Grilled Ribeye Steaks with Chimichurri Sauce

Grilled Ribeye Steaks with Chimichurri Sauce

My gaucho grills like no other.  Our favorite Argentine indulgence is Grilled Ribeye Steaks with Chimichurri Sauce.  Year round we grill, even if it’s 25 degrees below zero!  Yeah, you’ll find my man is bundled head to toe and firing up his beloved grill!

Most families enjoy ham or turkey for Christmas dinner, but with our California roots, we always grill.  Salmon fillets, pork tenderloin, chicken, or ribeye, our preferred steak.  In all goes well with beautiful baked potatoes and green salads.

We often top it with a chimichurri sauce, which is often called Argentine barbecue sauce.  It can be served with all kinds of meats.  Try it along side an omelet and with fajitas too.

They say, “It takes two to Tango,” and this is how we do it!

 

 

“‘The only time to eat diet food is while you’re waiting for the steak to cook.”

Gotta try it, Grilled Ribeye Steaks with Chimichurri Sauce is one of the best meals you will ever enjoy. Such a flavorful sauce, fresh and often called Argentine barbecue sauce, you'll love it!!!

Grilled Ribeye Steaks with Chimichurri Sauce

  • Fire up the grill, and plan on 10-15 minutes per side for your steaks.
  • My job is to prepare the meat.  I seasoned it with kosher salt and fresh ground pepper, because I’m going to serve them with a fresh chimichurri sauce.
  • Sear your ribeye steaks and then set the temp to low on a gas grill.
  • While the steaks are on the grill make your chimichurri sauce.  I like to use my food processor, you can use a blender too. Add all of the ingredients to your processor bowl or blender and whirl it all together.  Add it to a small bowl and serve it at room temperature.  Be sure to refrigerate any leftovers.  The sauce will keep for about 1 week.

Author:
Recipe type: Entree, Sauce
Cuisine: Argentine
Serves: 2 servings
Ingredients
Ribeye Steaks:
  • 2 ribeye steaks
  • kosher salt
  • fresh ground pepper
Chimichurri Sauce:
  • 1 large bunch Italian parsley, leaves and thinner stems only, (about a cup)
  • ½ large bunch of fresh cilantro leaves
  • 1 tablespoon fresh oregano leaves
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • ¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • ⅓ cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
Instructions
Ribeye Steaks:
  1. Preheat gas grill on medium heat.
  2. Salt and pepper your steaks as desired.
  3. Add steaks to the grill and quickly sear both sides. Reduce heat to low, and grill steaks, depending on their thickness, and how you like your steaks, 10-15 minutes per side for medium.
  4. Remove from the grill. Cover and let rest for 5 minutes before serving.
Chimichurri Sauce:
  1. Add all the ingredients in a food processor or blender. Pulse or whirl away until you have a beautiful sauce. I like to pulse mine so it's still a little chunky.
  2. Transfer to a small bowl for serving.
  3. Taste and adjust seasonings to your liking.
  4. Serve at room temperature and refrigerate any leftovers.
Notes
Sauce will keep for about a week.

    Oh my gosh! I love grilled rib eye steak. Can’t say I have tried a sauce anywhere near the Chimichurri sauce, but from the ingredients, I could almost imagine how it would taste!

    In Ireland we like our meat well and truly cremated. It makes me sad, chefs around the globe cringe when Irishmen order a steak I would say! I can’t imagine grilling for Christmas, but if the weather permits then why not?! Steak of the grill is my favorite method!

    We also love grilled meat! We seldom grill before because we still need to set up the fire. But now, my mom bought an electric one thus, we could grill almost everyday! Your recipe is something worth the try.

    Now THIS is a recipe that I can sink my teeth into ~ literally! There is little that compares to a nicely grilled steak. Tender and juicy, hot off the grill! Nothing is better! Being from Texas, we love our steaks and definitely know how to grill! We have never used a gas or electric grill. My husband can work his magic with charcoal. 😉

    This looks absolutely delicious! . We’re thinking of finally getting an outdoor grill -we put it off for the longest time because we live in Subic (a densely forested area in the Philippines), and literally have monkeys in our backyard. They kinda go ape sh*t (pardon the pun) at the smell of food, so I’ve always been afraid of provoking them. Hahaha. I’m tired of have a makeshift indoor grill though. It just doesn’t taste the same. This recipe kinda sealed the deal for me. Will brave the primates to try this one out. 😛

    We just grilled out last weekend, it was mainly burgers and chicken but I picked up a huge amount of steaks in different cuts for the upcoming bbqs we are planning. I am going to try the sauce, I like to mix up a bunch of different things and let people pick and choose what they want.

    We love grilled meals in the Philippines- we grill vegetables, sea foods and any kind of meat, and we can grill anytime of the year. I would love to try your CHIMICHURRI sauce, I will have to find first those ingredients if all are available locally.

    Wow! That ribeye steak is so mouth watering. I’m not much of a cook so I guess I’ll only be able to try doing the chimichurri sauce. Actually, I’ve tried chimichurri before with a Latin American chicken here in my country. And I was always wondering what its ingredients are. Now, I know. Thank you for sharing this recipe.

    Steak is my favorite food ever! I know it’s a classic, but you can’t go wrong with a good beef steak, especially if it’s Argentinian, accompanied by a glass of Malbec!

    I didn’t hear about the chimichurri sauce before. If I try it, could I skip the cilantro? I am one of those 20% that absolutely can’t have cilantro. 🙂

      I can see that. I think that cilantro is an acquired taste. The meat tones down the sharpness of the cilantro so this is a great compliment!

    I was surpised with the 10-15 minutes each side. I always thought it must be quick so that it doesn’t get tough. We use a grilled pan on the stove though. Is it the same?

    Reply
    • Alison

      The steaks used are pretty thick but I like to sear the steaks on each side and get the pretty grill marks but then bring the heat down to low. That is why they cook for so long. If they are thicker then they would cook faster, too. If you like them more rare you could pull them off a couple minutes early too.

      Grill pans can cook differently than a BBQ grill. Follow the same strategy but also watch the temperature of the pan. I know my grill pan has a hard time lowering the temperature but if you keep an eye on it, it should be fine!
