Steak gets a flavor kick from chimichurri. This piquant all-purpose herb sauce is so versatile, it complements most any grilled meat, poultry or fish. —Laureen Pittman, Riverside, California

I loved this sauce!

Very tasty, especially if you like a little spice. I would recommend cutting down the Chimichurri though. It makes way more than you'll need.

Tried this out over the weekend...it was very good. Yes, there is alot of garlic...you could cut back a little if you don't want it as spicy. The sauce is delicious. I served the steak with a zucchini-cilantro salad & jalapeno potato gratin...a very elegant tasting 'latin inspired' meal!
