Argentine Chimichurri

Delectable Chimichurri

Oh, how I learned to love a steak while honeymooning in Argentina.
Chimichurri, you are the secret.
So delicious.
And delightful.
You have brought me to the land of grilled meats.
And my grill-master husband thanks you.
Forever, and beyond.

Head of garlic (~ 10 cloves)
1/2 medium or whole small onion, chopped
1/3 cup roughly chopped red bell pepper
1/2 bunch parsley, leaves and tender stems only, roughly chopped
1 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp dried thyme
1 large bay leaf, crumbled
1/2 tsp sweet paprika
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground pepper

Valreas Cuvee Prestige Cotes du Rhone

Yes

A great, cheap Cotes du Rhone with a lavish mouthfeel. Strong tannins and black pepper, really needs a food pairing. Opens up well.

Red Wine-Braised Short Ribs

Beef Short Ribs

We merged a Bon Appetit recipe with a (strikingly) similar recipe from my canning book (which recommends topping the finished product with pickled red onions) and sprinkled it with input from Tom Colicchio.

Makes about 4 servings.
