Serve up a thick, Latin American-style steak to your hungry gang. Churrasco Steak is one recipe you'll be coming back to again and again!

What You'll Need

  • 1 bunch fresh parsley, chopped (about 1 cup)
  • 2 cups olive oil
  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
  • 6 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 to 2-1/2 pounds beef skirt steak

What to Do

  1. In a blender or food processor, combine all ingredients except steak; pulse until smooth. Reserve 1/2 cup of marinade; cover and set aside until serving time.
  2. Place steak in a shallow dish and pour remaining marinade over top. Cover and marinate in the refrigerator at least 2 hours or overnight.
  3. Remove steak from marinade, discarding excess marinade, and place steak in a grill pan over medium-high heat, Cook 3 to 4 minutes per side for medium doneness, or to desired doneness beyond that. 
  4. Stir the reserved marinade. Drizzle over steak and serve immediately.


There are many variations of this dish, including using vinegar instead of lime juice, and adding chopped onions, a bit of coconut milk, or hot sauce to the marinade. After you try it as above once or a few times, you just may want to get adventurous with some of these (or your own) options.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

love this recipe! been making it for years. i use fresh cilantro too. so good. always requested when i bbq steak. also i use it on sirloin, porterhouse, and ribeyes great on all of them

At the price of beef tenderloin i sure wouldn't be coming back to this recipe again and again! But, I'm sure this would be delicious made with other cuts of beef. The marinatiing will tenderise those that need it.
