Ideas for Dry Chimichurri Rub

Accidental Locavore Lamb With RubIf you’re wondering what to do with the dry chimichurri rub, here are a few ideas:

  •       Rub all over tri-tip before roasting
  •       Sprinkle over halibut fillets before pan-searing
  •       Make a marinade for roast chicken by whisking 1/4 cup rub with 1/2 cup olive oil and 3 tablespoons red wine vinegar.
  •       Toss chunks of potatoes in olive oil, sprinkle with the rub and roast at 450°
  •       Add to your favorite vinaigrette and give your salad a kick!
  •       Toss with vegetables before steaming or roasting
  •       Sprinkle a teaspoon in rice when cooking it.
  •       Go classic, and rub into a steak before grilling

The Accidental Locavore used it on a rack of lamb. I let it marinate for a couple of hours, seared it off in my cast iron skillet and finished it in a 375° oven until it was medium-rare (about 15 minutes). I sprinkled the finished rack with lemon and some Maldon salt-it was delicious!

We’d love to hear what you did with it. Let us know in the comments below. Happy Holidays to All!

Wow, just wow. I took a flounder fillet, sprinkled the chimichuri rub on it, added a little olive oil and sous vided the thing. It doesn’t get much better than this. Thanks Anne.
