Grilled Skirt Steak With Herb Sauce

Grilled Skirt Steak With Herb Sauce

Ingredients

2 cups fresh flat-leaf parsley
1/4 cup fresh oregano
2 cloves garlic
1 teaspoon red wine vinegar
1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1 1/2 pounds skirt steak
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 1/2 pounds sweet potatoes, cut on the diagonal into 1/4-inch-thick slices

Directions

  1. Heat grill to medium.
  2. Place the parsley, oregano, and garlic in a food processor and pulse until roughly chopped. Add the vinegar, oil, cayenne, and 1/2 teaspoon of the salt and pulse to combine; set aside.
  3. Season the steak with the remaining salt and the pepper. Grill to desired doneness, about 4 minutes per side for medium-rare. Transfer to a cutting board and let rest 5 minutes before slicing.
  4. Meanwhile, as the steak cooks, toss the potatoes in a large bowl with 1/3 cup of the herb sauce. Place them on the grill in a single layer. Cook, turning once, until tender, about 4 minutes per side.
  5. Divide the steak and potatoes among individual plates and serve with the remaining herb sauce on the side.

Serves 4.
