Chimichurri Burgers

The weather right now is perfect for hanging out in the yard and grilling.  Once Summer gets into full swing it gets too hot to eat in our unshaded backyard, so we have to take advantage of it while we can.  The ground beef has been piling up in the fridge from the meat CSA so burgers were the obvious choice.   We topped them with manchego cheese and chimichurri sauce and washed it down with the delicious red wine, Doug at Rave never fails to provide us with a perfect pairing!  It was just the right balance with the spiciness of the garlic and herbs.  This sauce would be perfect on a juicy steak or even shrimp.  Give it try, you’ll enjoy it just as much as we did.
