One word: Chimichurri. If you don’t make it on the reg, you should. It’s a healthy, delicious way to add flavor to almost anything. In this case, filet mignon. This, my friends is The Organic Kitchen’s Chimichurri Steak, Potato and Salad Dinner Board!

The Steak and Chimichurri:
Tender, juicy filet mignon, seared on the cooktop and finished in the oven, drizzled in fresh lime chimichurri… simply dreamy. Chimichurri originated in Argentina and is usually a simple combination of onions, garlic, olive oil, green herbs, and lemon or lime juice. Totally worth the five minutes it takes to whisk together!
Crispy roasted potatoes are our favorite. We use ‘new gold’ potatoes for this board but you could also use fingerling or even sweet potatoes. We drizzle them in olive oil and sprinkle with sea salt and freshly turned black pepper and then pop them in the oven. While they roast, we prep the salad and cook the steaks. The whole meal takes about 50 minutes, from start to gloriously delicious finish!
Keeping it simple here: greens, apples, pecans, and your choice of feta or avocado and a light, lemon vinaigrette! What an exquisite meal!
This Meal is Adaptable!
I show this as a meal for two served on one platter, but of course you could make this incredible meal for two, four, or six and simply serve on plates!
