Ingredients

For the steak:

  • 2 steaks or 1 1/2 - 2 lbs. beef any cut, like NY Strip, Rib eye, flank and skirt steak; grill your favorite
  • Your favorite dry rub steak seasoning like Montreal Steak seasoning from McCormick or Stubb's Steak Spice Seasoning OR a mixture of salt, freshly cracked pepper, minced garlic and a dash of paprika

For the chimichurri sauce:

  • 2 cups firmly packed fresh flat-leaf parsley trimmed with the stems cut off
  • 1 cup fresh cilantro
  • 3-4 garlic cloves
  • 2 tablespoons fresh oregano leaves OR 2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • ¾ cup good quality olive oil + more if needed
  • 4 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes

For the sliders:

  • Toasted Slider buns; highly recommend brioche slider buns if you can find some
  • Spring mix greens
  • Pea shoots or micro greens
  • Dijon or stone ground mustard optional for an additional kick

Instructions

For the steak:

  • Apply your dry rub steak seasoning to both sides of each steak. Press in gently, wrap and place in the refrigerator for at least one hour.

For the chimichurri sauce:

  • Combine ingredients from the parsley to the oregano in a food processor. Pulse and process until desired consistency is reached; usually several pulses. Place in a small bowl and set aside.
  • In a separate bowl, mix and combine the olive oil, vinegar, salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes. Pour over the parsley mixture and mix together well. Taste and adjust any seasonings as needed.

Steak continued:

  • Remove from refrigerator and grill each steak to desired level (medium rare, medium well etc). Slice thin and set aside.

To assemble the sliders:

  • If using, apply some Dijon or stone ground mustard to your toasted slider bottom bun, lay down your greens and pea shoots and top with a few slices of your grilled steak. Top with the chimichurri sauce and the top side of the toasted slider bun.
  • Repeat with the remaining buns and enjoy with a glass of Cabernet Sauvignon!
