A note about serious food allergies

Chimichurri might seem like a Mary Poppins word to you, but in Argentina it translates to ketchup. Not literally; this isn't a sweet tomato condiment that gets annoyingly stuck in the bottle. We mean Argentinians put chimichurri on everything, up to and including their tea and biscuits… probably. And why not? We find the slightly spicy, totally earthy sauce perfect on rice bowls, chicken, and now this succulent pork tenderloin. A few bites of this magic green (and it goes great with the squash side, too) and you'll be declaring yourself Argentinian. (Don't cry for you.)
