THE RECIPE

Brazilian Grilled Flank Steak

From your grill to Brazil

As the summer starts to wind down, we’re all looking for ways to get the most out of our grill. With this recipe, you can take a trip to Brazil from the comfort of your own backyard. Brazilian cuisine is known for its plethora of expertly-grilled meats (namely beef) served with the ubiquitous condiment known as chimichurri. In this simple yet boldly flavored recipe, Pamela first mixes up her version of chimichurri using garlic, cilantro, lime juice, and green chile. She ingeniously reserves half for serving and uses the rest to marinate the steak overnight to infuse it with flavor as it tenderizes. After a quick flash on the grill the next day, the steak is thinly sliced (across the grain of course) and served with the reserved chimichurri, complementing the rich meat with a sharp, tangy, and spicy bite. Serve this with rice and beans tonight then save the leftovers for a salad, wrap, or even Brazilian “tacos” the next day.

    The best is to use flank steak for jerky

    Use Flank steak for everything…fajitas, wraps, steak sandwiches. It is a very lean, flavorful cut of meat. Not cheap though..not sure where they got that idea. Body builders eat it a lot as a source of protein because what little fat it does have, is finely marbled throughout, giving it superb flavor. I usually marinate it in Worcestershire, garlic, and cracked black pepper. My fave cut!
