Chimichurri steak bites, pretzel burgers for the World Cup

I WILL NOT LET THIS DIE. I’m going to try to backlog some of the meals I’ve been making in the past month. On Sunday, Kelsey had some people over to watch Argentina v Germany. To honor the two teams in the final, I made these:

Chimichurri steak bites served ~50 steak bites
2 lbs sirloin tips (we chose this because it was the easiest and we were tight on time)
1/2 cup parsley minced
1/2 cup cilantro minced (I didn’t bother to remove the leaves from the stem since the stem provides a nice flavor)
1/2 cup red wine vinegar
1/3 cup olive oil
4 garlic cloves minced
1 shallot minced

Mix everything for the sauce. Add salt to taste. For the steak, cut into bite size pieces and salt. Cook on skillet until medium rare, flipping pieces only once. Once the steak is done, spread chimichurri on steak bites to coat. Leave extra sauce for dipping.

Pretzel burgers served ~25 burgers
2 lbs ground meat
Salt
Pepper jack cheese
Pretzel buns

Pretty self explanatory.

I cooked the steak and burgers at the same time. For each, I cooked in batches and kept cooked pieces warm in the oven.
