Like the more famous green chimichurri, red chimichurri adds layers of flavor to a perfectly grilled steak.
This is a delicious recipe that can be made with either skirt steak or flat-iron steak. Chimichurri is a green sauce used for grilled meat, originally from South America. It is made of finely-chopped parsley, minced garlic, vegetable oil, oregano, and white vinegar.
Here, we have two variations of it in this grilled churrasco steak recipe. The red counterpart is a bit spicier and smokier. It's a perfect dinner recipe!
