Argentine Rib-eye with Chimichurri


Post by traveltoad » Fri Aug 01, 2008 4:44 pm

* This recipe is not my own, I stole it from the Summer 2008 issue of Overland Journal. *

Rib-eye: Choice or Prime, aged for three to four days in the refrigerator. Add liberal amounts of sea salt to both sides. Grill over a hot bed of coals and mesquite chips (if necessary, soaked in water). Typically five to seven minutes per side, turn only once.

Chimichurri Preparation:
1 bunch of fresh parsley, minced
4 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
Juice from one lemon wedge
1 teaspoon coarse black pepper (fresh ground preferred)
1/2 teaspoon sea salt

Mix contents in a bowl and let sit a few hours in the fridge for the flavors to bland and enhance. Use as a topping for steaks after they are cooked.

My own notes and comments:
*I did not use the mesquite chips and it was great without them.
*I prepared the Chimichurri at home and left it in the Engel for the trip to that evening’s camp site.
*After turning the steaks put some of the Chimichurri on top of the steaks. After removing from the fire put a bit more on and cover them in foil to rest for a few minutes.
*The left over steak was sliced thinly and put back into the Engel. Steak slices, Chimichurri and some lettuce wrapped in a tortilla made a great (and quick) trail lunch the next day.

Sounds great Aaron. I want one of those next trip!

How come I only got an egg salad sandwich from you for lunch on the last trip?
But of course, it was the best egg salad I ever had and I would not have had time for any lunch otherwise!
See you on the Trail!

How's this for coincidence? This recipe was mentioned on the last net on cooking. Also mentioned that night was the cooking website A couple days ago, I went to the website for the firt time and looked under most popular recipes. There on the page was a different version of this recipe. :D
