Cilantro Chimichurri Sauce

This sauce is quick and so flavorful! It’s perfect for steak. It combines 2 of our favorite ingredients…cilantro and garlic! It pains me when I learn that someone doesn’t have the taste buds for cilantro. Did you know that for some people cilantro can taste like soap? Ahh so sad. Anyhow, if you don’t taste soap when you eat cilantro then give this recipe a try the next time you grill up some steak!

Cilantro Chimichurri Sauce

Serving Size: 4


  • 1 bunch cilantro (thin stems are ok, but toss out the thicker ones)
  • Juice from ½ lime
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 2 Tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • Pinch of red pepper flakes
  • 2 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil


  1. Put all ingredients except for the olive oil into a food processor and pulse until everything gets chopped up into small, even pieces.
  2. Scoop mixture into a bowl and add olive oil. Mix with a spoon. If necessary add more salt and stir.
