  • SERVINGS: 4

In South America, piquant chimichurri sauce is a favorite accompaniment to grilled meats. Serve bread alongside to soak up the sauce; you won't want to miss a drop.

Plus: More Grilling Recipes and Tips

  1. 2 tablespoons cooking oil
  2. 1 onion, chopped
  3. 3 cloves garlic, minced
  4. 3 cups drained and rinsed canned black beans (from two 15-ounce cans)
  5. 1 cup canned low-sodium chicken broth or homemade stock
  6. 2/3 cup canned crushed tomatoes in thick puree
  7. 1 7-ounce jar sliced pimentos, drained (2/3 cup)
  8. 1 bay leaf
  9. 1 teaspoon salt
  10. 1 1/2 pounds sirloin steak, about 1 inch thick
  11. 1/4 teaspoon fresh-ground black pepper
  12. Chimichurri Sauce
  1. In a medium saucepan, heat 1 tablespoon of the oil over moderately low heat. Add the onion and garlic and cook, stirring occasionally, until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the beans, broth, tomatoes, pimentos, bay leaf, and 1/2 teaspoon of the salt. Simmer until thickened, about 20 minutes. Remove the bay leaf.
  2. Light the grill or heat the broiler. Rub the steak with the remaining oil; sprinkle with the remaining salt and the pepper. Grill or broil for 4 minutes. Turn; cook to your taste, about 4 minutes longer for medium-rare. Cut into thin diagonal slices. Top the beans with the steak and sauce.

Suggested Pairing

This robust dish needs a rollicking red. Go for an all-American Napa, Sonoma, or Amador Zinfandel for spiciness and big fruit flavor.
