So much to Love

Traditional chimichurri owns unique, profound and herbaceous tones. Moreover, pouring a generous portion of red wine vinegar tones down any strong garlic qualities present. In addition, a touch of lemon juice strengthens the acidic qualities for a perfectly balanced en result.

Beef steak

The herbal/oily mix poured in a stream over a grilled piece of skirt steak is pure perfection. In fact, own the process by choosing your favorite cut of beef. For example, below are some great options to choose from:

  • Outside skirt steak
  • Inside skirt steak
  • Flank steak
  • Flat iron
  • Your choice of steak
Make Recipe Without a Molcajete

Personally, I love to make chimichurri sauce in a molcajete. For instance, the process of mashing down the ingredients with the pestle allows the oils to naturally release adding depth of flavor. In other words, a mortar and pestle makes everything tastes much better. In case, you don’t own a molcajete, here is another great way to make this sauce. (See recipe below)
