  • The Prep

    • Chimichurri Sauce:

      • Combine vinegar, 1 tsp. salt, garlic, shallot, and red pepper in a medium bowl and let stand for 10 minutes. Stir in arugula, parsley, and oregano. Using a fork, whisk in oil. Set aside and spoon over grilled steak.

      Roasted Tomatoes on the vine:

      • Drizzle with olive oil, roast on a sheet pan in a 400 degree oven for 30-40 minutes

      Grilled NY Strip Steak:

      • Prepare grill (medium-high heat). Brush steaks with olive oil. Sprinkle steaks with coarse kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper. Grill steaks to desired doneness, about 5-6 minutes per side for medium-rare.
      • Allow steaks to rest for 15 minutes then cut
      • Transfer skirt steak to a cutting board and allow steaks to rest for 15 minutes.  Slice against the grain on a diagonal. Season to taste and return to serving board.  Place roasted tomatoes on the vine beside the steak, spoon half of the chimichurri atop and serve remaining sauce alongside.
      • Spoon some of warm sauce onto 6 plates, then top each with 1 steak. Spoon additional sauce over each steak. Cut bread in half on diagonal; place bread alongside steaks.
