Fresh Homemade Chimichurri

Fresh Homemade Chimichurri

The perfect accompaniment to a succulent steak, chimichurri is a popular Argentine BBQ sauce consisting of a range of fresh herbs and spices, mixed with olive oil and white wine vinegar.  Here's our favourite recipe.


  • 280ml olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons of white wine vinegar
  • 1 bunch of parsley
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • 1 red chilli
  • 3/4 tablespoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt 
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper

What to Do

  1. Pour the olive oil and white wine vinegar in to a bowl
  2. Finely chop the garlic, herbs and spices and add to the oil and vinegar mix.  Stir well and leave for at least 3 hours to allow the flavours to combine. 
  3. Use either to baste meat over the BBQ or add a couple of teaspoons to the top of the meat prior to serving.  
Can be made 24 hours ahead of time and stored in the refrigerator but remove about an hour before use so it is at room temperature.
