How to Make It


In a food processor, combine the parsley, vinegar, garlic, oregano and crushed red pepper. Process until smooth; season with salt and pepper. Transfer the sauce to a bowl and pour the olive oil over the mixture. Let stand for at least 20 minutes.

Make Ahead

The chimichurri can be refrigerated overnight. Bring to room temperature before serving.

Serve With

This traditional chimichurri recipe is incredibly versatile. Serve it over beautifully charred steaks or as a sauce for a mixed grill. It’s also perfect with grilled chicken or seared tuna.

Suggested Pairing

Chimichurri sauce originated in Argentina as a complement to the country's great grass-fed beef; similarly, a smoky Argentine Malbec will make a great partner to grilled steaks topped with this expert sauce.

Review Body: This was the best Chimichurri recipe my husband and I have ever made.  It was very authentic to what some of the Argentine chefs have made.  Very well balanced.  It was so addicting.  I kept drizzling it on my baguette while waiting for our steaks to cook.  This is definitely a keeper.

Review Body: Yum, we ate this with steak and potatoes. I didn't have fresh oregano so I just substituted a pinch of dried. This is delicious and I imagine you can eat this with anything you grill.
