Makes 4 tasty steaks


4 8 oz striploin beef steaks

¼ cup steak spice

2 tbsp chopped fresh dill

Drizzle olive oil

Chimichurri Sauce

1 cup flat-leaf parsley

1/4 cup fresh cilantro

½ cup fresh oregano

4 green onions, cut into 2-inch lengths

8 cloves garlic

1 jalapeno peppers, halved lengthwise, seeds removed

1/4 cup malt vinegar

¼ cup olive oil

1 tbsp cracked black pepper

1 tsp red chili flakes

1 tsp ground cumin

Kosher salt to taste

In a blender combine parsley, cilantro, oregano green onion, garlic, jalapeno, and vinegar. Blend until smooth. With the motor running on the blender drizzle olive oil in a steady stream to incorporate. Add black pepper, chili flakes and cumin and season to taste with kosher salt. Set aside.

Rub the steaks with the BBQ spice, pressing the seasoning into the meat. Fire up your grill.

Sear the steaks on both sides for 1-2 minutes per side. After the initial sear move the steaks to an indirect part of your grill and baste with chimichurri. Close lid, maintaining a grill temperature of about 400-500 degrees and let the steaks indirectly roast for 12-15 minutes for medium rare to medium doneness. Remove steaks from grill and let rest for 5 minutes

Serve with extra chimichurri.
