Chimichurri is an excellent way to make use of a lot of a lot of kinds of herbs. This super umami sauce is simple to prepare, and so versatile! Add it to any protein - it’s especially great on a grilled steak or baked flaky white fish, or drizzle onto soups. Or, simply rip off a hunk of crusty bread and dunk it for a simple but very satisfying snack.
Combine vinegar, 1 tsp. salt, garlic, shallot, and chile in a medium bowl and let stand for 10 minutes. Stir in cilantro, parsley, and oregano. Using a fork, whisk in oil. Remove 1/2 cup chimichurri to a small bowl, season with salt to taste, and reserve as sauce. Put meat in a glass, stainless-steel, or ceramic dish. Toss with remaining marinade. Cover and chill for at least 3 hours or overnight.
Remove meat from marinade, pat dry, and grill.
Spoon reserved sauce over grilled meat.
