Good Eats!

     This evening after work, I picked up some cold deli baby back ribs from the corner grocer, plannning to heat 'em up and add some kind of sauce to dip them in  -- but what kind?  The usual barbecue would be too heavy for this heat....

     Looking at the various condiments and suchlike and after reading the ingredients, I decided to try chimichurri, which is what gauchos slather on grilled meat.  (Or so they say.  If you'd rather think of it as the Argentine answer to A-1 or Worcestershire sauce, you wouldn't be wrong.)

     Oh, wow, does that ever work!  Blended very nicely with the smokey ribs and went well with the big salad.  Tam liked it, too.  It's worth trying if you never have.

Your title made me miss Alton Brown again. Great cooking show.

Thanks for the recommendation.

You could always make some tzatziki.

In summer, you might want mint and chives.

Recipes on the internet in case you don't get lucky and know an old Greek chef who can give you hers (and it WILL be a her-mine was named Heleni)

John, that's brilliant! I'll have to try it next time.

Matthew: I hear very good hings about Alton Brown.
