Expert Tips

You can use dried herb seasonings instead of fresh herbs if you prefer.

Chimichurri sauce is a classic of Argentinian cuisine and it’s also popular in Uruguay, since both are countries where grilling is as popular as soccer. Because of this, there is a great passion for the ingredients and their preparation. This recipe I share with you is based on the traditional chimichurri flavors with a twist, since I am not only using parsley but also fresh basil from my garden. Use this sauce to accompany your grilled beef. Let’s get cooking!

If refrigerated in a suitable container, this sauce may last up to two weeks.

You can add other aromatic spices like coriander, paprika, cumin, thyme, and bay leaf to give an additional special flavor to your chimichurri.

Directions

  • 1 Combine all the ingredients in a bowl. Pour the sauce into a plastic or glass container with a lid. Refrigerate the sauce, preferably 24 hours.
  • 2 Serve on a gravy boat as an accompaniment for grilled meats.
