This is a great recipe for Brazilian-style skirt steak on skewers. Churrasco is a very popular food in South America and is the traditional Brazilian way to barbecue. And no wonder it's a favorite, as these strips of steak are sliced thin, and then grilled to absolute perfection. Tender, juicy steak that's dressed in a chimichurri sauce, consisting of olive oil, onion, garlic, red wine vinegar, with a touch of spices and herbs. Just delightful!
Churrasco is made from skirt steak, which comes from the section of the cow known as the beef plate primal cut. A very tasty cut of beef, yet it is known to be a tougher cut, as it has a lot of connective tissue.
This recipe only takes a mere 30 minutes, from start to finish, so you can place it quickly on the table for eating, whether it be a weeknight or weekend meal. These delicious morsels are great served up with rice and grilled vegetables.
