Three different styles of chimichurri

We are going to make 3 different styles of chimichurri to brighten up some nice steaks. The original version is simply beautiful but why not try to make it better.

Let’s make a spicy one with a nice afterburn and a jalapeño and cheese version to make it interesting.

Ingredients

Classic chimichurri

  • Half a cup of chopped parsley
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • 1/2 cup of extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tbsp of red wine vinegar
  • 3 tsp of dry oregano
  • salt and ground black pepper to taste

Spicy chimichurri

  • All of the above ingredients
  • 6 sundried and marinated tomatoes
  • 1 chipotle pepper in adobo sauce
  • 1/2 red hot chili pepper
  • juice of half a lime

Cheese chimichurri

  • All the ingredients for the classic chimichurri
  • a tbsp of pickled jalapeño
  • 75 gram of English Cheddar

How to

Classic chimichurri

  1. Chop the garlic, sprinkle on some salt and use the top of your knife to work it into a paste.
  2. Put it in a bowl with the parsley, the olive oil, red wine vinegar, oregano, and add some salt and pepper by taste.
  3. Mix it all up and you’re done.

Spicy chimichurri

  1. For the spicy version, you start with the classic chimichurri.
  2. Add some chopped sun-dried tomato, chipotle pepper, and the half chili pepper. Now add the lime juice to brighten it up.
