Guys! Guys, guys, guys, guys, guys! UGH! (And gals!) Chimichuri sauce.
Seriously. Seriously. Let’s slow this down for maximum absorption.

You’re like, yeah, so what. And I’m like, CHIMICHURI SAAAAAAAAAAAUCE! Say you get me! Say you really do!
Basically, what all this nonsense boils down to is chimuchuri sauce is CHA-mazing!
It’s awesome on burgers (that’s really what we’re here to talk about today…burgers of the mini varietal), and equally awesome as salad dressing! Chimichuri sauce originates from Argentina and a lot of folks put it on steak, which is bangarang, Rufio; however, I like to use it as salad dressing. Because I eat a lot of salad. And my salad needs itself some dressing.
I had no clue what chimichuri sauce was but I kept seeing pictures of the green beauty on pinterest, so given my love for sauces and all things green, I did a little shoulder shrug and said, “chimichuri sauce? Don’t mind if I do!”
Chimichuri sauce is traditionally made with flat leaf parsley, oregano, olive oil, garlic and vinegar, but there’s a million different renditions of it. Some people add peppers, spices, lime juice, cilantro, white onion, and on and on and on. All I did was blend up all of the ingredients in my Vitamix Blender and my sauce was ready in seconds.
And we put it on BEEF! Beef…I mean…Brief aside: this is the first time I have posted a beef recipe on The Roasted Root. Ever. Not because I’m against it. I just tend to eat about 1,000 times more turkey and salmon than beef. Let’s throw me a big beefy party right now. End aside.
I don’t know why sliders make me giggle, but they do, they really do.
These beef sliders have chimichuri sauce mixed in the meat (glooooory!) plus chimichuri sauce on top (baaaangarang!), plus pepper jack cheese, plus avocado. I except Visa, MasterCard, AMEX, and tasteful compliments, thankyouverymuch. Winky face.
Make your day a chimichuri day.
