  • Speaking of chimichurri...

    It is a condiment, sauce, or whatever you want to call it. Indispensable for an asado, added to the meat, or to a choripan (a chorizo in between two slices of delicious Argentine bread). It is made with garlic, parsley, oil, vinegar, orégano, ají molido and some secret ingredients which I am not sure I want to divulge.

    It seems that during the British Invasion of Buenos Aires in 1806, the captured British prisoners asked for a sauce to go with their meat, saying something like "give me curry", which to the prison guards, sounded a lot like chimichurri. Really?

    It is also said to be named after a handsome and courageous Irishman Jimmy Mc Curry, who fought alongside the Argentines in the revolutionary wars and taught the gauchos how to make this recipe. Now, that's a story I can swallow, being Irish myself.

    Hablando de chimichurri.

    Es un condimento, salsa, o lo que lo quieras llamar. Indispensable en un asado, con carne, o con un choripan (un chorizo entre dos pedazos del delicioso pan de Buenos Aires). Se hace con ajo, perejil, vinagre, aceite, orégano y algunos ingredientes secretos que no sé si quiero divulgar.

    Parece ser que durante las invasiones Inglesas de 1806, los prisioneros ingleses pedían una salsa para las comidas, diciendo, "give me curry", cosa que para los vigilantes sonaba como "chimicurri". ¿De veras?

    También se dice que un buenmozo y valiente irlandés que se llamaba Jimmy Mc Curry, quién peleaba lado a lado con los argentinos durante la revolución, les enseñó a los gauchos a hacer el chimichurri. Siendo de origen irlandés, este cuento me gusta más.
