PrintEmail This sauce originated in the South American pampas where it was used to flavor beef. I love it spooned on just about anything, including Moros Y Cristianos (recipe given), rice, pasta, grilled vegetables or tofu. If I am in the mood for extra tartness, I add a spoonful of capers to this recipe.
