Sometimes all you want is just a classic steak dinner, with a simple iceberg salad and a beverage. Of course, we can’t help but give it a bit of a twist! For our Steak with Chimichurri Sauce, we give the steak just a hint of spice by rubbing it with a little cumin and coriander, then serve it with chimichurri, an Argentinian condiment that combines fresh parsley and oregano with garlic, olive oil, lemon juice and just a touch of cayenne.
