Now that I have gotten my long-winded disclaimer out of the way, I wanted to share a chimichurri sauce I created to top my delicious grilled steak with. Yummers! If you are reading this and you know me, like know me, know me, you know that I am an avid SAUCE fanatic! I love a good homemade sauce, but just sauces in general, because I'm saucy! haha!!
Moving right along, this sauce is super easy to make and it freezes pretty well. Here's what you'll need:
- 1 bunch of Parsley
- 1 bunch of Cilantro
- 4 Garlic Cloves
- 3 Green Onions
- 3 Tbs of Apple Cider Vinegar
- 1 Tsp of Lemon Juice
- 1/2 cup of Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- Seasonings: Red Pepper Flakes, Garlic Salt, Garlic Powder, Black Pepper, Oregano, Cumin (sorry guys, no exact measurements, as I measure to taste - you should do the same. Don't go overboard!)
Simply place all of your ingredients into a food processor (or blender) and pulse away until it reaches a smooth consistency. You can add more Olive Oil to get it really creamy. Only use what you need and of course, you can freeze the rest. Just think of yourself in a Brazilian Steakhouse (if you enjoy that sort of thing)!
So this sauce, is obviously VEGAN, but I do not want to think of anything vegan that would be good to top it off with. If you do eat meat, aside from beef, you can find some delicious shrimp and chicken recipes to top this chimichurri sauce with.
