Radish Shoot Chimichurri on Butter Pan Fried Steak

Radish Shoot Chimichurri on Butter Pan Fried Steak

The other day when I was waiting to get a flu shot (surely the sexiest opening line ever), I was perusing Instagram and saw that Rail City had just started carrying radish shoots.

What the what!?!

I told myself if I didn’t faint – or even whimper – when I saw the needle, my payoff would be a bag of those spicy, beautiful little strands of flavor.

I didn’t faint.

Jedd assures me I didn’t whimper much, if at all.

So, I bounced out of the doctor’s office and into the store and came out with a bag of these bad boys.

We had some steak that needed to be used – like that’s a chore – and so the idea popped into my head to make a radish chimichurri.

I love the spicy radish flavor with the bright red wine vinegar and herbs.

This is the perfect meal for a Saturday night, with a glass of Malbec.

½ cup roughly chopped cilantro

1/3 cup roughly chopped flat-leaf parsley

1 jalapeno, seeded, deveined and roughly chopped

1 small shallot, roughly chopped

2 tablespoons radish shoots

2 tablespoons oregano

1 teaspoon kosher salt

½ teaspoon lemon pepper

¾ cup olive oil

2 tablespoons red wine vinegar

1 teaspoon ground cumin


Place the cilantro, parsley, jalapeno, shallot, radish shoots, oregano, salt, and pepper, in a mini-food processor. Pulse until everything is finely diced.

Spoon the mixture into a medium bowl, and whisk in the olive oil, red wine vinegar, and cumin.

Butter Fried Steak Ingredients:

1 (1 lb.) flatiron steak

Let the steak come to room temperature for 20 minutes.

In a large skillet, heat the butter, olive oil, salt and pepper over medium heat. When the mixture is hot, add the steak and fry for 3-4 minutes a side.
