Ingredients

  • For the Argentinian-style churrasco skewers
  • 2 lb. skirt steak or flank steak, cut against the grain into 12 strips about 2 inches wide and 6 inches long
  • 1 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 6 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • Juice of 2 limes
  • Juice of 2 lemons
  • Juice of one orange
  • 2 tsp. hot smoked paprika (smoked pimenton de la vera, if available)
  • 2 tsp. ground cumin
  • 12 bamboo skewers, soaked 2 hours
  • Neutral oil like canola for oiling grill grates
  • Cherry tomatoes, diced squash, and diced eggplant, if desired
  • Chimichurri sauce
  • For the chimichurri sauce
  • 1 cup lightly packed fresh parsley, finely chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 2 Tbsp. finely chopped shallot
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp. crushed red pepper
  • 3 Tbsp. sherry vinegar
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 tsp. Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 tsp. honey
  • 3/4 cup fruity extra virgin olive oil

Instructions

  • To make Chimichurri Sauce, in a medium bowl whisk together all ingredients except oil. Allow to sit for 5 minutes.
  • Slowly whisk in oil until sauce is slightly emulsified. Season with additional salt, if needed.
  • To make Argentinian-Style Churrasco Skewers, in a shallow dish lay out strips of beef and season with salt and pepper. In a small bowl mix together olive oil, garlic, juices, paprika, and cumin; pour over beef strips. Cover and marinate in the refrigerator for about 2 hours.
  • Thread each beef strip lengthwise onto a skewer. If desired, add vegetables on the skewer as well. Allow to sit at room temperature for 30 minutes.
  • Preheat the grill to high. Generously oil clean grill grates with a paper towel dipped in canola oil and held with tongs.
  • Grill 4 to 5 minutes on each side (if using flank steak, which is leaner and can dry out more easily, check for desired doneness after 3 minutes on each side).
  • Remove from grill and let it rest for 5 minutes. Serve with Chimichurri Sauce.
