The Origins: Chimichurri or chimmichurri is a green sauce used for grilled meat, originally from the Rio de la Plata, Argentina. It is made of finely-chopped parsley, minced garlic, olive oil, oregano, and white vinegar.
This recipe deviates slightly only because there are a few things that I added to boost up the flavor and of course I like making my own renditions of traditional recipes sometimes!
- 1 punch of parsley chopped
- 1/2 bunch of cilantro
- 1/2 cup of red wine vinegar
- 5 cloves of garlic
- 3 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
- 1 teaspoon of red pepper flakes
- 1 tablespoon of dried oregano.
Now here is my grill prep!
Any grilled meat will taste great with this sauce. I plan on trying it with chicken too but I really loved the steak and shrimp combination! It cooked quickly and was very flavorful!
By far this has moved to the top of the list as one of my favorite sauces!!
