Chimichurri is one of my favorite marinades for meat, fish and even vegetables.  I’ve used it on filet mignon roast, lamb chops, pork tenderloin, shrimp and even for grilled portobello mushrooms.  I have a favorite local brand that I have been using for many years, but recently decided that I would try and replicate the flavors.  This is my version of a chimichurri marinade, you can adjust the flavors to your liking.  

When ready to use  take a few tablespoons of the chimichurri and mix it with white wine, more vinegar or even a liquor of choice. I do prefer to marinade overnight.   This recipe yields about 16 oz.  I  place them into small mason jars and store  the fridge.  You could also store it a plastic container or plastic zip bag. I haven’t placed this chimichurri in the freezer but would imagine if stored properly, it should work out fine.

Here’s the quick recipe:
