Brazilian Steak Recipe

Garlic Butter Brazilian Steak Recipe – the most tender and juicy steak with a golden garlic butter sauce that's out of this world good! So easy, plus only 4 ingredients and 15 minutes to make! This delicious steak recipe is perfect with sour cream mashed potatoes or a side salad.
1 lb. skirt steak
6 tsp Garlic
1/4 cup Parsley
Baking & Spices
1  tbsp  Salt and pepper
5 tbsp Butter, unsalted

Prep the ingredients 
The best way to start this Brazilian steak is to prep prep prep! Clean the parsley dry and chop, same with the minced garlic, and get the butter out. Cut the skirt steak into 3 or 4 parts. This garlic butter Brazilian steak is just amazing! It's made with my favorite cut of beef, skirt steak! And only 4 other ingredients (not including salt and pepper). Yes, just 4 ingredients and I bet you have most of them. 4 Ingredients and 15 minutes are all it takes.  It's my opinion this is the quickest and most delicious meal. Especially when short on time or just want something fast but GOOD!  The other great thing about this Brazilian steak recipe: you'll feel like you're dining at the famous, Fogo de Chao. Nothing like eating restaurant-quality dinners in the comfort of your home. 

1.             Cut the steak into 3 or 4 parts. Pat the steaks dry then season both sides liberally with salt and pepper
2.             In a heavy-duty skillet large enough for the skirt steak, heat oil over medium-high heat until it’s very hot. Add the steak and sear both sides (brown both sides) for 2-3 minutes until medium rare or cook longer until your desired doneness. I cooked mine for about 4 minutes on each side. Place steaks to rest on a plate and cover with foil.
3.             In a skillet melt the butter over low heat then adds the garlic. Cook by swirling or using a spatula to move the butter and garlic around until lightly golden. Don’t overcook, or the butter and garlic will burn.
4.             Pour the garlic butter into a bowl and salt to taste. Slice the steak against the grain. Garnish with parsley and then spoon or pour the garlic butter over the steak. Serve immediately.

When I cut the steak into 3 equal parts I like to cook each side for about 4 mins. 4 equal parts: 3 minutes. 
Do not move the steaks around as they cook. Leave them alone to sear (they brown very well). 
We love garlic so I used 6 tsp of finely minced garlic. I felt like anything less wasn't as flavorful. Feel free to use less garlic if you like. This is what I use when I don't feel like mincing garlic. 
Cutting the steak
Make sure you cut against the grain of the steak. If not, your steak may be tough. Cutting against the grain will make it nice and tender. 

Tips to make this steak well done: 
If you like your steak well done, just cook it longer until your desired doneness.
