Brazilian Grilled Flank Steak

Brazilian Grilled Flank Steak

Barbecued meats (churrasco) are served in churrascarias, Brazilian barbecued-meat restaurants, with a salsa-like sauce as an accompaniment. Since hearts of palm show up at every salad bar in these restaurants, we’ve added them to the sauce to give it a tasty twist.

Serves 8
