This famous Argentinean sauce is perfect for any grilled foods. My catering customers love this sauce on garlic crostini with grilled flank steak slices.

This recipe needs a lot of work. Use 1 bunch of fresh Parsley minus stems. Use 1 bunch cilantro with the stems. Use 1/2 red onion and 2 cloves fresh garlic. Nix the cumin dried oregano and add some lemon juice and the recipe is golden. Read More

SOOOOO AMAZING!!!! I made this dipping sauce today to go with a roasted chicken recipe on here- but I did change it a bit... I didn't have fresh parsley but since I always have (and love) fresh cilantro I used that instead- I figured it would compliment the cumin nicely and it was SOOOOO GOOD! Everyone LOOOOOVVVVEED it!!! I'll try the parsley but the cilantro was so delicious I know I'll use that again. Thank you! :) Read More

I made this as written except I used cilantro (and plenty of it) instead of regular parsley. It is very good and stores well in the fridge. We also served it with the Simple Whole Roasted Chicken recipe that everyone else raved about. It was very good although it somewhat obliterated the nice flavor of the chicken. I've heard chimichurri referred to as the Argentinian equivalent of ketchup, so I have been trying it on different things. We've had it on steak - excellent. I've used it on sandwiches - excellent. It seems to be a very good all purpose sauce. I'll have to try it with the parsley one of these days. Read More

CookinCowgirls Rock! I live in Mexico and there are an abundance of Argentinian restaurants serving Chimichurri Sauce. None, and I mean None, serve a better sauce than this. I will make this again and again. Thanks! Read More

I made this to go with the Simple Roasted Chicken Recipe that was recommended and it blew my wife away. The first time I made the Chicken dish on its own and my family still enjoyed it. However, this time was special thanks to the Chimichurri sauce. My wife was laughing with excitement. I threw in chopped carrots and cauliflower together with the chicken and they were great having been marinated in the juices from the chicken and the ingredients. After I advised my wife and father-in-law to spread the sauce, of which they were curious as to what it was, it was OVER! Thank you, this recipe is a definite mind-blowing keeper. Read More

Yummy! I had been looking for something yummy to serve with my grilled chicken. I did add a little extra parsley and garlic. I also chopped up some green onion as well and added them. Taste just like the sauce we got in a Brazilian restaurant we have visited. Read More

I tried this recipe and found it a very good match for my tastebuds. Although I liked it very much not ALL of the family did. That is just a difference in people NOT because it is a bad recipe. Read More
