In Argentina, beef is prized, and it’s often served with chimichurri, a spicy, garlicky sauce that pairs wonderfully with grilled meats and vegetables. Be sure you measure the herbs, then chop them—if you chop before you measure, you’ll use much too much. Skirt steak usually comes in a long strip. It can sometimes be thinner than 1/2 inch, so adjust the cooking
