Chimichurri Skirt Steak Recipe

The flavors of a good skirt steak mixed with tangy chimichurri make this one (very) savory dish.


For our money, you just can’t beat grilled beef paired with a simple condiment. That means the flavors of a good skirt steak mixed with tangy chimichurri make this one savory dish.


We use chimichurri as a condiment or dipping sauce for this skirt steak recipe. Marinating with chimichurri is delicious, too, but we feel this steak stands on its own. And the side of peppers adds additional color and texture.


We recommend you choose a grass-fed skirt steak to maximize tenderness and flavor. Then, take your time. Enjoy the process of creating (and savoring) this one.
