Steak with Chimichurri Sauce Recipe

Whether you’re watching your weight or just being health-concious, you can still enjoy beef every now and then. Choosing a lean, high-quality, grass-fed cut doesn’t necessarily mean you have to sacrifice flavor. Our tangy chimichurri sauce is the perfect complement to a rich steak, and it keeps the meal light. We added arugula to our chimichurri for some extra nutrients and an herby finish.
