Chimichurri Sauce

Usually when I cook I don't really use recipes... but this delicious steak dinner involves a chimichurri sauce worthy of sharing. Chimichurri is basically Argentinian pesto with parsley instead of basil. Super easy to make. And, you should know by now, that I love the idea of super simple recipes that impress. The best part is you probably have everything in your house besides the parsley. So, buy some parsley and invite someone over for dinner. I'm pretty sure most people will think you are serving them something fancy if you serve them steak with chimichurri... your secret is safe with me.

Happy Cooking!


  • 1 cup loosely packed flat-leaf parsley
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 Tablespoon fresh oregano leaves (or 2 tsp. dried oregano)
  • 2 Tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • Salt, Pepper, Crushed Red Pepper


Add ingredients to food processor and pulse until combined. Add salt, pepper, and crushed red pepper to taste. (We also added some lemon for a little freshness).
