Wine Pairings by @grapefriend

A gritty Malbec will hold up to the steak but be bold enough for the piquant chimichurri.

Beer Pairings

The fruity and peppery finish of a Saison pairs great with a chimichurri sauce.

TK Table Talk:

Which celebrity chef would you most like to fix you a meal?

What To Do:

1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Coat a baking tray with cooking spray. Set aside.

4. Cook steak: While the vegetables are roasting, heat a lightly oiled grill pan over medium-high heat. Rub steak with 1 teaspoon olive oil and half of the garlic. Season generously with salt and pepper. Place on the hot grill and cook until browned on the underside (2 minutes). Turn over and continue cooking until desired doneness/temperature is reached when tested with a meat thermometer (see Pro Tip). Tent with foil and allow to rest.

5. Make the chimichurri: Grate the zest from the lemon. Cut the lemon in half. Combine zest, juice from half of the lemon (use the other half to flavor a glass of iced tea), remaining garlic, parsley, capers, 1 tablespoon olive oil, and 1 tablespoon water in a food processor or blender. Pulse until coarsely chopped.

To Serve: Top steaks with chimichurri and serve potatoes and asparagus on the side.

Pro Tip:

Temperatures for steak doneness: rare/ 125-130°F, medium rare/130-140°F, medium/140-150°F, medium well/ 150-155°F, well done/why bother?

Sure, our TK food containers are recyclable, but we’d rather you upcycle them first. We’re partial to using them to sprout our garden seeds, but we’d love to see how creative you are! Tag us in your photos. #tklife
