Latin Beef Brisket With Chimichurri

READY IN: 4hrs 15mins
Recipe by Oolala

This comes from "Adventures in Jewish Cooking" and I haven't made it yet. This recipe is a lot more detailed than the other easy ones I have posted. I love the spices used. Note, this has a 24-48 hour marination and I didn't include it in the recipe time.

There is a problem with this recipe. The original (from Jeffrey Nathan's book) calls for 1 1/4 c of oil in the marinade. You really need that.
