Grilled Skirt Steak with Chimichurri Sauce

Grilled Skirt Steak with Chimichurri Recipe

Grilled Skirt Steak with Chimichurri is a classic South American dish that is loved by many for its bold flavors and tender, juicy steak. While this dish is traditionally made with a simple marinade and a basic chimichurri sauce, this recipe takes it up a notch with the addition of Revolution Barbecue's Texas Beef BBQ Rub and Calabrian chilis.
The rub is a special blend of spices that elevates the flavor of any beef dish. With a mix of flake sea salt, black pepper, granulated garlic, granulated onion, red and green bell peppers, and paprika, this rub brings the perfect balance of savory and smoky flavors to the skirt steak.
But the real secret to this recipe is the addition of Calabrian chilis, a spicy and slightly sweet Italian pepper that adds an unexpected kick of heat to the chimichurri sauce. This unique twist on the traditional recipe was added by my wife, Vida (@mrsrevolutionbbq), who loves experimenting with new ingredients and flavors in the kitchen.
Combined with the fresh herbs, garlic, and tangy red wine vinegar, the Calabrian chilis give this chimichurri sauce a complex and delicious flavor that perfectly complements the rich, smoky flavor of the grilled skirt steak. This recipe is perfect for any occasion, whether you're hosting a summer barbecue or just looking for a flavorful and satisfying weeknight dinner.

For the Steak

For the Chimichurri sauce

  • 1 cup fresh Italian parsley leaves
  • 1 cup fresh cilantro leaves
  • 2 tablespoons roughly chopped red onion
  • 1 Fresno chile seeded
  • 2 tablespoons crushed Calabrian chili pepper
  • 4 to 6 garlic cloves peeled
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Revolution Barbecue Texas Beef BBQ Rub
  • 3/4 cup extra virgin olive oil


  • Preheat your grill to high heat.
  • Remove the skirt steak from the fridge 30 minutes before grilling and let it come to room temperature. This will help it cook evenly.
  • Rub the skirt steak all over with olive oil and then sprinkle 1/4 cup of Revolution Barbecue Texas Beef BBQ Rub evenly over both sides of the steak, gently patting it into the meat with your fingers. Make sure the steak is evenly coated with the rub, but avoid creating a paste.
  • Place the steak on the hot grill and cook for 3-4 minutes on each side for medium-rare. If you prefer your steak more well-done, cook for an additional minute on each side.
  • While the steak is cooking, prepare the chimichurri sauce. In a food processor, combine the parsley, cilantro, red onion, Fresno chile, Calabrian chili, garlic cloves, red wine vinegar, lime juice, and 1 1/2 teaspoons of Revolution Barbecue Texas Beef BBQ Rub. Pulse until the ingredients are slightly chunky.
  • Transfer the chimichurri to a small bowl and stir in the olive oil until fully incorporated. Adding the olive oil last prevents the sauce from being fully pureed and preserves the texture of the ingredients.
  • Once the steak is cooked to your desired level, remove it from the grill and let it rest for 5-10 minutes.
  • Slice the steak against the grain into thin strips. Drizzle the chimichurri sauce over the steak and serve immediately. Enjoy your delicious Grilled Skirt Steak with Chimichurri!


One tip we have for making this Grilled Skirt Steak with Chimichurri recipe is to let your steak rest for at least 5 minutes after taking it off the grill. This allows the juices to redistribute, resulting in a juicier and more tender steak.
