Skirt Steak with Chimichurri Verde
Marinade & Grilling:
⅔ cup olive oil
½ cup fresh orange juice
⅓ cup fresh lime juice
¼ cup reduced sodium soy sauce (or tamari sauce for gluten free)
¼ cup Worcestershire sauce
3 Tbsp. red wine vinegar
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 lb. skirt steak, trimmed
Salt & pepper, to taste
1 cup fresh parsley
1 cup fresh cilantro
½ cup olive oil
½ medium onion, diced
3 garlic cloves
3 Tbsp. fresh lime juice
2 Tbsp. red wine vinegar
½ tsp. salt
½ tsp. pepper
¼ tsp. red pepper flakes
- Whisk marinade ingredients (through garlic) together and place into a large zip lock bag. Add skirt steak to bag and allow to marinate overnight.
- When ready to grill, season steak liberally with salt and pepper. Grill 3–4 minutes per side to achieve medium-rare doneness. Let steak rest on cutting board for 10 minutes before slicing.
- Meanwhile, add chimichurri sauce ingredients to a food processor. Blend until a smooth sauce is formed. Spoon chimichurri sauce over sliced skirt steak and enjoy.
