During the summer months there is one thing that I crave intensely when I purchase fresh Colorado grass fed Buffalo meat, Chimichurri sauce. This delicious sauce hails from the beautiful South American country of Argentina. Versatile and healthy, this sauce can be used on anything from grilled meats, to fish, chicken, chorizo, grilled vegetables, and empanadas. There are many different versions of this recipe, which allows the cook or chef to make their sauce very unique and individualized. This sauce is the staple of condiments in the Argentinian household and can be compared to the American condiment of choice, ketchup, in popularity. When it came to pairing a specific strain with this recipe, I decided on a more spontaneous approach.
Seantron, is a professional extract artist and friend, who works out of Boulder, Colorado. Whether I need solventless hash, kief, or properly purged BHO extracts, this is the guy I trust as he uses all of the latest technology. I arrived at his house one evening with my fiancée, two dogs, and cooler full of mise en place for this specific dish. We were having a private dinner party where I cooked for all of the guests and he supplied me with a strain of my flavor profile preference. After requesting lemon and citrus flavor profiles and preferably a strain by Subcool, Seantron picked Time Wreck. A genotype to be reckoned with, it is the beautiful work of art by TGA Subcool Seeds, crossing Hybrid Blood Wreck x Vortex. Hungry yet?
This hard hitting strain has some of the most delicious terpenes I have ever tasted, creating a citrus fruit taste with undertones of lime and lemon dusted with sandalwood. At 70% sativa, this tasty strain comes on fast and strong with superb cerebral and pain relief effects. Serious anti-inflammatory and stress reducing properties are two additional effects that will have your body thanking you. Food is not only a basic need but also medicine in itself. Healthy eating heals your body just as much as cannabis does. When cannabis is paired with a healthy dish such as lean Buffalo meat and an incredibly wholesome sauce, this double whammy of medicine will have you waking up the next day feeling like a new person. In reality, food is a form of art, and it is the only form of art that can be enjoyed with all five senses. Take this recipe, practice your plating skills, and let your senses revel in the rewards of your labor.
