Grilled Steak & Shrimp With A Chimichurri Sauce

Standard

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!

Blend the dry ingredients in a food processor. Then spoonful the mixture into a bowl and stir in olive oil and red wine vinegar. Salt to taste. You can refrigerate the sauce for up to 1 week! IMG_9763

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!
