Herbs join marinated steak and lemony feta-sprinkled potatoes.
Whenever I think of having steak for dinner, it's usually with gluttonous intentions in mind. But steak and salad? Well, that's a totally different story. Though I could be eating the exact same amount of steak as before, now there are vegetables involved, and everything starts sounding far more reasonable.
Chimichurri with steak is certainly not a new idea, and in fact it's probably the most common way that this Argentinian sauce is used (and they know a thing or two about steak in that country). The garlicky, herbal flavors marry beautifully with the richness and fattiness of steak, not to mention its visually stunning contrast of green against red.
A rub of cumin, ancho chile powder, cinnamon and paprika gives grilled skirt steak a smokey, spicy and slightly sweet flavor.
This Skirt Steak with Red Miso adapted from The Japanese Grill by Harris Salat and Tadashi Ono brings together a whole host of savory ingredients (garlic, miso, and tobanjan, a chili soy bean paste) for an over the top marinade that could work with nearly any cut of meat. Salat and Ono have opted for skirt steak, a thin but super beefy cut that cooks quickly and marinates like a dream. This particular steak reaches medium-rare in just about 3 minutes per side, while the flames of the grill caramelize the miso marinade, giving the steak a crunchy, charred crust.
Chili powders form the base of a marinade for this skirt steak, which is grilled, sliced, and piled into corn tortillas with tomatoes, cilantro, and cilantro cream for a beefy, spicy, fresh, and cool taco.
Skirt steak sits on a bed of a baby arugula, grape tomatoes, and tortilla chips, which is then topped with a cilantro-lime dressing for a simple, yet incredibly flavorful salad.
It's not exactly Mexican and not exactly European, but a nice compromise between the two. The recipe can be made with a high-quality canned tuna or, in this variation, topped with thin slices of medium-rare skirt steak. But the real star is the mixture of warm potatoes, poblanos, and sweet slices of red onion, dressed lightly with rice vinegar and olive oil and seasoned with a little oregano.
This is no time for dainty fare. With much of the past week spent below zero here in Chicago, I needed something substantial, rich, and warming. Though I didn't have time for a hefty stew, I still dreamt of a...
