Joe LOVES this sauce. It’s a really nice change to your usual sweet and sticky sauces that you usually get with BBQ meat. It’s also sugar free and grain free which is perfect for the Paleo diet, Gluten Free diet, LCHF and others. It was originally featured in The BBQ Issue of The 4 Blades Magazine with a recipe for Argentinian Beef.

Argentinian Beef with Chimichurri Sauce

  • Author: The 4 Blades
  • Total Time: at least 3 hours 15 minutes
  • Yield: 8


Smokey and rich, this recipe for Argentinian beef makes good use of both your BBQ and your thermo mixer. Chimichurri is the name of a flavoursome green sauce from Argentina which is perfect for serving with grilled meat. Commonly beef is prepared only with a salt crust in Argentina, but we have used some of the chimichurri sauce to create a marinade which adds to the flavour of the meat. The meat is commonly served well done, but you can adjust according to your personal preference.

This recipe was also featured on the T4B blog.

Recipe Tester Feedback: “What an amazing combination of flavours! This BBQ’d beef is so moist and tender and could easily be cooked in the oven if you didn’t have access to a barbecue. Hubby loved it and asked for seconds, so I’ll definitely be cooking it again!” – Sharree
