My family is from Argentina. And the one thing they know how to do is barbecue meat. One of the STAPLES of the Argentine barbecue is a green sauce called Chimichurri.
My grandmother was a Polish immigrant. So she knew how to make streudel and pyrogis and all kinds of polish dishes. But she also learned how to cook ARGENTINE staples.
Here is her CHIMICHURRI:
1 Cup finely chopped parsley
1 Tbsp red pepper flakes
1 Tbsp dry oregano
1 tsp paprika
4 garlic cloves - grated
1 tsp black pepper
2 Tbsp red wine vinegar
1 Cup of Olive Oil
1 tsp salt
Put all the ingredients in a mason jar with a lid, or small plastic container with a top.
Shake well until everything is mixed.
The sauce is ready. And as she would say in spanish:
“Hoy es rico. Manana mejor.” (Today it's good. Tomorrow even better)
