Posted on 07. Jun, 2012 by in Recipes

Mmmmmm Steak! I love the versatility of steak and how it can be delicious with almost anything. My wife made so much that I ended up having it for lunch the next day and breakfast the day after that. The picture at the top is of my lunch the day after. You can see the night first made pic with Sweet Potato Pancakes below. And also a picture of my steak and eggs, the day after that. The Chimichurri sauce is pretty magnificent too!
