Slather your steak in a savory sauce that will wow guests and make taste buds sing! Chimichurri sauce originated in Argentina, but lucky for us, this delicious blend of flavor-packed herbs and spices has made it way all the way to our plates for us to indulge in and enjoy. As with many recipes, you can slightly alter the ingredients to suit your palate; add more pepper for a stronger kick, and substitute vinegar for lemon juice for less tang and more zest.
