Over the course of this year’s tournament I’ve challenged myself to make a meal from each of the competing nations, but now I have a challenge for you, World Cup Dinners fans- a CHIMICHURRI CHALLENGE!

For the Final on Sunday I’ll be having Argentinian style steak with the traditional herby Chimichurri sauce, and this time I’m asking you to join me for dinner by making the same meal! I’ve posted the recipe ahead so you can buy all the ingredients, just in time for your own Argentinian footballing feast!

Anyone who makes the meal, and sends a photo of their efforts, by twitter, facebook or email to, will then have the chance to win a very special ‘World Cup Dinners’ prize!

I’ll post a selection of the best efforts on the blog too!

Choose your own steak (I’ll probably go for a nice fat fillet) and whip up a batch of chimichurri sauce as follows:

INGREDIENTS (makes enough for 2 steaks)
1 cup fresh parsley
1/4 cup fresh coriander
1/2 cup olive oil
1 tbsp red wine vinegar
2 garlic cloves crushed
Large pinch chilli powder flakes
1/2 tsp ground cumin
Plenty of salt and pepper to taste

Blend all ingredients in a food processor, and then leave to settle for a couple of hours then drizzle over your steak!
