Chimichurri is a major flavor profile down here in South Florida with our Latin culinary inspiration, so when Yvonne Aguerro made a comment about “Chimichurri Burgers” for the “Burger Society” giveaway, I knew I had a winner on my hands. This Latin inspired burger should definitely make it to the Burger Society line up and could be a great addition to your steaks and burgers at home.
Chimichurri is a really popular condiment of Argentinian origin, and you can find it at many restaurants and steak houses down here in Miami, which has a huge Argentinian population.
Here’s is Yvonne’s recipe, which has inspiration from her Argentinian brother in-law:
“My Chimiichurri is very basic I learned it from my sister’s husband he is from Argentina (his recipe is very simple – but there are many ways to do it) he puts it on not only steaks, burgers but it’s so delicious on (Argentinean or Italian sausage – on the grill) once done – put into any a bun add the chimichurri and you are good to go.
Chimichurri recipe (measurements are guesstimation) :
- Parsley ( just the leaves) a bunch
- Crushed garlic – about 6 cloves
- Olive oil – ¼ cup
- Salt and pepper if you wish, sometimes I add it others not
Just remember the more garlic you add the stronger the heartburn. Lol
Note: many like to add onions, white vinegar and oregano. Happy experimenting!!”
Many of you may remember that Scott and I went to Argentina on our honeymoon and it was a griller’s paradise. When I got home, I made a chimichurri sauce for sirloin kebabs that I found on the weber grilling app. (I LOVE apps, so a grilling app is even more perfect). This is Jamie Purviance’s recipe but you can adjust however you like. As Yvonne stated, the more garlic the stronger the heartburn – and the more pungent your breath!
