Time 8h58m

Yield 4

Number Of Ingredients 10

3 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar, or to taste
2 tablespoons grill seasoning
2 tablespoons chopped fresh oregano
salt and ground black pepper to taste
1 pound skirt steak
2 tablespoons olive oil, or as needed
¼ cup water, or as needed
1 onion, chopped
1 (8 ounce) can mushrooms, drained


  • Whisk garlic, balsamic vinegar, grill seasoning, oregano, salt, and pepper together in a large bowl. Add steak and toss to evenly coat. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and marinate in the refrigerator, 8 hours to overnight.
  • Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat until sizzling; add meat. Cook uncovered until liquids have drained from the steak, 3 to 5 minutes. Reduce heat to medium; cover.
  • Cook steak for 15 minutes; uncover and flip. Add water to the skillet as needed to keep steak moist. Continue cooking until slightly firm, hot, and lightly pink in the center, about 15 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 140 degrees F (60 degrees C). Transfer meat to serving plate; reserve liquid in the skillet.
  • Place onion in the skillet with reserved liquids; cook and stir until softened, about 5 minutes. Reduce heat to low; add mushrooms. Cook and stir until mushrooms are warmed through, about 5 minutes. Pour onion mixture over steak.

Churrasco (Grilled Marinated Skirt Steak) image

Like so many of the best Puerto Rican dishes, churrasco - garlicky wood-fire-grilled steak served with chimichurri - starts by tenderizing a tougher cut of meat (skirt steak) with a flavorful marinade. Although its origins are Argentinian and Brazilian (the word churrasco encompassing grilled meats in both Spanish and Portuguese), variations on the dish are Latin American staples. This recipe kicks up a classic Puerto Rican marinade with a bit of adobo seasoning, and then served with wasakaka, an herbaceous sauce from the Dominican Republic using lime juice. The steak should be grilled over an open fire (the smoke is key), but a gas grill will do, as will a cast-iron skillet. Serve with adobo roasted potatoes, maduros, white rice or arroz mamposteao, plus fresh tomato and avocado slices.

Time 45m

Yield 4 servings

Number Of Ingredients 15

1 1/2 pounds skirt steak or tri-tip (see Tip)
3 large garlic cloves
1 tablespoon fresh oregano leaves, finely chopped
1 tablespoon white vinegar
2 teaspoons olive oil
1 tablespoon adobo seasoning (preferably Loísa or Badía brands)
2 teaspoons kosher salt (such as Diamond Crystal), plus more to taste
1/3 cup fresh lime juice
1/2 cup fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves, finely chopped
1/4 cup fresh cilantro leaves, finely chopped
1/4 cup fresh oregano leaves, finely chopped
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 teaspoon kosher salt (such as Diamond Crystal)
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


  • Pat the steaks dry and place in a large zip-top bag.
  • Combine the garlic, oregano, vinegar, olive oil, adobo seasoning and salt in the bowl of a pilón or mortar and pestle, or a small food processor. Grind into a thin paste, then pour the marinade over the steak. Zip the bag then shake well to coat the meat, rubbing in gently as needed. Let rest on the counter for 10 to 20 minutes, or refrigerate overnight if you have time. Be sure to let the steak come to room temperature before grilling.
  • If using a charcoal grill, start by building a fire with hardwood and kindling, then adding lump hardwood charcoal once the fire is kicking. Allow the fire to mellow. If using a gas grill, set the temperature to 500 degrees.
  • Meanwhile, make the wasakaka: Combine the lime juice, parsley, cilantro, oregano, olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper in a small bowl and whisk to incorporate. If you'd like a creamier sauce, blend in a small food processor or blender. (Wasakaka will keep for 3 or 4 days in a sealed jar in the refrigerator.)
  • Once the grill is ready, remove skirt steak from the bag and shake off excess marinade. Place on the grill and sear for 1 to 3 minutes. Using tongs, pull up the corner to ensure the steak has a good dark char, bordering on burned in places, before flipping, then cook for 1 more minute for rare, 2 minutes for medium-rare. Be careful not to overcook or steak will be tough.
  • Remove steak from grill and let rest for 5 to 7 minutes. Slice into strips and pour over wasakaka, or serve sauce on the side. Taste and sprinkle with additional salt, if desired.
