...Chimichurri Steak

There are some purists that say a perfectly seasoned and grilled steak needs no sauce. I on the other hand think that the right condiment can really enhance and compliment the flavour of your meat. A great example is the Argentinian chimichurri sauce made from parsley, garlic, vinegar and olive oil. My version uses fresh cilantro, lemon instead of vinegar and a touch of honey for a sweet, tangy and herbaceous sauce. 

- 1 bunch of fresh cilantro
- 2 cloves of garlic, peeled and chopped
- juice and zest of one large lemon
- 1 tsp of honey
- 2/3 cup of extra virgin olive oil (adjust the consistency depending on your tastes)

1) Simply blend all the ingredients in a food processor and season with salt

2) Serve with a grilled steak.  Be sure to use the sauce as soon as possible; the taste of the herbs are not as fresh the next day.
