- SERVINGS: MAKES ABOUT 2 CUPS
This parsley and garlic sauce is all you need to serve beef Argentinean style. It's easy to make, but it's important to use fresh parsley and high-quality olive oil. The jalapeño isn't strictly traditional—Argentineans would use crushed red pepper—but Steven Raichlen likes its grassy flavor and fire.
