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! MORE + LESS -
