Skirt Steak with Chimichurri Sauce

I decided a couple of weekends ago while Trevor and I were having a picnic (with cheese from the Cheese Shop) to have red meat for dinner.  I usually do not eat very much red meat, however I was craving steak!  One of my favorite ways to eat steak is with a good amount of Chimichurri sauce.  So here we go with my version of a steak dinner (aka lots of veggies along side)!

Roasted Tomatoes and Onions, Zucchini Fritters, & Skirt Steak with Chimichurri Sauce

Roasted Tomatoes and Onions


Ingredients:
1 Box Cherry Tomatoes
1 Large Red Onion
3 tbsp Olive Oil
Salt 
Pepper

Directions:
Cut red onions into 1/4" rings.  Place whole cherry tomatoes and red onion rings onto a baking sheet.   Pour olive oil  over the vegetables.  Sprinkle salt and pepper to taste.  Mix vegetables.  Place in oven at 350 degrees and bake for approximately 20 minutes or until onions look translucent and the tomatoes are splitting.


Zucchini Fritters


Information:
I usually do not fry foods and thus used a recipe from Bon Appetit.  The fritter turned out to be fairly soggy.  I think next time I will make the fritters thinner and serve them immediately to prevent them from becoming soggy.  Also for the Green Goddess Sauce I used half mayonnaise and half sour cream to reduce the fat and calories.  See below for the link.

Skirt Steak with Chimichurri Sauce

Ingredients:
1.25 lb Skirt Steak
Olive Oil
2 tbsp Red wine vinegar
1 lime
1 bunch Mint
1 bunch Basil
1 bunch Flat Leaf Parsley
2 Large Garlic Cloves
Crushed Red Pepper
Salt
Pepper
Mushrooms (optional, I needed to use them so I added them to the dish)

Directions:
Chimicurri Sauce:  Place whole washed leaves of mint, basil, and flat leaf parsley in the processor.  I usually add one handful of mint, 1/2 bunch parsely, 1/2 bunch basil.  However, add the herbs to match your tastes.  Have fun with it!  Add the juice of one lime, red wine vinegar, and 2 peeled garlic cloves.  Add crushed red pepper, salt, and pepper to taste.  Turn processor on and add olive oil until there is a fairly runny texture (probably around 1/4 cup to 1/2 cup).  Taste and adjust as necessary.

Skirt Steak:  Use 1/4 cup of the chimichurri sauce and marinate the steak for 30 minutes.  Heat saute pan over medium high heat and add 1 tbsp of oil.  Place steak in pan and sear on both sides.  Approximately 4-5 minutes per side.  Saute mushrooms (if you like) and place over steak.  Serve steak with a good amount of chimichurri sauce or to taste.
