Steak and Potatoes

Why? Because doggone it…sometimes, you just need a good steak and potato meal! In the Figge household, we typically consume a plethora of lean white meat. I have nothing against red meat; it’s just not something I crave all the time. So when I do decide to make steak for dinner, I make sure it’s a darn good one! This meal offers a ton of fresh ingredients with a few convenience menu items. My motto is, if you can make at least 75-85% of your meal/plate from natural ingredients, then it’s perfectly fine to use some convenient food items. In addition to the steak and potatoes, I also served up a fresh salad using a ton of veggies from the farmers’ market.

Ingredients
  1. Steak with Chimichurri Sauce
  2. • 2 lbs of skirt steak or flank steak
  3. • 1 cup flat leaf Italian parsley
  4. • ½ cup cilantro leaves
  5. • 3 garlic cloves
  6. • 2 tsp fresh oregano
  7. • 1 large shallot bulb, quartered
  8. • 1 ½ tbsp balsamic vinegar
  9. • 2 tsp lemon juice
  10. • Salt and pepper to taste
  11. • 4-6 tbsp olive oil
  12. Oven Baked Seasoned Potatoes
  13. • 3-5 lbs of red and yellow potatoes, quartered
  14. • 1 packet of Lipton Onion dry soup mix
  15. • Olive oil
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 450*F. Place cut potatoes in a large Ziploc bag and add soup mix. Add 2-3 tbsp of olive oil and close bag. Gently mix oil and soup mix with potatoes so they are evenly seasoned. Line a baking pan with foil and non-stick spray. Pour contents of bag onto pan and bake for 45-50 minutes until potatoes are crisp-tender. Serve with steak and salad and enjoy!
  2. To make the Chimichurri sauce, blend all ingredients (parsley, cilantro, garlic, oregano, shallot, vinegar, lemon juice and olive oil) in a food processor. Season with salt and pepper. You can vary the amount of olive oil you use to manipulate the texture of the sauce.
  3. Slice flank steak into strips and place in Ziploc bag. Put in about 3 tbsp of Chimichurri sauce in bag and massage over meat. Let sit in the refrigerator for about an hour.
  4. When ready to cook, preheat your grill to medium heat. Grill meat about 4-5 minutes per side, turning once. Remove steak from grill and let sit on cutting board for a few minutes. Spoon remaining Chimichurri sauce over steak and serve.
