Chimichurri Steak

December 1, 2010

This recipe reminds me of Buenos Aires all day long.  I have spent many weeks at a time in different South American countries and so when I arrived there for the first time I was surprised to feel I had arrived in the “Europe” of South America.  A bit shocking at the first hours but a welcome treat from sometimes “roughing” it in other parts of the continent.

  • 2 T. Red Wine Vinegar
  • 1 t. Salt
  • 1/4 T. Red Pepper Flake

  • Fresh Parsley (for Garnish)

 Preparation

  1. In a food processor; use chopping blade for onion and garlic until finely chopped
  2. Add the parsley, cilantro and puree
