steak chimichurri

I'm a big fan of steak. No, I don't really like it because red meat for some reason just doesn't taste very good to me... but I'm a fan of the protein and iron that steak is packed with. This recipe is also loaded with antioxidants and doesn't have much sodium at all since it is topped with cilantro and parsley. As usual, the more spices and herbs added, the less salt necessary to make the dish taste good. This recipe only takes a few minutes... 3-4 minutes per side for the steaks on the grill and during that time, you can make the topping for them so that's pretty much 8 minutes! Now tell me you don't have time to make dinner! That's right, you can't.

Sauce: (this will be enough for about 4 steaks)
1/2 cup cilantro
1/2 cup parsley
3 T olive oil
3 cloves garlic
1 T red wine vinegar
1 T water
1/2 tsp. crushed red pepper
1/4 tsp salt

Blend all sauce ingredients together in food processor and put on top of steaks, once steaks are off the grill.

Season steaks with salt and pepper and grill for about 3-4 minutes per side, or to desired doneness.
