Chimichurri Marinade


Chimichurri Marinade is an authentic Argentinian sauce used to marinate beef or pork. This wonderful marinade can also be used on poultry or fish. It can be a little pricy to purchase a small jar that is already made in the store. But we have found that we love to make it ourselves, with a very similar outcome, and only a fraction of the cost.
