I’ve been on quite the chimichurri kick lately. It has all the flavor you never knew you needed. It’s perfect as a marinade for beef or as a topping to your favorite meat. It may not be traditional, but added to a fried egg and you’ve got yourself one flavorful breakfast!


4 garlic cloves, thinly sliced or finely chopped

2 teaspoons crushed red pepper

1/4 cup red wine vinegar

1 tsp. kosher salt, plus more

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

1/2 cup finely chopped cilantro

1/4 cup finely chopped flat-leaf parsley

2 tablespoons finely chopped oregano

3/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil

Add the garlic, crushed red pepper, salt and pepper go a bowl, mix well. Let sit for five minutes.

Add the parsley, oregano and cilantro to the garlic mixture and mix well. Add the remaining ingredients and stir together. Let the chimichurri sit for 20-30 minutes before using for cooking. Enjoy!
