Florida is a melting pot of different cultures. At the gym by my house at any given moment I can hear conversations going on around me in at least three different languages. I thought I had rhythm but the ONE time I tried Zumba my Latin friends put me to shame! I love the diversity and flavor in everything around us from the architecture to…my favorite, the food.
My friends made the most amazing flank steak with Chimichurri sauce when I was at her house for dinner. She’s from Argentina and she said that Chimichurri sauce is often referred to as the ketchup of Argentina. It’s a bright, clean sauce made from parsley, vinegar, garlic, and olive oil. I wish they sold Chimichurri sauce in bulk at Costco.
Traditionally Chimichurri has a ton of olive oil in it but since we’re trying to eat healthier this week I searched for a lightened up version and found this. This Chimichurri sauce gets some extra bite with some horseradish added in which my husband loves with any type of beef. I doubled the Chimichurri sauce because there wasn’t enough to even process in my food processor or blender in the original recipe. With double the sauce this dish is still only 269 calories!
