RECIPE: Aji - Fantastic on Grilled Steak

cookingrvcSeptember 5, 2009

My sister saw this in July's Bon Appetit; it's a Steven Raichlen creation (the BBQ Bible guy). It is paired with flank steak in the magazine, however we've had it with rib eyes (another beefy-tasting cut) and it was fantastic!

The color is gorgeous from the jalepenos, cilantro, and scallions...and the taste is amazing - fresh and lively.

It has become our 'go to' accompaniment for grilled meat. I think you'll like it too.

For my taste I think that sauce would be a little overpowering on a good piece of beef. But I do like the sound of the sauce so I would be very tempted to try it if I was in the mood for a Tex Mex or Mexican style steak. Thanks Sue for sharing the recipe.

The sauced is used sparingly and as such really compliments the meat.

I am usually a purist when it comes to beef, preferring mine usually with just some salt and pepper...but this was outstanding.
By itself, it appears over the top...paired with a beefy cut of meat, it is devine.

Of course, this is just my opinion! To each his own!
