What is a chimichurri? Here’s some information from Wikipedia:

Chimichurri (Spanish pronunciation: [tʃimiˈtʃuri]) or Chimmichurri is a sauce used for grilled meat. It is originally from Argentina but is also used in Uruguay and in countries as far north as Nicaragua, Colombia and Mexico.

Etymology
The origin of the name of the sauce is unclear.
The word chimichurri or chirriburri is attested in 1783 as a person’s nickname, but not connected to a sauce.
There are various stories explaining the name as a corruption of English words, most commonly the name ‘Jimmy Curry’ or ‘Jimmy McCurry’.
The Argentine gourmet Miguel Brascó claims that the word chimichurri originated when the British were captured after the British invasions of the Río de la Plata. The prisoners asked for condiment for their food mixing English, aboriginal and Spanish words. According to this story, che-mi-curry stands for “che mi salsa” (give me condiment) or “give me curry”. The word then corrupted to chimichurri.
Another theory for the name of the sauce comes from the Basque settlers that arrived in Argentina as early as the 19th century. According to this theory, the name of the sauce comes from the Basque term tximitxurry, loosely translated as “a mixture of several things in no particular order”.

Preparation
Chimichurri is made from finely chopped parsley, minced garlic, olive oil, oregano, white or red vinegar, and red pepper flakes. Additional flavorings such as paprika (pimenton dulce), cumin, thyme, lemon, and bay leaf (laurel), and in the red version, tomato and red bell pepper may also be added. It can also be used as a marinade for grilled meat. Chimichurri is available bottled or dehydrated for preparing with oil and water.
