Brazilian Meat Skewers With Red Chimichurri Sauce

Are you getting into action in Rio as much as I am?! We’re big into the summer games in our house, with swimming, gymnastics and soccer being the big attractions for us. So, in celebration of the games in Rio, I thought I’d share this Brazilian Meat Skewer with Red Chimichurri Sauce recipe!

These Brazilian Meat Skewers are packed with flavor using pork tenderloin and strip steak, marinated with McCormick Grill Mates Brazilian Steakhouse Marinade as the main spice – it’s really amazing!

But it’s not just Rio that make this a great time to cook up these Brazilian Meat Skewers. McCormick has put together a Flavor Forecast that identifies Bold Brazilian Sauces as an emerging flavor for this summer in their annual report.

I chopped my leftovers into smaller bites and threw them in a corn tortilla topped with the Red Chimichurri Sauce – best leftovers ever! I also used it on a breakfast omelette. If a sauce can make me sweat and my nose run, it’s going on everything!

Instructions
For the Red Chimichurri
  1. Place all ingredients in food processor or blender; cover. Process just until finely chopped; Refrigerate at least 30 minutes to blend flavors.
For the Brazilian Meat Skewers
  1. Mix Marinade Mix, oil, water and vinegar in small bowl. Reserve 2 tablespoons for brushing. Place pork and steak into separate large resealable plastic bags or glass dishes. Divide remaining marinade evenly among the pork and steak; turn to coat well.
  2. Refrigerate 15 minutes or longer for extra flavor. Remove both meats from marinade. Discard any remaining marinade. Thread pork and steak onto skewers.
  3. Grill skewers over medium-high heat 8 to 10 minutes or until meat is to desired doneness, turning occasionally and brushing with reserved marinade.
  4. Serve with the Red Chimichurri sauce and enjoy!
Recipe Notes

If using wooden skewers, soak thoroughly in water for at least 30 minutes before threading with meat. This prevents them from burning when on the grill.

    mmmmmh yummmy! do you thnk I can use white vinegar too?

  • Kavita

    Love these, they look perfect for the BBQ! Great way to celebrate the Olympics!

    These are probably very tasty, but in Brazilian BBQ (churrasqueira) you don’t marinate meat. It’s thickly coated with very coarse salt crystals for a while to dry out and seal the surfaces. Then the salt crystals are removed before cooking. Also, chimichurri is from Argentina and Uruguay, not Brazil.

  • These look pretty tasty. I’ll have to check this mix out as I use McCormick’s seasoning blends quite frequently. You should check out my Brigadieros the Rio Games inspired me to make.
