Living in Alberta, we eat a LOT of steak. Don’t get me wrong, I love steak but sometimes I just get tired of it. It’s just so….done, you know? I realize that there are many variations that we could/should try but we just haven’t….until tonight. A few years ago, one of our friends made chimichurri sauce when we were camping. At the time, I thought “Yum! I should totally make this.” but then I never did. I figured that since it tasted awesome that it must be hard to make. I am amazed (and happy) at how wrong I was.
Tonight friends visited for dinner and I knew that they both avoid excessive carbs. Since pretty much all bbq sauces fall in to the “heavily carby” category, I wanted to try something different. Ding…chimichurri sauce popped in to my head and I had to make it. Fresh and garlic-y, chimichurri is a delicious addition to any grilled meat. We had honey garlic chicken sausages with our steak tonight and I found myself sopping up pools of chimichurri with it too.
