Grilled Skirt Steak with Chimichurri Sauce

In Argentina, "asados," or grilled meats, are often enjoyed with a fresh tasting, flavor-packed sauce called chimichurri. It’s a classic for good reason! Made with freshly chopped herbs, fruity GOYA® Extra-Virgin Olive Oil and a dash of lemon and vinegar, this tart, vibrant topping turns plain grilled poultry, meat and seafood into something super special. 

This churrasco con chimichurri recipe pairs chimichurri with tender, grilled skirt steak. Serve the sauce on the side as you’d find it in Argentina, in a small bowl or jar.
