Chimichurri sauce recipe
24 August 2009 @ 13:25

Chimichurri is a sauce or marinade orginally from from Argentina, so not strictly Spanish.  However, I've seen a lot of bars and restaurants in Spain serving Chimichurri.  It is usually served with grilled meat and is delicious!

½ Cup Olive Oil
¼ Cup Red Wine Vinegar
¼ Cup Water
1 small bunch flat leaf-parsley chopped finely
4 cloves garlic peeled and crushed
½ of a sweet red pepper, deseeded and finely chopped
1 tomato; peeled, deseeded, finely chopped
1 tablespoon dried oregano
1 tablespoon paprika powder
1 Bay leaf chopped finely
1 tablespoon sea salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground ground black pepper
2 tablespoons hot chili flakes (or to taste)

-In a large bowl, add all of the ingredients except for the oil and vinegar and mix well
-Leave to stand and amalgamate for 30 minutes
-Add the vinegar and oil, whisk well and allow to stand for a further 30 minutes
-Pour the mixture into a suitable sterilised jar and refrigerate for 3 days prior to use for best results

The name intrigued me-sounds like 'chim chim churee' from Mary Poppins-and I think I'll try it. BUT what is the ''1 chopped finely" ingredient?

Sandra, I've taken the "'1 chopped finely" off the ingedient list. It was an error.
