Chimichurri Sauce

An easy sauce to accompany red meat – stores well over night in the fridge

~ 1 large bunch flat leaf parsley (half chopped finely – the other half for blending)
~ 1/2 cup olive oil
~ 2 tbsp white wine vinegar
~ juice of 1/2 a lemon
~ 1/2 tsp crushed garlic
~ pinch of dried chili flakes
~ pinch of dried oregano
~ bottom 1/3 of a green jalapeno (deseeded)
~ large pinch of salt

Blend all of the above ingredients (except half the bunch of parsley finely chopped) in a small blender/smoothie maker – loosen with more olive oil if the mixture gets too thick
Place into a bowl and add the rest of the parsley, finely chopped
Season to taste with salt, pepper and lemon juice

Serve with red meat such as beef brisket or lamb shoulder
