Grilled Porterhouse Steak with Chimichurri Sauce

Scott Phillips

Servings: 4

This take on the classic Argentinean condiment includes a little heat in the form of a jalapeño; it’s a perfect pairing for a big, beefy porterhouse steak.

Ingredients

  • 1 (2-inch-thick) porterhouse steak (about 2-3/4 lb.)
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1-1/2 cups coarsely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 1 cup coarsely chopped fresh cilantro
  • 3/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil, more as needed
  • 1 Tbs. sherry vinegar, more as needed
  • 2 medium cloves garlic
  • 1 small jalapeño

Preparation

  • Season the steak well with salt and pepper. Let sit at room temperature for at least 1 hour or refrigerate uncovered for up to 48 hours. Meanwhile, make the chimichurri: In a blender, purée the parsley, cilantro, oil, vinegar, garlic, jalapeño, 1 tsp. salt, and 1/4 tsp.  pepper, adding more oil as needed. Transfer to a small bowl and season to taste with more salt and vinegar, if needed.
  • If the steak is refrigerated, let it come to room temperature before grilling. For a charcoal grill, light a chimney starter full of charcoal and bank the coals against one side of the grill. For a gas grill, start with all burners on medium high and then turn off one or more of the burners to create a hot zone and a cool zone.
  • Pat the steak dry and grill over the hottest part of the grill, rotating it occasionally to create a crust, until well browned on one side, 2 to 4 minutes. Flip and sear the other side.
  • Move the steak to the cooler part of the grill, cover, and cook to your desired doneness (about 14 to 18 minutes for medium-rare). Let rest 5 to 10 minutes before serving with the chimichurri sauce.

Make Ahead Tips

The sauce will keep in the fridge for 1 week.

    Used this recipe to cook top sirloin steaks which were and 1 1/2 inches thick. The chimichurri sauce was excellent! I only had some frozen chopped jalapeno so I used this but used fresh parsley and cilantro from my garden. Will definitely make steaks with this sauce again!
