This time of the year, there’s nothing better than grilling with a beer in your hand!
The best recipes are the easiest ones, so they don’t distract from playing lawn games, enjoying company, and of course, sipping that beer. That’s what makes chimichurri such an awesome sauce. You can whip it up in a food processor in no time flat, and I usually have enough herbs lying around to make it without going to the store.
This sauce tastes great on anything, from empanadas to pizza, but the best use for it – and its original use by the cowboys down in Argentina – is for slathering on grilled meat.

might just be my summertime staple this year.
Seriously, pop everything in the food processor and call it a day. Don’t feel tied to these herbs either, whatever you have is fine, as long as there are at least 3 different herbs in the mix and there is more parsley than anything else.
A quick teriyaki marinade on these guys is all you need.
Meanwhile, cook some rice, and lay some of that chimichurri right in there.
Here’s the meat getting nicely caramelized.
I had some really nice shrimp, so I just cooked them with the shell still on.
The perfect meal for this time of the year! Dan Whalen doesn't like when recipes get in the way of beer drinking. He has been blogging for over 4 years at The Food in My Beard; check Dan's Tablespoon profile often to try his recipes with creative international spins!
