This was a good chimichurri sauce and will make it again. But, will slightly reduce the vinegar, as it was a bit too much for us. We don't eat much meat, so we just pan-fried a New York strip to rare, then thinly sliced it to share between the two of us. Made for Culinary Quest 2014.

Made this delicious sauce tonight to go on our steaks. I cubed up ribeye steaks vs. using sirloin and placed them on skewers. They were wonderful with the chimichurri sauce. Served with black beans and rice. Made for Culinary Quest - South America, 2014.

Seriously good! The sauce is excellent and adds substantially to a great cut of bbq'd beef. We grilled to medium-rare and served in mini pitas drizzled with more sauce and some salad for really excellent sandwiches. Thanks for a great recipe.
