We made this today to the T and enjoyed it. We grilled the skirt steak for five minutes on each side, resulting in a medium steak. I thought the chimichurri sauce tasted a tad too strong of vinegar, but my husband disagreed and said he wouldn't change a thing. Bottomline: if you are not a fan of a strong vinegar taste, you should reduce the vinegar to a third or quarter cup. Thanks for sharing!

We really enjoyed this! I didn't have any skirt steak on hand, so I used some hanger steak that I had in the fridge (I cut it into chunks before grilling it). I served this with pinto beans, Mexican rice and some leftover pico de gallo that I needed to use up, which made a nice filling meal. The chimichurri sauce complemented the grilled meat perfectly, too. Thanks for posting!
