Chimichurri Steak Fajitas

Afternoon friends! I hope you all are having a great day. Last night I made steak fajitas for the family. Fajitas are always a favorite, and I usually stick to the same combination of flavors to marinate the meat (you can find it here). But I decided to change things up when I spied this lovely bottle of Chimichurri sauce in the fridge.

Chimichurri is a green sauce used for grilled meat, originally from Argentina. It is made of finely-chopped parsley, minced garlic, vegetable oil, oregano, and white vinegar. You could easily make our own, but I received this bottle in my Argentina Try the Word food box. If you have never heard of Try the World and you are an adventurous eater who likes to try new flavors, I would highly recommend getting a subscription!

I added salt, pepper, a couple tablespoons of Worcestershire sauce, and  about a half a cup of the Chimichurri sauce to a large zip top bag. I added the meat and let marinate for about 30 minutes.

I  grilled each side, about 6-8 minutes per side for medium rare. Then I let the steak rest about 10 minutes before carving. I had my husband cut the steak across the grain into thin diagonal slices. img_4260

I also cooked up some veggies (peppers, onions, and mushrooms) to add to the fajitas. I added a bit of salt, pepper, and 1 tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce to the veggies as they sauteed, about 15 minutes. img_4261

While the meat rested, I warmed up some small tortillas. With the steak and veggies, I added some tomatoes, cheese, lettuce, sour cream, and a bit of hot sauce. Delicious!
