Chimichurri recipe

This is a delicious topper for a perfectly grilled steak.


1 small red onion, finely chopped

1 jalapeno, seeded and finely chopped 

1 small red pepper, finely chopped 

3 garlic cloves, finely chopped

3 tbsp red wine vinegar

1 tsp kosher salt, 

½ cup chopped parsley

½ cup chopped cilantro 

 ½ cup extra-virgin olive oil


Prep this with care, getting a fine chop is really important to have a nice smooth topping and not a chunky one.

Add all your ingredients in a bowl and mix - let it sit for 1-2 hours to let all the flavors come together.

Cook’s tip: You can use flavoured olive oils to add different flavors, a chili oil to make it spicy, a herby oil to add to your fresh herbs, but in the end be sure to use a high quality oil.
