Steak With Chimichurri Sauce

Chimichurri recipe & content provided by Jordan Pie

My first chimichurri sauce was a real revelation and a fluke. I made it originally to go with some pan-fried fish and discovered it was the type of herb sauce that went with anything from roasted chicken to guacamole to seafood to salads to eggs to, of course, a good piece of grass-fed steak. Chimichurri is a perfect addition to your meal if you’re looking to add a delicious flavor bomb of fragrant herbs and zesty citrus. You can double or even triple the quantities of this chimichurri sauce recipe and store it in a glass jar in the fridge. Then, simply dollop it on top of whatever savory meal you like.

Steak With Chimichurri Sauce

Serves 2



  • 16 oz quality grass-fed steak (allow it to come to room temperature)
  • Grass-fed ghee or butter for cooking
  • 1 sprig of thyme or rosemary
  • Salt to season

Chimichurri Sauce (makes 1/2 cup)

  • 2 1/2 cups of fresh basil leaves (or 1 bunch)
  • 1 cup fresh mint leaves
  • Juice of 1 lemon or lime
  • 1/2 cup Brain Octane Oil or MCT oil
  • Pinch of salt


  1. Put the basil and mint leaves in blender and blitz until they’re broken down.
  2. Add the remaining chimichurri sauce ingredients and blend together until combined.
  3. Pour the chimichurri sauce into a pouring jug and set it aside.
  4. Heat a frying pan to medium heat. Once the pan has heated up, add the butter or ghee and herbs.
  5. Add the steak to the frying pan and cook on both sides until golden brown and cooked to your liking.
  6. When the steaks are ready, remove the frying pan from the heat and allow the steaks to rest for 5 minutes.
  7. Serve the steaks with the chimichurri sauce on top.

Serve with cauliflower puree, roasted sweet potato, or a fresh salad.
