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

Low Carb Dish


1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
2 cups fresh parsley leaves; finely chopped
3 tablespoons fresh oregano; finely chopped
3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
2 garlic cloves; minced
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/2 teaspoon Salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
Skirt Steak (lbs to your needs)

Original recipe makes 4 Servings



1. For the sauce: Mix oil, parsley, oregano, vinegar, garlic, red pepper flakes, salt and pepper in a bowl; set aside.

2. For the steak: Heat a large heavy skillet over high heat until very hot. Brush steak with oil and season with salt and pepper. Add steak to pan, reduce heat to medium-high and sear until done to taste, about 3 minutes per side for medium-rare.

3. Transfer steak to a cutting board and let stand 5 minutes. Thinly slice across the grain. Stir sauce to incorporate any oil that has separated and serve steak with sauce on the side.
