Argentina, where this sauce hails from, is braai country, just like South Africa. Any piece of meat off the grill would love it if you served chimichurri at its side.

Make way for chimichurri, a gently spiced, fresh new way to enjoy a steak.

Use chimichurri like you use tomato sauce. Just put it on everything. Chimichurri really respects a good piece of meat by complementing its natural flavour rather than smothering it. Try marinating chicken in chimichurri before roasting slowly, in a medium oven.
Spoon sauce into ice cube trays, and once frozen, store in a ziplock bag, for portioning out as needed. The whole jar can also be stored in the freezer without cracking.
Keep this fresh sauce in the fridge. Always. If your fridge is not that cold, rather store in the freezer to prolong shelf life.
Keep it clean
Always dip in with a clean spoon to avoid contamination. No added preservatives, remember.
