Churrasco is a term in Latin America that broadly refers to grilled meat and is particularly revered in Argentina and Brazil.

Typically made from flank steak, this dish is marinated in a garlicky mixture overnight to infuse deep flavors before hitting the grill.

Once grilled to perfection, it’s traditionally served with chimichurri, a zesty sauce made from parsley, garlic, olive oil, oregano and red wine vinegar.

The freshness of chimichurri pairs beautifully with the smoky, rich flavor of the meat, creating a balance that is both refreshing and satisfying.
