Grilled Chimichurri Beef Kabobs

Chimichurri is equally delicious as both a marinade and sauce for skirt steak, strip steak, chicken - even tuna! Marinate beef, and chicken at least 4 hours or overnight and fish up to 1 hour.


  • Prep Time : 15 min
  • Cook Time : 5 min
  • Ready Time : 20 min




  • 1/3 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 3 cups cilantro, packed
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes, or to taste
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt, or to taste
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 1 1/2 lb beef steak
  • 8 bamboo skewers, soaked in water for 30 minutes


1. Combine lemon juice, cilantro, garlic, pepper flakes, oregano, salt and canola oil in a blender. Process to form a thick puree. Taste and season with pepper flakes and salt as desired. Place 2/3 cup (150 mL) puree in an airtight container and refrigerate; reserve for sauce.

2. Cut beef into 1 1/2-inch (4 cm) cubes. Place cubes in resealable plastic bag with remaining puree; squeeze out excess air. Marinate in refrigerator for at least 4 hours or overnight; turn as needed to evenly coat.

3. Preheat grill to medium-high. Clean it with a stiff brush, then rub with canola oil. Remove beef cubes from marinade, and thread onto skewers; leave a bit of space between cubes. Discard marinade. Sprinkle beef kebabs with salt to taste.

4. Grill until nicely charred on outside with defined grilling marks, about 2 minutes per side for medium-rare, 3 minutes per side for medium, and 4 minutes per side for medium-well. Drizzle some reserved chimichurri sauce over kebabs, and serve hot or at room temperature. Serve remaining sauce on side.

    This sound very good, with vegetables and fried potatos. As long as the beef doesn’t get too dried out.
