Steak chimichurri with grilled garlic bread and grilled tomatoes


1 1/4 lbs shoulder center steak (ranch steak) or top sirloin about 1 1/4 inches thick

1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper

Season steak and grill until desired doneness. Let sit 5 minutes and then slice into strips.

Grilled Bread:
Crusty Bread
Olive oil
Minced Garlic

Combine minced garlic and olive oil. Brush both sides of bread and grill 2-3 minutes until you have good grill marks.

 Like so.

 Grilled Tomatoes:

4 Large tomatoes
Olive oil
Salt (optional)

Slice tomatoes and squeeze gently to remove some of the juices. Brush with olive oil and grill until warm, but still retaining shape (about 10 minutes)

 Chimichurri sauce:
1/3 cup packed fresh Cilantro
1/3 cup packed fresh Italian Parsley
3 Tbs. Olive Oil
1 Lg Clove Garlic
1 Tbs Red Wine Vinegar
1 Tbs Water
1/4 tsp Red Pepper Flakes
1/4 tsp salt

Mix all ingredients in a food processor. Spoon over cooked steak.
