday, October 19, 2010

Since we're counting calories, we chose a very lean cut of steak (top round). The original recipe called for Flank Steak. You can really use any cut you like. Next time I'm going to use less oil as well in the sauce. Recipe serves 4.

Chimichurri Sauce:

In a bowl, mix together:
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 Tbsp white wine vinegar
1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
3 Tbsp parsley, fresh, Italian, minced
2 Tbsp scallion(s), green parts only, minced
1 medium garlic clove(s), minced
Salt and pepper to taste


1 pound steak
1 garlic clove, peeled and smashed with side of a knife
salt and pepper to taste

Rub both sides of steak with smashed garlic clove; discard garlic.
Season steak with salt and pepper.
Grill or Broil steak for 4 minutes (less if using thin-cut)
Flip and broil on second side 3 minutes more

Thinly slice steak against grain and serve with sauce on the side.

Yukon Gold Potato: poke holes in potato and microwave for about 4 minutes (for small potato), 5-6 min for a larger potato. Yukons have a delicious flavor!

Okra with Tomatoes: Found in the frozen food section! A low-calorie filler! Just heat up and season with salt and pepper. It was tasty and UBER low on calories!

Rating: Well, we licked the sauce bowl clean if that tells you anything :) Add it to our list of favorites!! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Noms. I love okra. I am going to try Yukons. Regular russet baking potatoes are usually so big.

    Looks yummy! Not so sure about the okra...I like mine breaded and fried.

Have you tried the canned zucchini and Italian tomatoes? They are super yummy.
