This is a great recipe for Brazilian style skirt steak on skewers. These delicious morsels are great served up with rice and grilled vegetables.


  • 2 pounds skirt steak (cut into 2-inch wide strips)
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup onion (minced)
  • 2 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons flat leaf parsley (finely chopped)
  • 2 tablespoons sea salt
  • 1 tablespoon fresh oregano (minced)
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper

Steps to Make It

  1. Preheat grill for medium-high heat.​ 

  2. Roll skirt steak strips into coils and place about 3 to 4 on large metal skewers.

  3. Place onto grill and cook for 4 to 5 minutes per side.

  4. As the meat starts to cook, combine the remaining ingredients in a small bowl.

  5. When the meat starts browning on the outside, start to baste the steak with the mixture. Keep basting throughout, until the meat is done - an internal temperature between 155 to 165 F.

  6. Remove from the heat and serve with your choice of sides.
