This chimuchurri sauce is a great way to take things up a notch with your barbecue. With parsley, garlic, onion, vinegar, and lemon juice, your food gets a nice kick of flavor. Chimichurri is insanely good on beef, and it’s incredibly easy since your food processor does all the work! This recipe (from food.com) makes a fairly large batch, so I always set aside about half a cup to use as a garnish.
You will need:
- 1 bunch of flat leaf parsley
- 8 cloves garlic, roughly chopped
- 3/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
- 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
- 1/2 of a lemon, juiced
- 1 tablespoon chopped red onion
- salt and pepper to taste
First, cut the stems off of the parsley.
Throw the parsley into the food processor first, and then pulse a few times to give it a nice chop.
From there, you just add the rest of your ingredients to the bowl and let the food processor do all the work. Add a little salt and pepper and taste as you go along, making sure to pulse the mixture so your seasoning is blended in.
I like to marinate flank steak in the sauce a day before I plan on grilling.
