Grilled Steak and Shrimp with Green Beans, Tomatoes and Chimichurri
1-pound green beans, trimmed
1-pint grape tomatoes, halved
1 tablespoon olive oil, plus more for grill grates
Kosher salt and fresh-ground pepper, to taste
2 strip or rib-eye steaks (about 1-inch thick), about 2 pounds total
Chimichurri sauce, recipe follows
Place a double layered piece of heavy-duty foil on a tray or cutting board; fold and gather edge to form a rim. Toss the green beans and tomatoes on foil with 1 tablespoon olive oil; season with salt and pepper.
Preheat a grill to medium. Lightly oil the grill grates and season the steak with salt and pepper. Slide the foil tray onto the grill; cook, tossing occasionally, until the beans char slightly and cook through, about 15 minutes.
Meanwhile, add the steaks to the grill; cook until desired doneness. Remove steaks to cutting board to rest 5 minutes. Slice, and serve steak and the vegetables with the Chimichurri.
1 cup fresh flat-leaf parsley, tightly packed (about 1 bunch of parsley)
1 cup fresh cilantro, tightly packed (about 1 bunch of cilantro)
1/2 cup diced red onion
3 Tablespoons fresh oregano, tightly packed
3 cloves of garlic, peeled
2 Tablespoons fresh lemon or lime juice
2 Tablespoons red wine vinegar
Kosher salt and fresh-ground pepper, to taste
Red pepper flakes, to taste
½ cup olive oil
Add all ingredients except the olive oil to a food processor, and pulse a few times until chopped. Slowly stream in the olive oil, while pulsing the mixture a few more times until the olive oil is combined, and stopping to scrape down the sides of the food processor if needed.
Serve immediately, or refrigerate in a sealed container, for up to 3 days.
