I have a life changing secret to share with you. Life. Changing.
This little secret is called chimichurri and it is, well, life changing. Delightful. Fresh. Easy. Flavorful. Versatile…
You get the point.
Chimichurri is a green or red sauce for grilled meats. This sauce originally from Argentina, land of beef, so it is especially good with steak. There are lots of ways to assemble a yummy chimichurri but my favorite version packs lots of fresh flavor and uses only a handful of ingredients. I told you, it’s easy.
While chimichurri is supposed to be served with steak we love it on just about everything. Scrambled eggs, grilled chicken, fish, and spread on turkey sandwiches are just a handful of our favorite ways to eat chimichurri other than with a perfectly cooked juicy steak. I have literally seen Luke happily dance around the kitchen after glancing over my shoulder to see a batch of his favorite chimichurri int he works. I love that I’ve broken him of his A1 habit. I would like to state for the record, A1 steak sauce is gross.
