Chimichurri & Smokey Tomato & Pepper Salsa

Steak and chips, one of my favourite meals. Dad even made the twice cooked chips now he has his new favourite deep fat fryer which I am very much benefiting from. 

Sirloin steaks, homemade chips and sauces two ways (from Jennifer Joyce). 

✔️1 cup coriander leaves 
✔️1 cup flat leaf parsley leaves 
✔️2 garlic cloves finely chopped 
✔️1 large shallot, finely chopped 
✔️1 thumb size green chilli, seeded and finely chopped 
✔️80ml extra virgin olive oil 
✔️1.5 tbsp white wine vinegar 

Chop the herbs and put them in a bowl with the garlic, onion and chilli and combine well. Stir in olive oil and vinegar, then season to taste with salt.

Smokey tomato and pepper salsa:
✔️1 small red onion, chopped 
✔️1 small handful of coriander, stems and leaves 
✔️125g cherry tomatoes 
✔️1/2 a red pepper 
✔️2 teaspoons tomato purée
✔️50ml extra virgin olive oil
✔️1.5 tbsp red wine vinegar 
✔️1.5 tsp smoked paprika 
✔️pinch of sugar 

Put all the ingredients in a food processor and pulse until roughly chopped. Put into a bowl and season with salt and freshly ground pepper to taste.
