If you are talking to a Dominican and the word “Chimichurri” comes up don’t get confused with the Argentinean parsley-garlic sauce, which by the way I love in my red meats.
Chimichurri for us is a Dominican hamburger served with a tangy mayonnaise-ketchup sauce and plenty of shredded cabbage, tomato, and onion on a soft, pillow roll.
I remember when my mother used to order Chimichurris as a treat on Sundays to all the kids back home and how excited we were back in the 80s. This recipe reminds me those old good days and I wanted to change it a bit by adding fresh chives to the wonderful sandwich.
2 Lbs ground meat
3 Tbs “Mi Sofrito“
2 Tbs Onion power
1. I have 6 balls for my entire family. I separate them to make sure I have even burgers
2. Heat a large griddle medium high with oil
3. Cook for 5 minutes on each side
