In many South American countries, chimichurri is as common as ketchup is in America. The condiment is used to marinate meat before cooking, to baste meat while cooking, or to serve on top after cooking. The fresh and zingy flavor goes well with a variety of cuts of meat, like ribeye, T-bone, or New York strip. It is also delicious with poultry, fish, tempeh, or tofu. The silky, beautiful flavor of chimichurri guarantees deliciousness no matter what type of protein it is served with, and it’s so easy to make at home!
This weeknight-friendly dish takes advantage of the Korean chili sauce gochujang, a sweet and spicy sauce that livens up anything it touches. If you like it extra spicy, go for the full amount of sriracha. The roasted bok choy is just tender, with some of the leaves remaining a little crunchy, for an addictive veggie side.
I made this recipe entirely from produce and products I found at Natural Grocers! In case you didn’t know, right now watermelon, carrots, celery, cucumber, garlic, radishes and fresh herbs are all in season! That means its time to load up on any and all produce to make huge fruit and veggie salads! Then all you need is a little dressing to go on top. This time around, I created a Thai-style dressing to go on top, since I’ve been craving Asian flavors lately!
