The chimichurri is served & sold at many of the restaurants all over in Miami. It is one of things that caught on - big time. I am one of those people who doesn't like basil so I leave it out of the recipe. Inactive prep time: 2 hours 35 minutes. This recipe courtesy of Emeril Lagasse, 2005. Update 06/26/10 . . . . use less oil - instead of 1 cup bring it down to 1/2 cup and then work from there.
