Grilled Steak Sandwiches with Chimichurri and Bell Peppers

Grilled Steak Sandwiches with Chimichurri and Bell Peppers


  • 1 cup (packed) fresh Italian parsley
  • 1 cup (packed) fresh cilantro
  • 3 tablespoons white wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried crushed red pepper
  • 2/3 cup plus 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 large bell peppers (preferably 1 red and 1 yellow), cut into 3/4-inch-wide strips
  • 2 12-ounce rib-eye steaks
  • 4 sourdough demi-baguettes, halved horizontally

Recipe Preparation

  • Prepare barbecue (medium-high heat). Combine first 6 ingredients in processor; add 2/3 cup oil and puree until almost smooth. Season chimichurri with salt and pepper.

  • Brush pepper strips, steaks, and cut side of bread with remaining 1/4 cup oil. Sprinkle peppers and steaks with salt and pepper. Grill peppers until tender, about 5 minutes per side. Grill steaks to desired doneness, about 4 minutes per side for medium-rare. Grill bread, cut side down, until beginning to brown lightly, about 2 minutes. Thinly slice steaks crosswise; divide among bread bottoms. Spoon chimichurri over steak (about 1/4 cup per sandwich), then top with pepper strips. Cover with bread tops and serve.

Recipe Remix

  • Toss any remaining chimichurri sauce with potato wedges and roast in 400°F oven until just tender, about 40 minutes.
