Flat Iron Steak with Chimichurri Sauce - a great way to enjoy steak!

 

A few weeks ago I had the amazing opportunity to visit Certified Angus Beef® in Wooster Ohio.  They brought 10 bloggers in to see their culinary education center, meet with their chefs, and get cooking for the weekend.  It was such a wonderful experience.  I learned so much about beef; how to pick out the right cut, how to cook it, how to slice it and more.  The chefs prepared a few meals for us, so we pretty much ate like royalty.  Prime rib, lobster stuffed beef tenderloin, truffle fries, and so much more.  Seriously, I probably didn’t need to eat for a week after I got home!

Certified Angus Beef Bloggers

So, did you know that Certified Angus Beef® doesn’t actually raise any cows? They don’t have any ranchers or anything!  They are basically a quality standard.  They have 10 quality standards that each cow has to achieve, in order to get the Certified Angus Beef seal. It is a more rigorous test that the USDA, so if you see the seal, you know you are buying the best of the best! Definitely worthy of your holiday table!

While we were in Ohio, we were broken into groups to work with their 4 amazing chefs.  I was assigned to Chef Peter Rosenberg.  I had a Latin theme in mind, so he helped me go with it!  I made this Flat Iron Steak with Chimichurri Sauce as a main dish.  We turned some of the flat iron steaks into an appetizer on a crispy tortilla with chimichurri sauce and cheese.  Then we used the leftovers to make a quick empanada with a couple dipping sauces.  Definitely a meal I would eat any day of the week, but worthy of guests and holidays as well.
