Grilled Lamb Steak with Mitsitam Cafe Chimichurri Sauce

Earlier this year, my son was studying American Indians in school. As I was searching the web for info on the tribe he was making a diorama of, somehow I came across a mention of this cookbook ~ The Mitsitam Cafe CookbookI was intrigued, so I went to the library to get a copy. This cookbook not only has recipes and beautiful food photos, it's also full of Native American history, cool vintage photos, and info on ingredients that have been a part of the diet of various tribes for centuries. It's a fun read and I've been inspired to make quite a few of their recipes ~ that makes this book a real winner in my opinion. I'll go so far as to say it's my new favorite cookbook! I highly recommend either checking out a copy from your library (or getting a copy of your own), it's that good. If I ever get back to Washington, DC, I definitely plan on stopping by the Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian and heading over to the Mitsitam Native Foods Cafe for a meal!

For my dinner tonight I made the recipe for Chimichurri Sauce and ate it with a grilled lamb steak that I cooked on my George Foreman Grill. The sauce is a beautiful shade of emerald green, full of fresh parsley, cilantro and other tasty goodies. It's so packed with flavor! It only took about 15 minutes to throw this entire low fat dinner together ~ 5 minutes for the sauce, 5 minutes to grill the lamb and a couple of minutes to reheat the leftover pinto beans (another recipe I made from the cookbook) and leftover brown rice. What a great meal to end my weekend ~ more real-time cooking in my kitchen tonight. :)
