TV Dinner: Gaucho SteakPosted: Updated:
With the first big warm weather holiday of the year upon us, our favorite chef is turning south of the border for a delicious steak recipe.
Chef Chris Manning made Argentine gaucho steak with chimichuri sauce Friday morning, aided and abetted by 7 News anchors Les Shockley and Beth Hall
The first item of business? Seasoning for the steak.
Here's the chef's recipe:
1 tsp. cayenne pepper
1 tsp. granulated garlic
1 tsp. granulated onion
1 tsp. paprika
2 tsp. salt
Make sure you take your steak out of the 'fridge and season it 15-20 minutes before cooking; Chef Manning will tell you the meat will cook more evenly.
Now, the sauce:
1 cup, lightly packed parsley
1/2 cup, lightly packed fresh oregano leaves
5 garlic cloves, chopped
1 small shallot, peeled and chopped
1 green onion, chopped
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. ground black pepper
3 pinch, crushed red chiles
3/4 cup, olive oil
juice of half a lemon
2 tbsp. sherry vinegar
Place the first eight ingredients in a food processor and pulse until minced. Add the remaining ingredients and pulse until mixed thoroughly. Use as sauce for the steak - or a marinade for chicken or pork.
Pair with Coyote Moon's Casa Papa red wine.
