Description

Throughout Latin America, churrasco traditionally refers to steak cooked on a grill. We kept the typical lime and garlic marinade but seared the meat on the stovetop to make the recipe weeknight-friendly. A big spoonful of the zesty fresh herb-chili sauce called chimichurri adds loads of flavor. The recipe is a Yummly original created by Ericka Sanchez.

    Very good! I used left over chimichurri sauce on chicken.

    The chimichurri sauce seemed watery and weak. I looked up other recipes and saw that they recommended to place the ingredients into a blender and pulse several times to thicken the sauce. I think I'll do that next time, plus maybe add some cumin to boost the depth of flavor.
