Grilled Steak Tips with Rojo Chimichurri

Grilled Steak Tips with Rojo Chimichurri

Grilled Steak Tips with Rojo Chimichurri sauce is a full of flavor dish that everyone loves who I serve it to. If you have been following along with me for a while then you know I love grilled meats with sauces! 

Now most people are familiar with the green chimichurri from Argentina but there is also a red or rojo version way to make an Argentinian chimichurri steak.

If you are not confident with grilling, it doesn’t have to be complicated to make your food taste amazing, in fact quite the opposite!  You just have to give your meat some love before and after grilling to have an amazing dish like.

Here, I’ve added lots of the chimichurri sauce to the meat after it was done cooking. Give it a few minutes to rest with the meat and it will taste amazing.

For me, I have found that if you buy quality meat and season it well before AND after the grilling then no matter what. When you do this, the meat will taste fantastic!  To season your meat before hand, it is safest to just use salt and pepper so you don’t have to worry about the marinade causing your meat to get charred. 

Grilling your Steak:

With this steak with chimichurri recipe, you will add a little (1 tbsp) of the rojo chimichurri before grilling along with some salt and pepper. The reason you do not want to add too much of your marinade before grilling is because it will cause too much charring on the meat. I add the chimichurri later after the cooking is done.

I added a very little bit of the rojo chimichurri to the meat before grilling.

There are exceptions to this rule though. I do like to marinate my Dijon steak tips before grilling. That is a very thick marinade and the dijon forms a nice crust after grilling.

I like to add my sauces at the end of grilling and then I tent the meat with aluminum foil and let the sauce absorb into it and it always comes out amazing!  It’s that simple 🙂

What to serve with this steak and rojo chimichurri dish:

If you want to make this meal even easier, you can use this same sauce to add to vegetables and make them taste delicious; see how I added the rojo chimichurri to some green beans to use as a side- so delish! It goes so well with the steak with chimichurri sauce.
