Steak with Chimichurri Sauce, baked yukon potato, okra and tomatoes
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. Recipe serves 4.
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.
Rating: Well, we licked the sauce bowl clean if that tells you anything :) Add it to our list of favorites!!
