In Argentina, where grilled beef (“asado”) is an art form, chimichurri is an essential condiment—meats, like this Grilled Tri-Tip, are never served without it. Here, it’s a bright-green, pesto-like sauce containing herbs, garlic, and tangy vinegar (note that, while fresh oregano adds an earthy punch, dried is an acceptable substitute). If you can, make the chimichurri a day before serving to give the flavors time to meld.

When you think Argentinian cuisine, you can't help but think of grilled beef with a delicious chimichurri sauce paired with the perfect Argentine wine, a bright, red Malbec. We absolutely love this exciting chimichurri sauce on grilled tri-tip paired with the 2013 C'est Bon Malbec for a mouth-watering delight that will make you feel immediately transported to Buenos Aires. Buen provecho!Shop on Glassful ›
