Hints and tips

  • When chopping the parsley, it is very important to use a well sharpened knife to get a clean cut of the herbs and avoid smashing them. Otherwise, you will leave a lot of the herb flavours and aromas in your chopping board.
  • Chimichurri can be used as a marinate and as a sauce. We have added the additional parsley at the end to brighten up before serving.
  • You can sous-vide steak without a bag, however, make sure the steak is marinated overnight.
  • The steak can be sous-vide ahead of serving. Bring the steak to temperature in the steam oven on Sous-vide at 54°C for 10 minutes before searing.
  • This steak is the traditional “Porteño” (port) style of Argentina.
