Normally my husband is in charge of steaks around our house. But, when I saw this recipe in my most recent Taste of Home, I decided to give it a try. WOW...it is GOOD!!! Needless to say, we devoured this meal!! Trust me, if you make it, your family will devour it too!
Grilled Steaks with Cilantro Sauce
2 cups fresh parsley leaves
2 cups fresh cilantro leaves
1 cup fresh mint leaves
8 garlic cloves, chopped
1 3/4 tsp kosher salt, divided
1/2 tsp plus 3/4 tsp fresh ground pepper, divided
2 cups olive oil
2/3 cup red wine vinegar
2 tbsp lemon juice
1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
4 lbs. beef flat iron steaks or top sirloin steaks (1 in. thick) ***I didn't see flat iron steaks, so I asked at the counter (at Sprouts) and they cut them for me.
***I halved this recipe. Even halved, it made a ton of cilantro sauce. I think I will 1/4 it next time.
Place herbs, garlic, 1 tsp salt and 1/2 tsp pepper in a food processor; pulse until herbs are chopped. Gradually add oil, vinegar, lemon juice and pepper flakes, processing just until blended. Sprinkle steaks with remaining salt and pepper. Grill, covered, over medium heat for 6-8 minutes on each side or until meat reaches desired doneness. Cut steaks into 1/4 in slices and serve with sauce.
Seriously easy and seriously delicious!!! We decided these would be great in tortillas or in a salad too. Enjoy! :)
