My Favorite Chimichurri Recipe
I’m sharing a secret with you guys today and it’s a good one. It’s a recipe (surprise), and it’s my absolute FAVORITE Chimichurri recipe. Not to toot my own horn or anything, but this stuff is damn good.
What is Chimichurri?
Chimichurri is an herby, flavorful green sauce made in Argentinian and Uruguayan cuisine. It’s usually made with chopped parsley, oregano, garlic, olive oil and red wine vinegar, and is traditionally served with grilled meats. I especially like it on this chimichurri steak salad. 🙂
So what’s different about mine? What makes it the best?
Imma tell you.
Don’t get me wrong, the traditional stuff is good, but this version is gooooood. So here’s what we did differently.
We wanted to create a slightly more complex flavor to cut some of the bitterness that can come from such a leafy herb-based sauce. So to spice things up, we added cilantro (because we LOVE cilantro and it tastes good).
We also chose to add lime to our chimichurri, because lime is a great pairing for leafy herbs like cilantro and parsley. It really brightens the overall flavor profile.
And last but not least, we finished our favorite chimichurri recipe off with two teaspoons of honey. This was a total game-changer, as it really helps to cut any bitterness from all those herbs.
The result is a refreshing, flavorful sauce that jazzes up any dish.
You didn’t hear it from me, but we might be dropping a new recipe with this chimichurri sauce next Tuesday…Let’s just say I’m drooling thinking about it.
