RECIPE BACKSTORY
Chimichurri sauce is a popular marinade among Argentine Gauchos (South American “cowboys,” you could call them) who grill in an open barbecue in the Pampas. I was first inspired to make this recipe at a Pampas-style steakhouse after meeting my wonderful pal, Chef Jospeh. I couldn’t believe how amazing the steak was, and I was set on recreating it in my own kitchen.
