    LifeIsGood's Note:

    This is an adaptation of an Argentine chimichurri sauce served over grilled meat. In this case, it's a cilantro mint chimichurri topping some broiled lamb chops. I would imagine the chimichurri would be great over steak, chicken or pork, too. The chimichurri is best eaten the day it is made, due to the fresh herbs used. Recipe courtesty of Ingrid Hoffmann.

    Chimichurri Sauce



    1. 1
    2. 2
      Combine the cilantro, parsley, mint, serrano chile, rice vinegar, lime juice, honey and salt into a food processor bowl and pulse into a paste. With the food processor running, gradually add the olive oil, continuing to process until the sauce is smooth, scraping down the sides of the food processor as necessary. Transfer the chimichurri to a bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Refreigerate for up to 3 hours. *Bring to room temperature before serving.
    3. 3
    4. 4
      Prehat broiler to high and place the oven rack at its highest position.
    5. 5
      Season the lamb with salt and pepper. Heat the olive oil in a large oven-safe skillet over high heat. Add the lamb chops and brown on all sides, about 10 minutes total. Add the rosemary and the garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1-2 minutes. Transfer the skillet to the broiler and cook until the lamb is still pink in the center, about 5 minutes or so.
    6. 6
      Serve the chops from the oven with a spoonful of the chimichurri drizzled on top. Enjoy!

      We love lamb chops and I love cilantro so this recipe caught my eye. I used the herbs for the chops as posted but used the grill to cook them. I'm a total heat wimp so I reduced the peppers by half. It was enough of a bite to know that it was an ingredient but not so hot as to make it unpalatable for me. I really loved this sauce and expect to make it often. Thanks so much for posting!
