Chimichurri is a spicy Argentinean sauce served with beef throughout South America. It has a similar consistency to pesto and tastes great with grilled chicken or fish, too. This recipe is a tasty leftovers idea from our marinated barbecue beef dish. If you'd like to make it from scratch you'll need 200g (7oz) of beef fillet.

Put the parsley, coriander, garlic, green chilli and white wine vinegar in a food processor. Add a good pinch of salt and blend until well combined. Set aside.

Heat a griddle pan over a high heat and brush each slice of bread with the oil. Griddle the bread for a few minutes on each side until lightly charred.

Spread 2 slices of the bread with the chimichurri and then lay over the beef, lettuce leaves and tomato. Top with the remaining slices of bread and serve immediately.
