I went to a potluck dinner last weekend and one of the dishes was grilled flank steak with a chimichurri sauce. It was the hit of the party! I really think if we were not at a party some of the men would have licked the bowl, it was that good! I have never had chimichurri sauce before and I too fell in love with this oh so very healthy, good for you sauce. It is the perfect compliment to meat, fish or chicken.
