To make Chimichurri Sauce for Spicy Beef Skewers, you’ll need the following ingredients:

Beef Skewers Ingredients:

  1. 2 pounds beef sirloin or flank steak, cut into 1-inch cubes
  2. 3 tablespoons olive oil
  3. 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  4. 1 tablespoon hot sauce (such as Sriracha or your favorite hot sauce)
  5. 1 tablespoon smoked paprika
  6. 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  7. 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  8. 1 teaspoon onion powder
  9. 1 teaspoon salt
  10. 1 teaspoon black pepper
  11. Wooden or metal skewers (if using wooden skewers, soak them in water for 30 minutes to prevent burning)

Chimichurri Sauce Ingredients:

  1. 1 cup fresh parsley, finely chopped
  2. 1/2 cup fresh cilantro, finely chopped (optional, for extra flavor)
  3. 4 cloves garlic, minced
  4. 1/2 cup olive oil
  5. 1/4 cup red wine vinegar

  7. 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes (adjust to taste)
    Salt and pepper to taste.


Making Spicy Beef Skewers with Chimichurri Sauce: A Step-by-Step Recipe

 Make the marinade for the beef.

  1. Mix together the olive oil, spicy sauce, soy sauce, smoked paprika, cumin powder, onion powder, garlic powder, salt, and black pepper in a big mixing bowl.
  2. Toss the meat cubes in the marinade to ensure uniform coating. To let the flavours marry, cover and chill for at least an hour, but better overnight.
  3. Olive oil, red wine vinegar, oregano, chopped parsley, minced garlic, chopped cilantro (if used), and red pepper flakes should all be combined in a medium-sized bowl.
  4. To taste, add salt and pepper for seasoning. Until all the ingredients are mixed, thoroughly mix.
    Use a food processor or blender to mix the ingredients for a smoother sauce. If necessary, taste and adjust the seasoning. Put aside to allow flavours to meld.
  5. Put the Skewers Together
    To ensure consistent cooking, thread the marinated beef pieces onto the skewers, making sure to position them properly.
  6. Turn on the grill.
    Set the temperature of your grill to medium-high, or around 400°F/200°C. To grill indirectly, place the charcoals on one side of the grill.
  7.  Fire Up the Kebabs
    Put the steak skewers directly into the grill. Cook, rotating regularly, for 2 to 3 minutes on each side, or until the meat is well browned and cooked to your your desired level of doneness.
  8. For medium-rare, aim for an internal temperature of 135°F (57°C); for medium, 145°F (63°C); and for well-done, 160°F (71°C).
  9. Present and Savour
  10. After taking the skewers from the grill, give them some time to rest.
  11. Serve the chimichurri sauce either poured over the top or on the side beside the grilled beef skewers.
  12. If preferred, garnish with more fresh herbs.
    Serving Ideas
  13. To finish your supper, you can serve spicy beef skewers with chimichurri sauce with a selection of side dishes:

Grilled Vegetables:

  1. For a colourful and healthful side dish, serve with grilled bell peppers, zucchini, or asparagus.
  2. Rice or Quinoa: The robust flavours of the meat and chimichurri sauce are complemented with a straightforward side of rice or quinoa.
  3. Salad: Pair with a fresh green salad or a tangy coleslaw for a refreshing contrast.
