Little Toasts with Braised Beef and Chimichurri Sauce

For the chimichurri sauce: You can either serve immediately or refrigerate it; will keep for a couple days. If refrigerated, you will need to let sit for at least 30 minutes in order to return to room temp before serving. This recipe should give you enough chimichurri sauce for 15-20 little toasts.
