Last Friday of the Month Recipe: Churrasco with Chimichurri sauce recipe. It's simple, but delish!

This recipe from Sophia Knightly ties in very well with her Grill Me Baby book.  Who wouldn't love a chef like Chef Paolo, a man who will romance you and cook like a dream too?

  • 4 skirt steaks, trimmed
  • Sea salt
  • Fresh ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

Brush with olive oil and rub salt and pepper all over steaks. Grill to your preference. Serve with Chimichurri sauce. 
Chimichurri Sauce Recipe:
  • 1 cup fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves
  • 3-4 garlic cloves
  • 2 Tbsps. fresh oregano leaves or 2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp red or white wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
Finely chop the parsley, fresh oregano, and garlic (or process in a food processor several pulses). Place in a small bowl and stir in the olive oil, vinegar, salt, pepper and red pepper flakes.  Adjust seasonings to taste.

Serve immediately or refrigerate it. If chilled, return to room temperature before serving. Will keep for 3-5 days refrigerated.

Sophia likes to serve it with a salad of tomatoes, red onion and avocado in a vinaigrette dressing, and also oven roasted potatoes drizzled in olive oil and sprinkled with sea salt, pepper and herbs de Provence.
