Argentinian Steak with Chimichurri


Argentinian Steak with Chimichurri

This weeks Flavour Battle has us cooking a recipe from the heart of Argentinian cuisine with our mouthwatering Argentinian Steak with Chimichurri. 

Chimichurri, the star of our dish, traces its roots to Argentina and Uruguay, where it was originally used as a marinade and sauce for grilled meats. Its vibrant flavours of parsley, garlic, vinegar, and spices perfectly complement the rich taste of grilled meats.

Skirt steak, also known as “fajita meat,” is a beloved cut in Argentinian cuisine. Its robust flavour and tender texture make it ideal for grilling, soaking up the smoky goodness of the barbecue.

Our Argentinian Steak with Chimichurri captures the essence of Argentinian grilling traditions in a simple yet incredibly flavorful dish. The smoky char from the Firehawk Kamado Grill enhances the natural juices of the skirt steak, while the tangy, herbaceous chimichurri adds a burst of freshness with every bite.

This recipe is not only easy to prepare but also delivers restaurant-quality results that will impress your family and friends. It’s a celebration of good food, good company, and the vibrant flavours of Argentina, right in your own backyard.

So fire up your grill, embrace the spirit of asado, and indulge in the irresistible flavours of Argentinian cuisine with our Argentinian Steak with Chimichurri. ¡Buen provecho!
