chimichurri

If you’ve never had chimichurri sauce on your steak or grilled chicken, you’re in for a treat!  Chimichurri is an Argentinean sauce made with chopped fresh parsley, oregano, garlic, olive oil, vinegar, and red pepper flakes, and it’s such a fresh compliment to savory dishes.

In our house we add cilantro, red onion, kosher salt and lime juice to the mix, and I think it really amplifies the flavors.

Once you have it, you may never go back to using A1 steak sauce ever again, so just be prepared for this to be a home-run in your house like it has been in mine!

Ingredients

Bunch of Parsley
Bunch of Cilantro
Juice of 1/2 Lime
1 tsp red wine vinegar or apple cider vinegar
1/2 small red onion
2 cloves garlic
1 tsp dried oregano
1/4 tsp- 1 tsp dried red pepper flakes (depending on how much heat you want)
1 tsp kosher salt
1/2 – 3/4 cup olive oil

Directions:

1. Using a food processor, pulse the cilantro, parsley, red onion, and garlic until everything is coarsely chopped.

2. Add the oregano, red pepper flakes, kosher salt, lime juice, and vinegar and pulse together.

3. Slowly drizzle in the olive oil until all of the herbs are covered, like in the picture.

4. Add salt and pepper to taste

Notes:

Chimichurri freezes well, so feel free to freeze your leftovers for another time. It is always best fresh though!

My next recipe will show you how I pair it with steak and creamy polenta, so stay tuned! 🙂

 

 

Hi Everyone! This post will not be related to food; however, I thought you’d like to hear about our new house! On New Year’s Day, Austin and I made an offer on a cute little house in Port St. Lucie, FL and the seller accepted our offer. After a lottttt of back and forth, inspections, […]

This post isn’t about cooking, but it still involves chocolate which is just as good, right? 🙂 So, I do a lot of browsing through Pinterest, and something that I’ve come across lately is posts about wellness baskets.  As someone who struggles with anxiety and depression, I think personal wellness is so important.  Sometimes we […]

Steak au Poivre is a French dish that consists of a steak coated with cracked peppercorns, drizzled with a nice gravy. The name alone sounds fancier than anything I’ve ever cooked, but I’ll tell you that it’s pretty straight forward. And damn is it delicious. I don’t usually make gravy with the drippings from my […]

Since we’re entering fall, I’m going to continue my trend and share another one of my favorite soups- the split pea.  I know, for some people it doesn’t look so pretty, but in 2017 green is the new black, and split pea soup is downright DELICIOUS!  It’s the perfect fall soup to cozy on up […]

Soup is one of the greatest gifts to the food world, in my humble opinion.  When I was a little girl, if you asked me what my favorite restaurant was, I’d eagerly tell you “Soup Plantation.” Soup Plantation, now Sweet Tomatoes, was one of the most lovely buffets that my young self ever set eyes […]
