Hints and tips:

Try with barbecued fish or chicken

Pick the leaves from the parsley, enough to fill 1 cup, and place in a food processor with the oregano, garlic, vinegar, chilli flakes, salt and pepper. Process to chop finely. Add the olive oil and process, scraping down the sides to include all the herbs, until well combined.

Remove steaks from refrigerator and allow to sit for 10 minutes to come to room temperature.

Heat a fry pan or barbecue to high heat. Season steaks with sea salt and pepper. Add oil to pan and place steaks, avoid overcrowding by cooking 2 at a time. For a 2cm steak (just over 1/2 inch) cook 5 – 7 minutes each side for medium (pink) or 7 – 8 minutes each side for well done. Remove from fry pan and rest, covered in a warm place for 5 minutes.

Serve steak with Chimichurri sauce.

Note: You need about 1 cup of parsley leaves. 1 decent sized bunch should yield about 1 cup.
