Ingredients

    1/2 cup olive oil

    2 tbsp red wine vinegar

    1/2 cup finely chopped parsley

    3-4 cloves garlic, finely chopped or minced

    2 small red chilies, or 1 red chili, deseeded and finely chopped (about 1 tbsp finely chopped chili)

    3/4 tsp dried La Fe Oregano

    1 level tsp coarse salt

    La Fe Black pepper, to taste (about 1/2 tsp)

Directions

  • STEP ONE

    Mix all ingredients together in a bowl. Allow to sit for 5-10 minutes to release all of the flavours into the oil before using. Ideally, let it sit for more than 2 hours, if time allows.

  • STEP TWO

    Chimichurri can be prepared earlier than needed, and refrigerated for 24 hours, if needed.

  • STEP THREE

    Use to baste meats (chicken or steaks) while grilling or barbecuing. We don’t use it as a marinade, but choose to baste our meats with chimichurri instead. However, you can use it as a marinade if you wish. Also, add a couple of tablespoons over your steak to serve.
