Cilantro sauce recipe--delicious on steak
Like most of my recipes, this one is almost too easy to be called a recipe.  It uses only three ingredients (five if you count salt and pepper!), but it’s fresh, delicious, and unique.  I make it year-round, but it tastes best during the spring and summer when I can use fresh cilantro from my garden or the farmer’s market.

It’s probably more like a relish or a chutney than an actual sauce, but regardless of the name, it’s absolutely delicious on grilled steak.


Cilantro Sauce Recipe:

  • One bunch cilantro, washed, dried and rough-chopped
  • Minced red onion (I usually use about 1/4-1/3 cup)
  • Olive oil (I’m guesstimating here because I just pour it in until it binds the cilantro and red onion together, but probably about 1/3 c.
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper

That’s it!  Stir it together and let it sit for a few hours so the flavors can meld.  Bring it to room temperature before spooning over steak.  I recommend flank steak, skirt steak, or other sliced steaks.  I usually mix a marinade of red wine, olive oil, and slivered garlic for the meat when I’m using the cilantro sauce recipe.  It’s delicious!
