With the nicer weather upon us I’m sure we will all be doing more grilling. At least I know I will be. This sauce is perfect. Chimichurri can be used when cooking or as a condiment for meats. That’s typically the way I use a chimichurri!
The flavors in the chimichurri really bring out the flavors in the meat! The good thing about this sauce is that it can be stored in the refrigerator for 2-3 weeks. So cook up lots of grilled meats and serve with this yummy sauce!
1/2 C & 1T olive oil
2 bunches cilantro, stems removed
1 bunch flat leaf parsley, stems removed
3 garlic cloves
1 small red onion
2 limes, juiced
1 1/2 T red wine vinegar
1 t onion powder
1 t garlic powder
1/2 t Salt
1/2 t Pepper
Sprinkle: Red Pepper Flakes
Directions: Add all ingredients to a food processor. Pulse several times until all is minced up. Add more oil as needed. Once completed you can add to a mason jar or container and put in the refrigerator until ready to use.
Note: If you have a lime that seems a little to firm it may not produce a lot of juice. You can place in the microwave for about 10-15 seconds which will help get as much juice as possible. Also, watch the amount of garlic. It can become overpowering in the sauce. If this happens you can add a small, I mean small amount of sugar. Like no more than a half of teaspoon. This will help mellow out the flavor of the garlic.
