Dishing Up the Dirt

Chimichurri Sauce

Chimichurri is a popular Argentinian sauce used mainly as a condiment for grilled meats. The flavors are bold, fresh and downright delicious. This sauce doubles as a marinade and an accompaniment for all cuts of beef but I particularly love it drizzled over roasted cauliflower or potatoes for a simple vegetarian main course.
