CHORIZO AND BEEF SKEWERS WITH CHIMICHURRI

Serves 4.

From "Weber's Time to Grill," by Jamie Purviance.

Chimichurri sauce:

• 1 c. firmly packed fresh Italian parsley leaves and tender stems

• 2 medium garlic cloves

• 1/4 c. extra-virgin olive oil

• 2 tbsp. white wine vinegar

• 1 tbsp. water

• 1/2 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes

• Kosher salt and ground black pepper

Meat:

• 1 lb. top sirloin, about 1-in. thick, trimmed of excess fat, cut into 1-in. cubes

• 12 oz. fully cooked Spanish-style chorizo sausages, cut crosswise into 1-in. pieces

Directions

In a food processor, whirl the parsley and garlic until finely chopped. With machine running, add oil, vinegar and 1 tablespoon water in a steady stream. Season with red pepper flakes, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Pour about half of the chimichurri into a small bowl.

Prepare grill. Season cubed beef with 1/4 teaspoon salt and |1/8 teaspoon pepper. Thread beef and chorizo pieces alternately onto skewers. Brush meat with the chimichurri sauce left in food processor.

Grill skewers over direct high heat, with the lid closed as much as possible, until steak is cooked to your desired doneness, 4 to 6 minutes for medium-rare, turning 2 to 3 times (watch for flare-ups). Serve warm with the reserved chimichurri spooned over the top.
