If you do not want to make your own chimichurri, you should be able to purchase some already made. But nothing beat fresh. Also make please make sure the meat you purchase is from a well known source. I can't stress enough the importance of grass-fed meats. They are leaner, usually ethically treated and a lot healthier (more vitamins, minerals, and no hormones). Antibiotics are not a part of this recipes. Make sure when you eat, you are being conscience of what you eat and are eating the best. You deserve to eat only the highest quality of foods!
Chimichurri Marinated Skirt Steak
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Prep Time: 4-8 hours
- 1 lb of grass fed skirt steak
- 1 1/2 tbsp of chimichurri (self made or store bought)
- salt and pepper to taste
In a glass bowl or some type of container, combine the skirt steak and the chimichurri until the meat is well coated. Cover the glass bowl and place in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours or overnight if you'd like. Turn at least once.
Once marinated - Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Transfer the meat from the bowl onto the hot skillet (salt and pepper both sides if you'd like) . Don't worry about shaking off the excess marinade.
Let the meat cook for about 7 minutes or until the one side is browned. Turn over and repeat with the other side. If you prefer a more well done steak, you may cook it longer. This amount of time should give you a slight pink center and crusty outside.
