This is the very best ever Paleo chimichurri sauce recipe that exists in the whole world and it is super, super easy to make.
In our family we make grass-fed crockpot pork roast a lot but since my husband eats no sugar and I eat very little (mostly honey or maple syrup ), bbq sauce - even a paleo bbq sauce - isn't a good option for us. Then I remembered how I used to make an awesome chimichurri recipe but got out of the habit of it and I don't know why because it's an awesome sauce.
My front yard is full of overgrown basil so I whipped up this sauce in a few minutes. It's so pretty and SO GOOD! I'm not kidding. My 8-year-old daughter ate a ton of it (my other children wouldn't even try it).
My husband said this sauce is so good he would drink it! I think I would too. I prefer basil in it but the traditional way of making it is with parsley. So if you can't get basil for a good price, just get a bunch of parsley for really cheap at the grocery store. Since I wrote this post I have decided that I really like this made with cilantro too.
You should try all of them, basil, cilantro, and parsley and see which you prefer. To tell the truth I can't tell a whole lot of difference. Why do I like this chimichurri so much? It's fresh, light and flavorful. It has a bright color and flavor and turns ordinary meat into something really delicious.
I love the tang of the lemon juice with the zip of the garlic and the flavor of the fresh herbs. Try the sauce then let me know how you've used it and give us all some great ideas. It's delicious on steak, Churrasco meat, fish and chicken and - Oh! I bet this would be amazing on eggs. . . Heck, I'll eat it on anything!
