This is probably one of my favorite sauces in the world. I love me some chimichurri! The downside is that chimichurri is best served (or maybe I should say, most often accompanies) steak. As you can probably guess, I don't really eat a lot of steak. But I love the sauce. I think it's really lovely on fish or shrimp as well as a sauce for pasta. But that's just me.
Also I just like to say chimichurri. 🙂Chimichurri Sauce, makes 1 cup. Slightly (as in barely) adapted from here.
1 cup (packed) parsley
1/4 cup (packed) cilantro
4 garlic cloves
1/3 cup olive oil
1/3 cup red wine vinegar
3/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/2 teaspoon cumin
salt + pepper
Place all ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth. Store unused sauce in an air tight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.Go ahead and get saucy. Do it. Do it. xo. Emma
When my boyfriend was at the store, he asked me what I wanted. I sent him a link to the blog post. By the time I got home from work, he had this EXACT meal ready for me. He’s pretty amazing, but your chimichurri sauce is freakin fantastic! This will now be a staple for my eggs, fajitas and fish!
Mmmmm. I have a ton of cilantro right now, so I think I’ll make this. If it’s good with steak, I bet it would be amazing on grilled portobello mushrooms. They have that deep, umami flavor that steak so often brings to the table.
Hi there, Carole’s Chatter is collecting recipes for sauces today. This is a good one. I do hope you pop over and link in. This is the link . Cheers
I had this for the first time the other day, and it is sooooo goooood!
wow, unexpected and kind of nice as well. I’m from Uruguay, did you know chimichurri is typycal form here? (and Argentina as well)… don’t enjoy it much myself though,the original one, yours seems more appealing however 🙂
This is it! T___________T Tears of joy!! An old room mate of mine used to cut up chicken breast & cook it in a sauce just like this — I never was able to get the recipe from him, but I know it had cilantro & parsley in it!! I’ve never been able to locate the item via internet searches, but when I saw your photos on my bloglovin’ feed, I knew that THIS was what I’d been searching for!! It only took 4 years, but you have TOTALLY made my day — no, YEAR! I’ll be cooking this up next week!! Thank-yooou!!
I first started making chimichurri for veggie burgers, but now I make it whenever I have leftover cilantro and parsley, and I’ll put it on anything. It’s great with breakfast burritos or even on biscuits.
Definitely going to try this! Always looking for non creamy sauces to have and this sounds perfect
I’m from Argentina (where chimichurri is from) and I must say down here people actually have it with red sausages mainly (Known as chorizos) and we definitely don’t punt any cilantro in it (cilantro has only begun to become known down here recently) The original recipe carries a lot less ingredients and is more like this: http://southamericanfood.about.com/od/saladssidedishes/r/chimichurri.htm
So yum!! love all the fresh ingredients 🙂
adding some avocado and lime juice makes a REALLY yummy sauce for tacos and tortilla chips!

HAHAHAHA I love that word too!
Even the color of the sauce makes the entire plate look immaculate! That looks like such a healthy plate — I’ve never tried to make Chimichurri sauce from scratch….it looks worth a try!

We actually DO have chimchurri in Germany 😉 There’s even a vegan restaurant in Frankfurt called Chimchurri #justsayin’
I don’t like cilantro but I might just leave it out 😀 Or substitute it with something. (cilantro gives me shivers and nightmares, no idea why…)
As an alternative to steak you can use it to marinate Portabellos, then grill them. Sooooo good!
This looks so good!! And chimichurri is reallllly fun to say 🙂
i had no idea Chimichurri was so easy! I’ve never actually made it myself. I definitely need to do this. Mmmmm.
