Chimichurri: A Brazilian Steak Sauce | Fat to Fit Chick

Chimichurri is a zesty blend of parsley, cilantro and jalapenos that is traditionally used as a steak sauce in Brazil.  I first discovered this sauce when I went to a Brazilian steak house, and it’s so tasty!  By the way, if you have never been to a Brazalian steak house, do yourself a favor and GO.  It’s seriously like a Keto mecca.  Anyways,  chimichurri  also has many other uses, it’s absolutely amazing on eggs, any type of meat, and some people will even mix it with mayo or cream cheese as a spread.  This also tastes really delicious mixed with hot veggies. It’s really just a great way to add some zest to any dish, and it’s very easy to make. If you have any other uses for this delicious sauce, let me know! I’m curious to try it in other recipes.

I love steak, but I especially love dousing my steaks in sauces.  Unfortunately, most aren’t keto friendly, (ahem A1 Sauce) so this Chimichurri comes in really handy for you fellow steak douse-ers.  Enjoy!

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 C Red Wine Vinegar
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 3-4 Garlic Cloves
  • 1 Shallot
  • 1 Jalapeno
  • 2 tbsp Oregano
  • 1 Bunch of Cilantro
  • 1 Bunch of Parsley
  • 1 C Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Coarsely chop, garlic, shallot, jalapeno, cilantro, parsley and oregano.  Next, add all ingredients except the olive oil into a food processor.  The reason why I’m having you coarsely chop the ingredients first so so that they blend better. Pulse 5-6 times or until mixture is in small and uniform pieces. Remove from the food processor, and add olive oil and mix well. Store in mason jar or a container of your choosing.

Tip: To make sure chimichurri stays green and vibrant in color, add a thin layer of olive oil on top of the mixture before storing in refrigerator. This will prevent oxidation and loss of color.

Garlic Parmesan Crusted Pork Medallions

Garlic Parmesan Crusted Pork Medallions

Garlic Parmesan Crusted Pork MedallionsIf anyone has gone to a Brazilian steakhouse, they know that they serve a lot more than steak. One of my favorite items that’s often on the

menu is the hunks of pork, covered in garlic and Parmesan.  I’m sure there is an official name for it, but you get the point.  Wanting something like this, we decided to bust out the air fryer and see if we could replicate it.  I think we did a pretty good job, it almost tastes breaded, and it’s low carb, and very easy to make!  Pair it with my Freshly Roasted Tomato Caprese Salad for a delicious combination.

I would love to know what you all think of this recipe.  Do any of you own an airfryer?  It’s so easy to cook with, doesn’t heat up the house unlike my oven, and I’ve been able to cook so much with it!  Stay tuned, air-fryer recipes to come.

Ingredients:

  • 1 Lb Pork Tenderloin
  • 1 Tbsp Garlic chopped
  • 1 Tbsp Italian Seasoning
  • 1/2 c parmesan cheese grated
  • 1 tsp red pepper flakes
    • this is optional

To begin, cut the pork into 1 oz pieces, or chunks.

In a large bowl add coat the tenderloin in garlic, Italian seasoning, and red pepper flakes and let marinate in the fridge for 30 mins.

 

Once time has elapse, evenly coat with Parmesan cheese.

Set your airfryer 350 for and cook for 15 mins.
