Tom Mentzer runs Mentzer PR Group in Kansas City and he is known as a wonderful cook! When he stopped by Barham Family Farm recently, we asked if he would share what he did with the flank steak he bought. He shared this impromptu recipe based on chimichurri, an Argentinian herbed oil served with grilled meats. The recipe would also work with skirt steak, although you might want to marinate the skirt steak before grilling.
Put an egg on it! This recipe was inspired by the rendered duck fat, a precious ingredient for chefs and especially delicious on all manner of potatoes.
Add pasture-raised eggs with deep yellow yolks, duck or chicken.
If you're a hothead, add a splash of Fair Share Farms fermented hot sauce!

Chef Cynthia joined the Air Force in the late ‘80s and became an chef, learning the fundamentals of commercial cooking. She retired and continues in the Air Force Reserves while her husband flew C-130s for the Air National Guard.
While both were still working, they bought a farm in Northwest Missouri with a history known as Vinegar Hill near Wallace State Park.
Plans are now underway to open a country store catering to state park campers, visitors and locals offering Barham Family Farm meats and products to their patrons.
