Simple Indulgence – Movie Night


Life has been so fast paced lately, in a good way, though I would hate for life to just pass us by without even realizing it. This theory also explains why my husband and I are not TV people. Yes, we rarely watch TV, shows, or anything. News is easily accessible with radio, phone, laptops, etc. right? Though there are good shows that I occasionally get addicted to like LOST or BSG. So when we decide to have a quiet movie night at home, it really is a special occasion! Every special occasion deserves something delicious, of course.

Argentinian Flank Steak with Chimichurri
served with Green Chile Cornbread

For our quiet night in, I made an Argentinian flank steak with chimichurri. I served the steak with a spiced up green chile corn bread. In my opinion, grilled flank steak tastes best when it is accompanied with a flavorful sauce like chimichurri. The pairing is just perfection. To add a little more excitement to the plate, I made a spiced up green chile corn bread to munch on. Enjoy the present and indulge in the simplicity of life!

    Simple meals like this are just perfect for date/movie nights! Chimichurri is actually one of my favorite steak toppings!

    This brings me back to the Argentinian steak at 1810 in Pasadena when I visited you guys last summer. Your version looks much more refined; love how the large strips are blanketed with the chimichurri sauce. And that cornbread sounds like an amazing side. Bold colors and beautiful plating really set this dish off!

    Yum! What a nice dinner to have on a cozy night in! I'm really digging the color contrast between the pink steak and bright green chimichurri. Looks so fresh and delicious. 🙂 We watched Lost, too. I still don't get it. :-p
