Grilled Skirt Steak with Chimichurri Sauce and Asparagus

img_0896bp

This was actually my first attempt at chimichurri sauce. I looked up a few different recipes online to get a basic idea of what makes chimichurri sauce – and then I took my own approach to it by combining recommendations from different recipes.

For this meal I grilled the skirt steak with just a bit of salt and pepper rubbed over it then topped with sauce and paired it with simple grilled asparagus. I added an extra dollop of sauce to each plate to have some for the asparagus as well.
