I get inspiration for a lot of my recipes from traveling, eating at various restaurants, and quite honestly, requests from my husband, Bridger. His eyes are typically always bigger than his stomach, which I actually love because he has some pretty great cravings and recipe requests.

Have I mentioned that he’s also a big golfer? Anyways, he raved about this steak chimichurri sandwich he had after a round of golf the other week and begged me to recreate it at home. I’ve never made a steak sandwich before, but I love a good challenge. And I have to say, he said I nailed it after the first bite he took, so let that be your guiding light into making this recipe! Not only that, but I made it for my brother-in-law, his parents, and my sister. We all loved it!

I know making steak or meat can be very intimidating. Trust me, I still get intimidated too, but something that has made the biggest difference is using my Yummly Smart Thermometer. It’s turned into one of my key kitchen essentials to have on hand and something I recommend everyone should try/use when preparing meat. It’s a thermometer that you stick into the meat and it’s bluetooth, so it connects straight to the app on your phone. It honestly just takes all the guesswork out of cooking meat because after you tell the app how you want it prepared (i.e. rare, medium rare, well, etc.), it’ll tell you when to flip it and how long to cook it depending on your preference.

By Rachael DeVaux
Prep: 20 minutes
Cook: 20 minutes



  • 1 long baguette
  • 3 tbsp ghee or butter
  • 1 10-ounce ribeye steak
  • 2 tbsp avocado oil
  • sea salt, to taste
  • ground pepper, to taste

Chimichurri Sauce

  • 1/2 cup packed fresh cilantro leaves
  • 1/2 cup packed fresh parsley leaves
  • 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 tbsp chopped red onion
  • 2 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp cumin
  • pinch red chili flakes
  • freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Sauteed Peppers and Onions

  • 1 tbsp avocado or olive oil
  • 1 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt



  • Prepare your ribeye steak on a cutting board. Season with salt and pepper on either side, pressing into the meat. Insert your Yummly meat thermometer, if using, and select how you want it prepared on the app.
  • Heat a medium skillet with oil on medium to high heat. Once the oil is hot but not smoking, add the meat. Cook according to instructions. Once done, return back to clean cutting board and slice into 1/2-inch strips.


  • While the steak is cooking, prepare the chimichurri. Add all ingredients into food processor and pulse until smooth. Remove and set aside.

Peppers & Onions

  • In a small or medium skillet, add oil and turn to medium to high heat. Add in your veggies and toss every few minutes. *To speed cooking, cover with a lid and continue to stir every few minutes. Season with sea salt and remove from burner once veggies are slightly charred and tender.

Baguette Sandwiches

  • Turn the oven on broil, high heat.
  • Slice the baguette in half, lengthwise.
  • Spread one side with ghee or butter, then lay inside-up on the center rack in the oven. Let broil for about 2-5 minutes, or until the baguette is beginning to turn golden brown. Remove and add to cutting board.
  • Layer the baguette with the sliced steak, chimichurri, then sauteed peppers and onions. Fold over the top half of the baguette, then slice diagonally into smaller sandwiches. Enjoy!

  1. This looks SO delish! We love a steak/chimichurri moment so I will definitely be checking trying this recipe out soon! šŸ«¶šŸ¼

  2. SO MUCH TO SAY, but 10/10 this is top tier delicious! I waited all week to treat my man and I to this sandwich for football Sunday. It was so juicy and yummy I was sad when it was over!

    A few modifications we made – we got a skirt steak because we had one already and it turned out great, also added thinly sliced jalapenos for some spice and then grilled one side of the bread in the meat juice pan for extra saucey goodness!

    I am getting him the meat thermometer for his stocking and I can’t wait!

    I wish I could attach my pictures here because it’s drool worthy. As always, thank you Rachael!! You make eating whole & healthy taste sooo good!
