Recipe for skirt steak with chimichurri sauce

Serves 4

The South American sauce chimichurri, made with cilantro, parsley, and olive oil worked until well blended, is the new pesto. Here it goes with flavorful skirt steak, which is rubbed with a chipotle-cumin spice blend and seared in a heavy skillet. Cook the steak in batches if your skillet isn’t large enough to add the meat without crowding.
