Austin people love their meats!
This is one of my favorite marinades. Chimichurri is a flavorful sauce that originated in Argentina and is traditionally served with grilled meat. It is made with a blend of fresh herbs, garlic, and vinegar, and is known for its bright, tangy flavor. Here is a recipe for Buenos Aires-style chimichurri:
- 1 cup fresh parsley, finely chopped
- 1/2 cup fresh cilantro, finely chopped
- 4 cloves garlic, minced
- 1/2 cup olive oil
- 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
- 1 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1 teaspoon dried thyme
- 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional)
- Salt and pepper to taste
- In a small bowl, combine the parsley, cilantro, garlic, olive oil, vinegar, oregano, thyme, and red pepper flakes (if using).
- Mix well to combine.
- Season with salt and pepper to taste.
- Let the sauce sit for at least 30 minutes to allow the flavors to meld.
- Serve the chimichurri sauce alongside grilled meat, such as steak, chicken, or pork. It can also be used as a marinade or a condiment for sandwiches or wraps.
