Make Bobby Flay's version of chimichurri-Argentina's answer to barbecue sauce- in minutes and let it do all the work as both a marinade and a dipping sauce. It's great on steak, chicken, and pork.

Gaucho Steak
2 lb skirt steak, cut crosswise into 3 equal portions
Salt and pepper

1. Place the steak in a large baking dish and pour half of the chimichurri over it. Turn to coat; cover and marinate in the refrigerator for 2 hours.

2. Preheat grill to high. Let the steak come to room temperature. Remove it from the marinade and season with salt and pepper. Grill for 4 to 5 minutes on one side until browned, turn, and grill another 4 to 5 minutes for medium-rare doneness. Remove from the grill, let the meat rest for 10 minutes, and slice thinly on the bias. Serve with the remaining chimichurri on the side.
