Churrasco is basically skirt steak. Skirt steak is usually a somewhat inexpensive cut of meat. The two sauces are a traditional chimichurri and a mock pineapple aioli. It's nice to have choices! Recipe from Ingrid Hoffmann.

Easy, fresh sauce for grilled meat. I just did the chimichurri. To my taste, I prefer relatively a little more olive oil. The addition of oregano with the parsley adds a little complexity to the flavor.

Used this on some smoked Tri Tip. Easy and good! Made for ZWT 9 and the Saucy Silverados.
