There’s nothing like a big piece of meat grilled on a summer afternoon, all juicy and salty, with a lovely tangy sauce on the side to complement it. The sauce in this Grilled Hanger Steak with Cilantro Mint Chimichurri recipe from Sommer> (TK member aspicyperspective) was just so wonderful that I would eat it with any meat I put on the grill. And it’s such a wonderful thing to make in advance and have on hand; it will dress any dish up.

You will need: hanger steak, salt and pepper, fresh cilantro, fresh mint, garlic, red wine vinegar (I used sherry vinegar and it was great), ground cumin, honey, crushed red pepper, and olive oil.

Get the grill nice and hot. With a thin steak you’re only going to give it a quick sear so the grill will need to be sizzling. Season the steaks with salt and pepper on both sides.

Sear them on both sides, about 2-minutes on each for medium rare. And by the way, you can use a skillet instead of a grill if that’s what you have. It will still be delicious!

Once you give them a quick sear on both sides, remove from the heat and cover with foil to rest for 5-10 minutes so the juiciness stays within the meat.

Puree it until mostly smooth, but still full of lumps, herbs and flavor.
