This entry is part 27 of 28 in the series Progressive Eats

Welcome to Progressive Eats, our virtual version of a Progressive Dinner Party. Our menu this month features all dishes that include our favorite herbs! We’ve got a great mix from a cocktail to dessert; all recipes showing just how versatile these garden favorites can be! Hosting this month is Laura from Mother Would Know. My contribution is Flank Steak with Chimichurri Sauce, a celebration of fresh herbs!

Chimichurri likely originated in South America and is most commonly associated with Argentinian cuisine. It can be served with many different foods such omelets, seafood, and varieties of grilled meats. In America is it often spooned over flank steak, a less expensive but very tasty cut of beef. Just be sure to cook it medium-rare or it will get too tough!
