Total Time

This is a sauce from Churasco's, a local restaurant here in Houston that serves South American fare. At the restaurant this is served at the table with plantain chips as an appetizer and is also used to marinade their signature steaks with. It's good with other grilled meats, salmon,poultry, hot pasta, and to dress green salads. It's such a popular item that the Cordu'a brothers bottle it to sell in grocery stores.

I love the chimichurri from Churrasco's and this was very close. It seemed just slightly too vinegary, but this was just a couple hours after making it, so maybe the leftovers will mellow out a bit. Still, very good.
