    gailanng's Note:

    The spicy chimichurri sauce dresses up this Brazilian-style steak sandwich...and it's not to be left out! Adapted from "The Complete 15-Minute Gourmet" by Paulette Mitchell. Note: I posted the complete recipe for the Chimichurri Sauce. It could be halved, but if making the full batch, use the left overs for other grilled meats.

    Chimichurri Sauce

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Stir together the coriander, cumin, salt and pepper in a medium bowl. Add the sirloin strips and lightly coat with spices.
    2. 2
      Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onions; cook, stirring occasionally, for 6 minutes or until well-browned and very tender. Add the remaining 1 tablespoon oil and the beef; continue to cook, stirring occasionally, for 3 more minutes or until the beef is just cooked. Remove from the heat and cover to keep warm.
    3. 3
      While the beef is cooking, stack the pitas on a microwave-proof plate and cover with a paper towel. Microwave on high for 1 minute or until warm.
    4. 4
      Halve each pita to form 2 pockets. Fill with beef and onions. Drizzle each half with about 1 tablespoon chimichurri sauce. Serve while warm.
    5. 5
      For the Chimichurri Sauce: Process all ingredients in a food processor or blender until smooth. If tasted alone, the sauce will seem very acidic. To adjust seasonings, taste by dipping in a piece of food, such as beef, chicken or fish.
