Chimichurri Sauce

Happy Monday!

It has definitely been a cooler day here today — in the 50s and breezy. It’s a far cry from our 70+ degrees that we had over the weekend. It was still a great day though!

Last week, I was the only one here. Tim was on a week long business trip, and the kids were with their mom over Spring Break vacation. Because I was alone, I was able to prep, cook and take pictures of 11 different recipes for you all. So there’s a lot in store and I can’t wait to share.

This Chimichurri Sauce is one of those recipes, and it’s a BIG favorite of mine. (Chimichurri is an uncooked, raw sauce typically used for grilled meats). I’ve made it a ton before… generally serving it over a steak based meal.

Before Tim left for the week, I was able to make Chimichurri Steak Tacos for the two of us again. It was the perfect send off meal!

He did the grilling and I took care of everything else. Man it was good! The steaks were grilled to perfection, and the Chimichurri Sauce had just the right amount of everything — fresh herbs, vinegar, garlic and heat.

If you’ve never tried this, you should definitely make it the next time you fire up the grill. You won’t regret it!

And bonus, the steak tacos will be on the blog next. 😉
