Peggy Lampman's Tuesday dinnerFeed: Grilled Flank Steak Chimichurri with Grilled Potatoes
Peggy Lampman | Contributor
This is the perfect dinner to capture a summer day. I love the herbaceous, vinegary flavors of a chimichurri sauce on a grilled steak. The intense flavors of the smoked paprika are marvelous paired with the chimichurri.
My small garden is begging to have the Italian parsley pruned, and this recipe happily obliges. I'm using a favorite Chimichurri recipe, but keep in mind the flank steak requires marinating 2-4 hours and cooks much quicker than the potatoes.
Yield: 4 servings
Active Time: 10 minutes
Grilling Time: 30-50 minutes
Cost: apx. $3.50
1 1/2 pounds redskin potatoes
1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 teaspoon smoked Spanish paprika
1. Prepare charcoal or gas grill to medium-high heat.
2. Scrub potatoes and cut into 1/4-inch slices. Whisk together olive oil and paprika. In a medium-sized bowl, toss sliced potatoes with seasoned oil and lightly season with kosher salt and freshly ground pepper.
3. Center and spread potatoes in a doubled layer of aluminum foil, the pieces of foil large enough to completely wrap tightly around potatoes. Fold in edges to tightly seal, wrapping an additional of foil around the package if necessary.
4. Grill potatoes 15-25 minutes on each side, depending on heat of grill. When potatoes are easily pierced with a fork through the foil, potatoes are ready.
