The wife said she was jonesin' for some steak, but I was feeling like more than just a nice hunk o' meat.

Skirt steak, trimmed and seasoned simply with salt/pepper and marinated for 8 hours in my favorite Chimichurri recipe - simple Flat Leaf Parsley, Cilantro, garlic, red pepper flakes, S&P, red onion, red wine vinegar and EVOO in the food processor for a few blasts:

Gotta save some of that sauce for post cook too.

Also caught a great deal on some pretty 16-20 Gulf Shrimp....so I had to help out those fishermen on the coast and grabbed a pound. Marinated them in EVOO, garlic, cilantro, fresh pears, sugar and some habenero - marinated for an hour:

Had done a cleaning fire last night, so the egg was easy to get up to searing temps quickly....spider and cast iron grid in place, check!

Skirts First -

About 3 minutes per side, closed the bottom vent and put a standard grid at ring height, added the shrimp...shortly followed by some foccacia:

Plated and ready to go....the additional chimichurri adds a great fresh profile to the steak.

Everyone is stuffed.....but we have a King Cake for dessert waiting!

    Thanks Molly,

    King Cake is a Mardi Gras tradition. Basically a cinnamon flavored coffee cake, covered in white icing with the traditional Green, Purple and Gold "sprinkles". It dates back to 12th Century France, used to celebrate the Epiphany or Twelfth Night (3 wise men bearing gifts for Christ). In Louisiana, Twelfth Night is the beginning of the Carnival season.

    We already dug into this one....

    Just the red pepper flakes in the Chim, but I wouldn't call it hot...Which is why I added some habs to the shrimp! ;)
  • Your steak looks great! I love Chimichurri, and I use the same recipe. A nice Sat. night dinner, to be sure.
