Steak and Chimichurri

Chimichurri, if you’ve never tried, is a steak sauce from Argentina. Really, it’s for all kinds of grilled meats. Once you try it, you’ll have a hard time using anything else. And while steak and chimichurri is typically more of a summer thing, steak is year-round in my mind.

It’s best to make the chimichurri at least a four hours in advance so the flavours get all happy with each other.

This is all about the filling. Make the physical omelette in any style you like.

Amounts are not exact, just suggestions. These recipes are general guidelines roughly aimed towards single egg, individual portions unless otherwise mentioned. Adjust as necessary. Play around. Have fun.

Season everything to taste with salt and pepper.

Disclaimer: Though unlikely, eating undercooked eggs can cause illness.
