The origins of Chimichurri:

Chimichurri sauce is, as we know it today, the traditional steak sauce of Argentina, concocted and consumed by the Gauchos of the Pampas region.  Its origins are unknown. Among the many folk stories, they say that the name comes from a Basque word "tximitxurri" which loosely translates to "a mixture of several things in no particular order."

Some of the other stories claim that one some English man named James Curry invented it and the name of the sauce took his name after some butchering by the locals.

Other people claim that the locals of the viceroyalty of la Plata (Former colony of Spain) were introduce to Indian curry and when they couldn't fully pronounce "Give me Curry" it morphed into "Gimme Curry" to eventually land on "Chimichurri". Interestingly enough, chimichurri and curry are very different. 

In conclusion, nobody really knows where it comes from. There are theories and claims, but no one has been able to truly establish its origin.
