My Love For Chimichurri

by Sun

While I generally like different types of sauces, the king of all sauces has to be Chimichurri. The first time I tried Chimichurri sauce was in Miami at a Cuban Restaurant called “ La Carreta “.

The sauce accompanied a Churrasco Steak I ordered which is an Argentinian style skirt steak. The main ingredient of Chimichurri sauce is Parsley, which I never ate since I generally think of it more as decorational item than food. Chimichurri sauce has changed my long time belief about not eating parsley. I fell in love with Chimichurry and made it my favorite sauce of all, especially for steak.

Then a couple of months ago, we were invited to a friend's house where they were making the Chimichurry sauce - but they served it as a bread spread and I fell in love with Chimichurri all over again. Everyone was attacking the Chimichurry sauce to eat with their bread. We all had to restrain ourselves so we could leave some room for the main course.

Here is the recipe for you to try for yourself. So you can too attack, devour, and smile.

Ingredients: 2 servings

1/2 cup Olive Oil
3 - 4 tablespoons Red Wine Vinegar ( you can also use any bottled Red Wine Vinaigrette dressing )
3 cloves chopped Garlic
1/2 teaspoon Red Chili Pepper Flakes
1 - 1.5 cup chopped Parsley
1/2 teaspoon Oregano
Kosher salt & pepper

Mix them all in a bowl and serve.
I normally make 10 to 15 servings at once and keep them in the refrigerator to be used for later time.
Enjoy it over steak, grilled veggies, and bread!

And keep smiling!
