Spicy Chimichurri Sauce for Grilled Flank Steak


I'm one of those people that don't didn't like cilantro.  Lately, its been sneaking into things I've tried and I, gulp, have really gotten a taste for it.  Here's the secret: I think it is best used subtly.  It really shines when it is in the background.  When I've tried it in the past, so many times it has been used in too much excess and it overpowered the recipe convincing me that I didn't like it.

This chimichurri sauce is soooo flavorful.  Mix it together without the fresh herbs, then add them just before serving.  It is great as a marinade for beef or veggies or can be used as a sauce.

  2. The Chimichurri Sauce looks amazing. I have to tell you I mentioned your watermelon cutting in my recent blog post. http://vividengrossments.blogspot.com/
    It really took the mystery out of watermelon cutting. Love your blog!
