Directions

  1. place all ingredients, except steak and salt, in food processor and pulse to a thick sauce. Reserve 1/3 cup (75 mL) of this chimichurri sauce in small bowl, cover and refrigerate.

  2. Spoon remaining sauce into large glass or stainless steel bowl. Add cubed steak, toss to coat. Cover and marinate in refrigerator 1 to 4 hours, turning once.

  3. Preheat BBQ to medium-high heat. Thread meat onto 4 metal or wooden skewers (if using wood, soak skewers in cold water at least an hour before using.) Season kebabs with salt. Grill 6 to 8 min., turning occasionally, or until desired doneness.

  4. Divide kebabs among 4 plates. Place heaping tablespoon of reserved chimichurri sauce alongside for dipping.

Tip

Instead of beef, make these kebabs with cubed lamb or pork. For spicy kebabs, add a pinch of crushed chili flakes to the chimichurri sauce.
