Enjoy a taste of Argentina without ever leaving your kitchen thanks to the unbeatable combination of cumin-scented steak and bright green chimichurri sauce. Instead of traditional herbs, we used mellow scallion greens for our own twist on the sauce.

Instructions
1

Prep: Wash and dry all produce. Bring a medium pot of salted water to a boil. Core, seed, and thinly slice bell pepper. Mince garlic. Thinly slice scallion whites. Very finely mince scallion greens. Zest and halve lemon (you’ll want about ½ tsp zest).

2

Cook the bell pepper mixture: Heat a drizzle of oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add bell peppers and cook until softened, 4-5 minutes. Add scallion whites and garlic, and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Season with salt and pepper. Remove from pan and set aside in a large bowl.
