Chimichurri is the star of this flavorful dish. Accompanied with seasonal vegetable favorites like spiced pumpkin and potatoes. Chimichurri the traditionally Argentianian condiment doubles not only as a sauce but marinade. It goes with so much more than meat, and can be found in many Latin households on the side or on top of dishes. I hope you will enjoy this new seasonal favorite for my family with an old classic, Chimichurri as much we have.
