Aleppo Pepper Chimichurri

Aleppo Pepper Chimichurri is a variation we created on Argentina’s national sauce for grilled meats, poultry, fish and vegetables.  Sweet Aleppo peppers, with a taste reminiscent of both sweet red pepper and tomato with just a hint of heat, are wonderful, either grilled or incorporated into sauces. Try some Aleppo Pepper Chimichurri on Grilled Flat Iron Steak.

We prefer using a hand blender or even a traditional blender to a food processor when preparing Aleppo Pepper Chimichurri; it gives you more control over the consistency and a hand blender is far easier to clean than either of the other two devices.  To store leftover Aleppo Pepper Chimichurri, place in a glass container (we use a bistro glass), cover with an air-tight lid and refrigerate.  Aleppo Pepper Chimichurri will keep refrigerated for up to a month but the flavor will decrease significantly after 10 days.
