Have you ever tried a Chimichurri Recipe? If not, you need to run to try this. Don’t walk. You won’t be disappointed.
Chimichurri is a big part of Argentinean cuisine and is one of their go-to condiments.
It’s an amazing green sauce that is tangy, fresh, and salsa-like. It’s extremely easy to make and it goes well with any steak.
We especially like it with grilled meat, which is why it’s often on our table this time of year.
Add this to sauce to any summer-time BBQ and your taste buds will be happy!
Bacon wrapped filet mignon is a steakhouse classic that everyone loves.
Although it may seem like a no-brainer to put steak and bacon together (what could be bad about adding bacon or steak to anything?!) , there is actually some food science behind this culinary masterpiece.
One of the reasons many chefs cook filets this way is because filets come from the loin primal cut of beef and that means they have slightly less marbling. This makes it a very healthy cut, but it also has less natural flavor than a well-marbled cut like a ribeye. If you wrap the filet in bacon, it brings some added flavor and moisture to the steak while you’re cooking it.
This recipe is simple, but elegant. Most people only make this for special occasions like birthdays and anniversaries. However, since it only takes about 20 minutes to make, we occasionally have it on weeknights too.

This Mongolian Beef Recipe is for anyone that wants a quick Chinese dinner, without waiting for the delivery guy or going to a restaurant.
This recipe is perfect for us since Matt isn’t a big fan of going to most Chinese restaurants, but he does like Chinese food when we make it at home. This is important since sometimes I’ve craving Chinese food like Mongolian Beef or Sweet and Sour Chicken.
