A staple of Argentine cuisine that's commonly served alongside freshly grilled steaks, chimichurri is perhaps best described as the Argentine equivalent to Italian pesto (though its flavor is decidedly different). The origins of the name chimichurri are of much dispute. The word might be the result of a simple mispronunciation of an Irishman's name. It could also have come from a faulty pronunciation of a Basque word roughly meaning "a mixture of several things in no particular order". What we do know about chimichurri is that it's made with finely chopped parsley, cilantro, basil, oregano, garlic, cumin, red wine vinegar, olive oil, and chilies. We also know that it enhances the flavor of any good steak.
And that brings us to Trader Joe's Herb & Garlic Seasoned Sirloin Steak with Chimichurri Sauce. This is a tender piece of sirloin that's marinated in garlic and a blend of herbs including cilantro, parsley, and basil. The Chimichurri Sauce comes in a separate packet, so when the meat is fully cooked (we recommend searing them over very high heat on your grill), you can slice it and top with a dollop of this fragrant, flavorful condiment. Imagine yourself a gaucho, riding the pampas on your trusty caballo… and then stopping to eat a big juicy steak. You'd want Chimichurri. It's much simpler to stop by your neighborhood Trader Joe's - we have Sirloin Steak with Chimichurri Sauce, and so much more!
