Chimichurri n Steak Wraps

Using Flat Iron steak, very trendy, very tasty…. A pair of Flat Iron Steaks from Market Porter – look lush….

imageSaturday Night, I like to treat hubby – we like steak, and when I get the chance to buy some cheaply, But good quality, I load the freezer.

I thought I would try something a bit different, griddled steak, Chimichurri sauce and HM flat breads, with rocket salad.

I start by making the flat bread dough in the Thermomix, I have given the recipe before, but for anyone who missed it

It is such an easy recipe, but does take some time to cook them, as, obviously you have to roll and cook them one at a time, it is SO worth it as they are delicious and freeze well too.

imageThe Chimichurri sauce takes a minute in the Thermomix (or any blender) I throw in a bunch of flat leaf Parsley, a bunch of corriander, a diced small red onion,  2 cloves of garlic (adapt to to taste), a few chilli flakes (again more or less to taste), 2 tablespoons of red wine vinegar, juice of half a lemon, salt pepper and good olive oil enough to loosen to desired consistency – put it all into the Thermomix bowl, except for the olive oil, wizz on speed 7 for 10 seconds, scrape down the bowl and add a good glug of olive oil and mix again on speed 4 adding oil to make it as loose as you like it – taste at this point and add seasoning to taste and put into a screw top jar and put in the fridge – this will last a week or so.


I have also finely sliced half a red onion, and marinated it in red wine vinegar and a touch of sugar, to make a very simple pickle – adds a bit of crunch.


The flat iron steaks, I marinate in olive oil and garlic with a sprinkle of salt and pepper, and when ready put into a heated griddle, a few minutes on each side then take off the griddle and leave to ‘rest’ for a good 10 minutes, then slice into thin’ish slices ready to build your wraps…… Fresh Rocket, steak, sauce and finely diced red onion – Such great flavour combinations.
