Looks great. I do a similar thing with skirt steak. I prefer it to any other cut of beef. Call me crazy, at least I'm a cheap date.

I must admit I've not yet tried chimichurri. What are the greens? Parsley and what? Does it also go well on pork?

Flank steak IS my most favorite cut of beef; HANDS DOWN. While I marinate mine a bit differently (but not by MUCH), skirt steak to me is the most flavorable cut of beef. Now, for the strange part... I can't get same in my area. I can get it in the city where I work though, some 40 miles away.

Traditional is made with oregano and parsley. You can also use cilantro only.

Correct. I've not tried it on pork but see no reason why it would not do well.

Flank and skirt steak are both wonderful.......especially for making bracciole.

Hi Cathy,

No, about five cloves.

Hi lleechef,

Have not heard from you in a while, still in southern CA? My Sicilian Grandmother made the best bracciole in the world on an old wood stove. Talk about good eats.

Hi John, Yep, still here and shivering because the high today was 60! Rough, I know. Yes, bracciole is a delight. Especially when made with garden tomatoes.
