Steak with chimichurri

  • serves 2
  • Easy

Chimichurri is a punchy South American salsa made from fresh coriander, red onion, vinegar and spices. Try it in this quick and easy steak supper for 2, ready in less than 15 minutes



  • fillet steaks 2, about 150g each
  • olive oil


  • paprika 2 tsp
  • ground cumin 1 tsp
  • garlic 2 cloves, finely chopped
  • red onion ½, finely chopped
  • red wine vinegar 2 tbsp
  • coriander 1 bunch, chopped


  • Step 1

    Heat a barbecue or chargrill (griddle) pan until hot. Mix the chimichurri ingredients, adding enough olive oil to make the mixture spoonable, and season with salt. Brush the steaks with a little olive oil and season well. Cook the steaks for 2 minutes on each side and then carefully press on top to see how cooked they are. They’ll feel very soft when rare, so keep cooking them if you’d like them medium or well done. Serve the steaks with the chimichurri and salad, chips or potato wedges.
