Reviews for Steak with Chipotle-Lime Chimichurri
Sort By :
"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!"
"Can never have tooooo much garlic..can't wait to try this!"
"Really good but wayyyy to much garlic as well as peppers. I am going to try cut both in half next time"
