I don’t know about you, but I often get bored with my weeknight cooking routine. I try to keep things simple and easy—grilled steaks, cast-iron pork chops, roasted chicken, or a huge batch of sheet pan vegetables—but after making them a few times, I need to switch things up a bit. These meals need something simple to spice things up and make life exciting again. Luckily, we have a few sauce recipes that do just the trick! They’re a sure-fire way to spruce up dinner without adding much extra time to your night.
We love this super fresh recipe for the famous South American condiment. Fresh cilantro and parsley give this sauce a herbaceous backbone, while red pepper flakes and raw garlic give it some spice and pungency. Finish it off with acidic lime juice and vinegar and you have yourself a winner! Chimichurri is the perfect way to complete grilled steak or chicken.
