Bring the delicious flavors of Argentinian cuisine to your home kitchen with Chimichurri. Although the exact origins of traditional chimichurri sauce are a bit unclear, many food historians believe it was invented by Argentinian nomadic horsemen and cowherds known as “gauchos” who used the sauce to flavor meat that had been cooked over open fires. With lore and folk heroism similar to the American cowboy or Caribbean pirates, gaucho culture flourished from the mid-18th to mid-19th centuries in both Argentina and Uruguay. They created their own culinary traditions that have become inextricable from Argentinian culture as a whole.

Our chimichurri recipe features Curious Spoon’s Chimichurri Sauce Starter, a combination of tangy tomatillos, herbs, and onion. When whisked together with water and olive oil, it recreates the traditional chimichurri condiment. This delicious sauce will enhance and brighten the taste of various grilled meats such as beef or poultry. Prepare a delicious meal that the whole family will love with the help of Curious Spoon’s easy-to-make Chimichurri.
