The Nyama Choma Sauce to Serve at your next Barbeque

The perfect Chimichurri sauce recipe goes well on grilled meats – a definite yes on some succulent nyam chom.

It is a tangy brightly colored sauce with herbs, garlic, and vinegar. In Argentina, they always serve meat with a side of chimichurri.  This sauce must be prepared at least an hour before serving.
