Brazilian Steak Marinade

Chimichurri sauce just never gets old to my husband and I. We make it regularly and have found so many fun ways to enjoy it! Our most favorite way is this Grilled Rack of Lamb with Mint Chimichurri recipe. I also love to make these Greek Lamb Meatballs and dunk them in mint chimichurri. If you aren’t into the mint chimichurri (but I highly urge you to try it even if you don’t think you will like it) then try this more traditional chimichurri sauce recipe of mine. Either way, you can’t go wrong.

Argentinians are known for their delicious steak marinade, grilling, and chimichurri sauce. This is a marinade we have come up with to mimic their delicious steaks and we could drink it. 

For a Gameday friendly version of this, slice it thin and serve it in tortillas with the mint chimichurri. It’s to die for!
