"Churrasco is South American style skewers. I got this from Cuisine at Home Magazine. I haven't tried this yet, but sounded good!!"
Serving Size: 1 (234 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 4
"This was really good. The flavor was nice, I felt that it could have used a little something, but I left out the red pepper because I have a two year old and I didn't want it to get too spicy for her. We didn't cut and skewer so that we could make sure it was cooked the way we wanted it. This was my "one new recipe every week" for this week and it will now go into the regular rotation. We had it with Spanish Rice, Black Beans and Tortillas. It was equally good the next for lunch. Thanks for sharing."
"This was fantastic and actually made for a memorable breakfast. I had and extra pound of flank steak and wanted to use it in a breakfast dish and found this marinade. I cut very thin strips of the flank steak and let it sit for 15 minutes in the marinade and prepared it in a cast iron skillet. While it cooked (just a few minutes) I toasted cheddar-garlic bread and fried eggs. To serve, I buttered the bread placed an egg on top and topped it all with the prepared flank steak and little sauce that formed while cooking. Rave reviews from the family, this one is a keeper!!!!"
"This was simple to prepare, fast, and delicious! No slicing, no chopping--wow! I did not marinate the steak (per directions), and to my surprise, found the steak to be tender and flavorful once cooked. We grilled this on our outdoor BBQ. Modifications including doubling the cumin and red pepper flakes, but in the end, we weren't sure we needed to do this. It probably would have had enough heat without us taking measures into our own hands. We'll definitely make this again. Made for ZWT4."
"Good recipe for flank steak. I will add more spice next time but liked it a lot. Served with sweet potatoes Recipe #138544."
"Wow! Very delicious! I let mine sit in the chimichurri sauce for about 1 hour. The meat was so tender it melted in your mouth. I did used a pre-sliced packaged beef (choice beef chuck strips) instead of flank steak. This is very tasty I loved the tangy red vinegar and the heat of the red pepper flakes. It's a keeper and going in my best of 2010 cookbook. Thanks for posting. :)"
"Love your recipes Diner! This is an excellent steak and one that I will use many times in the future. We all loved it! What a great mix of flavors going on here!"
"Absolutely fantastic!!! Did not skewer the flank steaks BBQ'd them as is and absolutely awesome!!! Would be curious as to how this would taste on other meats such as chicken, I will definitely be using this again....thanks...Anne :-) Added May 20...just want to say we use this marinade now at least once or twice a week, on chicken, beef and pork, my family can't get enough it's fantastic!!!"
"Very unique flavor, and quite good! I followed exactly as noted here, and had good results. I will say that I liked it a good deal more than the other who were at dinner though, so I suspect it might be one of the "love it or hate it" dishes."
"This was absolutely fantastic, thank you!"
"I've never done a dish like this before so was anxious to give it a try. Sweet, spicy & tangy all at the same time. I used oyster blade steaks trimmed & the meat was lovely & tender when finished marinating for a few hours. Dh wasn't all that keen on this one but I quite liked it. Thanks Diner!"
"Yay! This was really good. It presented well and was yummy. Definitely will be repeated in our house soon. Thanks!"
"Wow....this recipe produced one of the most unique and delicious flavors I've ever had! Sweet, yet tangy. Very easy and soooo YUMMY...my family ate every last bit of it. I did marinate our flank steak for about 5-6 hours and it was so tender. The most time consuming part is getting the meat on the skewers, but definitely worth the small effort. My husband and I were looking for a 'Mexican' style steak to eat with margaritas and this was definitely it! This is a keeper!"
"Great seasoning for steak. Very flavourful."
"Fabulous!! The flavor is just a little different which is a good thing. Simple to make! I marinated the flank steak for about 1 1/2 hours and I don't know if it helped but it certainly didn't hurt. We served ours with Recipe #166370. These were moist enough that they would make outstanding sandwich filler. Made for the Babes of ZWT4."
"Such a nice change from all the soy sauce base marinades! The family really liked this and it was so incredibly easy to make. I used chicken sliced in strips instead of the beef and cooked it in my George Forman grill. Then we put it in flour tortillas with some black beans, fried onions and bell peppers. Sour cream topped it off and it was delicious!"
"Easy but very good. We used a little extra cumin. This recipe will go into regular rotation at my place."
"This was amazing! We used cheap steaks, and since I forgot to pick up skewers at the store I grilled the strips on a vegetable grate. The sauce made the steak so tender, and the flavor was perfect. Thanks for a great recipe!"
"I made these for lunch today as they were so simple :) turned out to be delicious as well!"
"Delicious and easy. I'll be making these again for sure. If you're using bamboo skewers don't forget to soak them for 30 mnutes before threading the meat on to stop them burning."
"VERY good!!!! My menfolk made pigs of themselves!! The sauce sticks to the meat so well, that there was no need to baste. I just served the extra sauce at the table. I made exactly as written!"
