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.
“ Delicious food doesn't have to be hard or expensive to make. ”
Pamela is the creative voice and food blogger behind My Man’s Belly where she believes that ” the best way to a man’s heart (or anyone’s heart for that matter) is still through their stomach.” We agree! Her recipes are everything we want – comforting, handmade, and unique – but her voice is what puts it all over the top. Witty and absolutely hilarious, Pamela draws us in to the stories and inspiration behind her food with her snarky humor, even including a bit of relationship advice at the end of every recipe. Great recipes AND relationship advice? We’re in.
