    Beautiful BC's Note:

    From an old issue of Food & Wine magazine, a tasty marinated steak with a classic South American sauce with a slight twist - bacon! It has been pointed out that this is still a tasty recipe if you want to leave out the added flavours (& fat) of the bacon - thank you PanNan! NOTE - prep time does not include minimum 4 hour marinating time

      Very flavorful. Just a tad too fatty with the bacon, but I loved the fresh flavors. I used herbs grown in my garden.

      I did like another reviewed did, I did half the sauce. I loved the taste of bacon in this sauce. The marinade with the red wine was amazing. I loved everything about this recipe. I just used a bit less of olive oil for the sauce. Thanks BeautifulBC. Made for the Babes of ZWT4

      We really enjoyed these steaks for dinner. I only made half of the chimichurri sauce and that was plenty to go around. I used the bacon but with the fresh herbs in the sauce, it may have gotten overshadowed some. Can that happen to bacon?! Made a nice presentation. Loved how easy it was to prepare. Thanks for sharing. Made for my Babes for ZWT4.
