This is a fresh, zingy sauce with a kick, that is the perfect accompaniment to a sizzling steak or seafood.
The first time I tasted Chimichurri was at an Argentinian Steak House with my family for a birthday meal. I was blown away and it opened my mind that there were exciting flavours out there other than the usual peppercorn or Diane sauce.
Chimichurri was first created in Argentina and many variations exist, but key ingredients include fresh parsley, oil, vinegar, garlic and chilli flakes. In the past I’ve also added coriander (cilantro), oregano, lemon and lime.
Chimichurri is pretty healthy and is also a great alternative to a creamy and buttery steak sauce if you’re looking to lose weight!
Its easy to make and be stored fresh in the fridge for 2-3 days. I wouldn’t recommend keeping it any longer as the fresh flavours are what makes this an incredible sauce!
