    Manami's Note:

    "Churrasco means different things in different parts of Latin America: a particular cut of beef in Argentina, a general term for barbecue in Brazil and a flat tenderloin in Nicaragua." Here the steak is cut in the Nicaraguan style, seasoned with Salvadorian spices, and accented with a Chilean sauce called Pebre. Pebre is served as a meat or chicken accompaniment and it's also delicious atop grilled tomatoes. A lovely bright-green color, Pebre has a fresh garden taste with none of the sweet overtones of many hot sauces. Be warned that this is no regular steak sauce, but rather an equivalent to the hot mustard sauce served in Japanese restaurants. I have posted the Pebre without Habanero chiles but feel free to add them when preparing the sauce. Courtesy of Healthy Latin Cooking by Stephen Raichlen and Cooking Light, January 2000. -- Don't be put off by the long list of ingredients, they are to make the sauce of which you will have a lot leftover. -- It is all so good! Make the Pebre first and then you will have it ready for the steak.
