Chimichurri

Hola Amigo/Ciao Senior

This may seem like a weird way to start a post but there is a reason for this.

Chimichurri is a South American condiment that looks very much like Pesto. As a matter of fact if you really think about it Chimichurri is Pesto meets South America and it carries as much of a kick as you like.

I have really become a fan of Chinchurri lately because it goes very well with all kinds of meats but especially red meats AND it’s so easy to make and lasts a while in the fridge so I hope you like this one.

INGREDIENTS:

1 cup firmly packed fresh flat-leaf parsley, trimmed of thick stems

1 cup firmly packed Cilantro

3-4 garlic cloves (or more depending on your penchant for garlic)

2 Tbsps fresh oregano leaves (can sub 2 teaspoons dried oregano)

1/2 cup olive oil

2 Tbsp red or white wine vinegar

1 teaspoon sea salt

1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes

METHOD:

–           Finely chop the parsley, cilantro, fresh oregano, and garlic (or process in a food processor several pulses). Place in a small bowl.

–           Stir in the olive oil, vinegar, salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes. Adjust seasonings.

Serve immediately or refrigerate. If chilled, return to room temperature before serving. Can keep for a day or two.

    I add Goat Cheese to some CHIMICHURRI and it makes an excellent condiment for sandwiches and a topping on steak

    views of all mates about this article, while I am also
    keen of getting familiarity.

    I’m amazed, I must say. Seldom do I encounter a blog that’s equally educative and amusing,
    and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head.
    The issue is something that not enough people are speaking intelligently about.
    Now i’m very happy that I came across this during my search for something relating to this.
