I had some friends over for dinner tonight. We ended up with 4 adults and 6 kids, ages almost-3 to 13. The menu was:
- Salsa, Guacamole, and Chips for nibblies beforehand
- Pork Tenderloin
- Sirloin (barbecued)
- Pasta with Ricotta
- Oven Fried Potatoes with garlic, cumin, and paprika
- Baked Green Beans
- Delicious Spinach Salad from a friend
- Chimichurri Sauce
- Red Velvet Cake
The chimichurri sauce was the hit of the night and I promised I’d post the link, so here you go, Gus!
Serve with sliced steak.
I saw a few variations of chimichurri sauce. Some had jalapenos, some had vinegar instead of lemon juice. A few had oregano as well as parsley. Some had cayenne instead of the red pepper flakes. Most recipes I tend to experiment a bit with, but this one is so good my only question is how much garlic to add. The cloves I had tonight were huge (but not elephant garlic) so I only used 4. I probably would have used 6-8 normal sized one. Many of the recipes had salt and pepper as well, but to me it tasted great without the salt.
