Hey, y’all!

Yesterday I gave y’all the winning recipe of the 2019 Kentucky Derby Burger Competition: The Chimichurri Churchill Burger.

Upon making this burger, I had to question myself — why have I never made chimichurri in the kitchen before? I’ve had it at restaurants, sure; however, it’s simple, delicious, and immensely versatile.

An uncooked sauce used for grilled meats, chimichurri has roots in both Argentina and Uruguay. Upon tasting, you’ll predominantly get notes of parsley and garlic; both pair beautifully with a variety of dishes. It’s amazing on grilled steak, lamb chops, burgers, shrimp, salmon — you name it.


Ready to make it? It only takes a few minutes!

Homemade Chimichurri


  • 4 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 bunch of parsley
  • 1/3 c olive oil
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 3 tbsp red wine vinegar


  • Combine all ingredients in a food processor (or a blender) until well-combined.
  • Best if made in advance!

It’s about to be grilling season, y’all – and I’m certain that this will be an accompaniment to many of my future meals!

From my kitchen to yours, enjoy!

As always: Happy Eating, Happy Traveling, Happy Living!

Y’all come back now, ya hear?

My best,
