Skirt Steak with Chimichurri and Raosted Tomatoes
Saw this on RR the other day, but I made changes in the Chimichurri sauce. It turned out really good, and the tomatoes on the Ciabatta were delicious!
1 pound skirt steak
6 large tomatoes, cut in half & cored
6 cloves of garlic
juice of 1 lemon
bunch of cilantro
bunch of basil
bunch of sage
salt & pepper
ciabatta rolls, sliced in half and toasted or grilled
Place the tomatoes cut side down in a casserole dish. Put 5 of the cloves of garlic, skin intact, in with the tomatoes. Drizzle some olive oil, salt & pepper and toss. Bake at 500 for 30 minutes or until the tomatoes are soft and starting to brown.
For the chimichurri sauce, blend together the lemon juice, 1/2 cup olive oil, garlic, the herbs, salt & pepper. Drizzle some of the sauce over the steak and let rest at room temperature for 30 minutes. Reserve the rest of the sauce to garnish the steak.
Cook the steak on a grill about 4 minutes per side, or until preferred temp. Let it rest for 10 minutes. Take the roasted garlic and spread on the toasted rolls. Smash some of the tomatoes on top of the garlicky rolls and enjoy! You can eat it as a sandwich or open faced, like I did.
This was really, really good!!! :)
