C is for – Chimi

DSC06553

 

Ah the Chimi!  Known also as the chimichurri burger, or Dominican burger, is a feast for the tastebuds.  They come in two forms, as a specially seasoned ground burger patty, or from “pierna” carved off meat from a pre-cooked leg of pork.  Chimi’s come cooked in various ways.  Some (the more boring ones) are cooked on a grill as a hamburger, though many love them cooked as such.  But the very best are cooked on a grill over “carbon”  with grilled cabbage, onions and tomatoes, followed mid-way through cooking with a salsa of their secret recipe.  If you are very lucky, the bun is toasted.

Hats off and a toast to the culinary expertise of the creators of the best damn sandwich around!

Do yourselves a favour, and when in DR, search yourselves out the chimi truck with the best reputation for your area, or, out of DR … GOOGLE is your best friend.  Try out a new recipe today!

 

Listen to the palms…
