Marinade, Classic Chimichurri


This classic Argentian sauce/marinade for grilled meats may be used for chicken as well. It is said to be invented by an Irishman who was fighting for the Argentine army in Argentina's war for independence. The man's name was McCurry but it was too difficult for the Inca soldiers to pronounce, thus it spread as chimichurri and remains to this day.
