A good ribeye steak is hard to beat. They have the perfect balance of meat and fat, no bones to complicate cooking, and if cooked correctly they are juicy and flavorful. Chimichurri is a great summer accompaniment to any meat. The freshness of the herbs, mixed with garlic, pepper flakes and olive oil is delicious. It can be made ahead of time which makes it a good sauce to use when entertaining.
