Chimichurri is a mixture of finely chopped parsley, oregano, ground chili and garlic mixed with vinegar and vegetable oil.

Martina Ezcurra sprinkled coarse salt on a large piece of meat and then massaged it with her hands.

With a smile, she told me that although the men claim to be the steakhouses, it is the Argentine women who prepare the best meat.

Next to the seasoned steak, on the marble kitchen table was a bowl full of the chimichurri that I had prepared that morning.

It is a mixture of finely chopped parsley, oregano, ground chili and minced garlic mixed with vinegar and vegetable oil.
