Texas Style Chimichurri Sauce

Texas Style Chimichurri Sauce

3 cups cilantro leaves, chopped
2 cups parsley leaves, chopped
1/2 cup red wine vinegar
1/2 cup olive oil
2 tablespoons lime juice
2 tablespoons orange juice
1/4 cup minced shallots
3 tablespoons minced jalapeno
Salt and pepper to taste

Combine all ingredients in a bowl and allow to marinate
for at least 1 hour before using.  This is fabulous on
any steak.  It’s nice fresh flavor and light acidity
accentuates rich grilled meat.  It can also be a great marinade.

    My family and I tried this sauce. It has a very strong citric taste from the cilantro and juices added. It is better as just the sauce, not as a marinade. The next time we make this sauce, I wouldn’t use as much cilantro and put a little garlic in it. Over all 6 out of 10 in taste.

    Thanks for the thoughts! I, too, can get easily overpowered by cilantro. Good tips. Thanks for letting us know what you think.
