Carne Asada with Chimichurri




What makes carne asada so flavorful is the marinade. I usually make a simple marinade with lime juice, garlic, cilantro and spices but as I also had parsley and mint, I decided to make a chimichurri sauce.


Chimichurri is an awesome oil based condiment for grilled meats. Traditional chimichurri has parsley, garlic, red pepper flakes, red wine vinegar, oregano and oil but there are many variations to this recipe. Since I was making carne asada, I also added cilantro, mint and lime juice.
