Chimichurri Sauce

 💚 Gimme, gimme chimi chimi! This vibrant green Argentinian sauce is great on lean cuts of red meat, like skirt or flank steak. It may not be #FiberFULL but wow, is this sauce flavorFUL! 💚

INGREDIENTS (serves 12)

  • 2 jalapeño chilis
  • 2 cups cilantro leaves and sprigs, finely chopped
  • 2 cups parsley leaves and sprigs, finely chopped
  • 2 medium cloves garlic, minced (about 2 teaspoons)
  • 1/4 cup lime juice (juice from 3 to 4 limes)
  • 3 tablespoons dry red wine
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon red-wine vinegar
  • 3/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • PREPARATIONS

    1. Prepare a grill or turn on a broiler (or gas burner). Char the jalapeños until blackened on all sides and soft, (about 5 minutes). Place them in a small bowl covered with a plate or towel and allow the skins to steam and loosen. Peel, stem, and seed the chilis.
    2. In a food processor or blender, combine the jalapeños, cilantro, parsley, garlic, lime juice, red wine, olive oil, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Pulse (or blend) until the mixture is a coarse puree. Taste and adjust for salt and blend again.
    3. Serve over steak, as a sauce or use as marinade when prepping.
