It's what's for dinner

Beef. Filets, to be exact. They melt in your mouth. I serve them with Chimichurri sauce and some nice fresh steamed green beans.

Chimichurri Sauce

1 head garlic
1 chipotle pepper in adobo sauce
1/4 c olive oil
1/4 c chopped flat leaf parsley

Lop the head off the garlic, about 1/4in down. Wrap loosely in foil and roast in a 325 degree oven for 45 minutes. Let cool to room temp and peel the garlic. Put the peeled cloves into a food processor with the chipotle. Whiz it up. Drizzle the olive oil in while the processor is running. Put the parsley in and pulse a couple of times. Add salt and pepper to taste.

I sometimes use 2 or 3 chipotles but even with just one this is HOT.

But soooo good.

I'm now drooling and it's still 1 1/2 hours until dinner.
