    Manami's Note:

    From: July Fourth, Published July 2007, on the Grill & Pairing of the Day: Big, Balanced Red Wines, July 2008, Food & Wine Magazine, Recipe by Laurent Tourondel. The chimichurri sauce made with parsley, garlic & olive oil is the ubiquitous accompaniement to grilled meats in Argentina; when serving steak, Chef Turondel often prefers its clean, sharp flavors to richer French sauces like bernaise or red wine sauce. The tang of chimichurri is especially delicious with his smokey steaks, seasoned with both smoked sea salt and smoked pepper. Make the sauce a day ahead - it will keep very well. :)

      Chimichurri sauce originated in Argentina as a complement to the country’s great grass-fed beef; similarly, a smoky Argentine Malbec will make a great partner to Tourondel’s smoky strip steaks. Try the jammy 2005 Budini or the black cherry-rich 2005 Tikal Amorio.
