Chimichurri Sauce is a lovely accompaniment to many meats and fish dishes. The combination of garlic, shallots, parsley and oregano give this a bright, tangy flavor.
This sauce originates from South America and has a pesto-like consistency. Its traditional use is over a simple grilled steak.
Place the shallot, parsley, oregano, and garlic in the food processor and pulse it until you have a chunky paste but don’t let it get too pulverized. This is a rustic sauce and you want to see all the components.
The liquids get stirred in: extra-virgin olive oil and red wine vinegar. Finally stir in the red pepper flakes. That’s all there is to making this bright, flavor-forward sauce!
