Chimichurri on Everything

Have you been watching much soccer lately?

I don’t know if I’ve mentioned this on the blog before, but Parrish LIVES for soccer. I’m used to watching a bit of soccer on the weekends, or recording games when we leave the house. BUT there is nothing like the World Cup!

For the next month, it’s pretty much a guarantee that I’ll be watching soccer every single day, and you know what, that’s fine with me! What an exciting World Cup it has been so far!

Last night Parrish and I had big plans to watch the USA VS Ghana game, and I planned a special treat for supper to celebrate.

Grilled Sirloin Steaks topped with fresh chimichurri – so good!

Since we don’t actually eat a lot of red meat, anytime we grill steaks at home it feels like a special treat.

And the chimichurri, well that just takes it over the top!

Delicious on steaks, grilled or roasted veggies, even buttery toast, chimichurri is crazy EASY to make!

In a food processor: one cup parsley, 1/2 cup cilantro, 1/2 cup olive oil, 1/3 cup red wine vinegar, 2 cloves of garlic, 3/4 tsp. crushed red pepper (or 1/2 if you don’t like spicy), 1/2 tsp. cumin, 1/2 tsp. salt

Process all of the above  ingredients until the parsley and cilantro are finely chopped.

That’s it! So easy and so good – in fact, last night was Parrish’s first chimichurri experience and he’s in love!

Expect to see this sauce all summer long!
