Grilled Ribeye Steak with Chimichurri Sauce — Happy Birthday Mom!

Mom

I kind of love this picture of Mom. It was taken on her wedding day about 48 years ago in Việt Nam.

Isn’t she stunning?

And today is her birthday.

For the past few years, I’ve sort have done a little ritual each year on May 10th to celebrate her birthday. In the morning, I swing by Panera to grab an Egg Souffle (her fav) for brekkie and then at some point in the day, I make a steak.

Because Mom L-O-V-E-D her some steaks.

She adored a Filet Mignon or a straight up Ribeye Steak – kind of a trait she’s passed on to my seester T and my niece Nina.

This year to honor Mom’s birthday, I grilled up a tender and meat-a-licious Grilled Ribeye Steak with Chimichurri Sauce.

Truthfully, I can’t recall Mom ever having chimichurri over her steak but I can be certain that she would have loved it. Flavorful grilled steaks topped with an herbaceous & spicy chimichurri –she would have been ALL about it.

So here’s to Mom—our loyal, strong, steak lovin’, foodie, fashionista who we love and miss every day.

Happy Birthday Mama!

Grilled Ribeye Steak with Chimichurri Sauce
Serves 2

Ingredients:

1/2 tablespoon vegetable oil, more for the grill
1 16-18 ounce ribeye steak
kosher salt
black pepper
1/4 cup (or more) chimichurri sauce, to taste

Rub the oil over the the steak. Heavily season with kosher salt and black pepper.

Heat a grill (gas or charcoal) to medium-high heat. Brush the grates of the grill with additional oil.

Grill the first side of the steak directly over the heat for 4-5 minutes. Flip to the other side and continue to grill for about 3-4 minutes–or until desired doneness.  Once grilled and golden, remove the steak and allow to rest for 10 minutes.

Slice the steak against the grain and plate. Top with spoonfuls of the chimichurri sauce and serve.
