We recommend this flavor most with red meat.

Add Mediterranean flavor to your favorite meats, pasta, rice, couscous or anti pasta!

CHIMICHURRI IS MUCH MORE THAN A STEAK SAUCE, YOU CAN USE IT ON ALMOST EVERYTHING.

IT'S GREAT AS A MARINADE OR CONDIMENT FOR STEAK, CHICKEN , FISH, HAMBURGERS, SAUSAGES, RIBS AND CHICKEN WINGS. IT'S ALSO GREAT AS A CONDIMENT FOR RICE, PASTA, VEGETABLES OR INCORPORATED INTO VARIOUS SAUCES.

Pasta

After fully cooking your pasta of choice incorporate chimichurri in the following way:
  • Toss pasta with chimichurri and extra olive oil to taste - flavorful and light!
  • Incorporate chimichurri into a cream based sauce or a tomato based sauce.

Snacks

Chimichurri is great for snacks and hors d’oeuvrs, the possibilities are endless: Sample plate of dry sausage, cheeses, vegetables and bread such as a baguette or fine crackers and chimichurri as a dipping sauce.

Bruschetta: take a slice of bread (French bread works well) and toast individually with chimichurri spread on top; after slightly toasting you can place a slice of tomato, a slice of procuitto and mozzarella cheese and warm until cheese is melted. After cheese is melted serve and decorate with a dab of chimichurri!

Milanesa (Breaded meats)

Using either beef or chicken in very thin slices soak in egg batter with salt and pepper to taste. Then cover both sides with Italian bread crumbs and fry in vegetable oil until golden brown. That's it! Now Chimichurri can be served over or on the side as a garnish for a delicious and very traditional Argentinean dish.

A Gaucho Ranch tip: add a fried egg over Milanesa and get ready to enjoy this incredibly delicious Argentinean plate.

Choripan (Sausage sandwich)

Grill your favorite Italian sausage or bratwurst and butterfly once cooked.
 
Place in slightly toasted French or Italian baguette and spread chimichurri over sausage.

Seafood

  • Saute shrimp in a skillet, as if preparing shrimp scampi, with chimichurri, olive oil or butter and white wine. Simply delicious!
  • If cooking your fish in the oven, after partially cooking both sides cover fish with chimichurri and perhaps extra vinager or lemon juice, you'll love the taste.

And finally the grill!

Chimichurri can be used as a marinade or condiment for grilled beef, chicken, pork and fish on the same plate or in a separate dish.
