Chimichurri Sauce - Get Saucy in Your Kitchen with Saucy Mouth!Get Saucy in Your Kitchen with Saucy Mouth!

Chimichurri Sauce

A couple years ago I was at a Walt Disney World for The Food and Wine Festival, man was I in heaven!! Eating and drinking my way around EPCOT with close friends what a perfect day! So the Food and Wine festival is set up with all the countries serving a traditional small plate (tapas) of food. During this event they also bring out more countries than the usual 11 they already have. As we were making our way through we came across Brazil or Argentina. ( I can’t remember, the beer might have been doing it job!) At this booth they were serving these strips of beef with a green sauce on top. To me when I looked at it I figured I was getting something like a verde sauce or a tomatillo based sauce, was I WAY wrong! I took my first bite and my mouth was exploding with these fresh, unique flavors! As I was eating, I was doing what I do, dissecting it with my eyes and mouth. I was so interested on these combinations of flavors I had just eaten. I knew I had to recreate that sauce not only for me, but I wanted others to try this great sauce. As I did some research I found the sauce goes by the name of chimichurri. You know everyone has their own way of making the sauce, but here’s my take and I think you will enjoy it! I am a huge fan when it comes to seasoning anything with fresh herbs or spices, it’s a healthy way of eating DELICIOUS food.

Chimichurri Sauce
Entree, Sauce
  • 6 cloves garlic, minced
  • ½ medium, white onion, chopped
  • 1 bunch cilantro, chopped
  • 1 bunch flat leaf parsley, chopped
  • ¼ cup red wine vinegar
  • ½ cup olive oil
  • ¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 lemon or lime, juiced
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Pinch of pepper
  1. In a small mixing bowl combine all the ingredients together. Serve with steak, chicken, or fish!
  2. Directions to serve on a flank steak.
  3. Marinate steak in a plastic storage bag, with ¼ cup of chimichurri sauce, seal bag and massage marinate into the meat. Place marinated meat in the fridge for 2 hours or at least 30 minutes.
  4. Let meat sit for 15 minutes before grilling. Grill meat for approximately 6-8 minutes per side on a hot grill. Grill time is just a suggestion, time depends on the thickness of meat. Discard marinate. Let meat sit for 5 minutes before cutting. Serve with mashed potatoes or on top a salad. I like to add a little fresh chimichurri sauce on top of the cooked meat to complete the meal. Enjoy!
  5. Chimichurri sauce will last 2-3 days in the refrigerator.
