Chimichurri is an Argentinian herb sauce typically served over meats. It it fresh and herbal and it wonderful on steaks and chicken in particular.
You will need:
- bunch of parsley (I always choose flat/Italian vs. curly)
- 5-6 fresh oregano leaves (it's pretty strong stuff fresh!)
- small bunch of chives
- small bunch of mint
- small bunch of basil
- 2-3 cloves of garlic
- 1/2 tsp chili flakes
- 2-3 tbsp red wine/ sherry vinegar
- 1/2 lemon juiced
- 1/4 cup olive oil
Step 1: get your blend of fresh herbs. I have picked all of mine from the backyard.
Step 2: add everything to the food processor except the oil. Blend until you get a nice puree. Add the oil last and blend to combine. Taste it and add more salt or pepper or chili flakes or lemon as necessary. Store in fridge in a sealed container.
We had some grilled Chorizo and chicken breast that we served it on. Tonight I will have to make a steak to use the rest on!
