Brazilian Grilled Flank Steak

WebMD Recipe from

Total Time: 30 mins

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.


  • 6 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 small hot pepper, such as jalapeño or serrano, minced
  • 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 pounds flank steak
  • 1 14-ounce can hearts of palm, drained, halved lengthwise and thinly sliced
  • 4 medium tomatoes, chopped
  • 1/2 cup chopped red onion
  • 1/2 small hot chile, such as jalapeño or serrano, minced
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 tablespoons red-wine vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt


Step 1
Preheat grill to high (see Broiling Variation).
Step 2
To prepare steak: Combine garlic, hot pepper, oil and salt in a small bowl. Rub the mixture on both sides of steak.
Step 3
To prepare salsa: Combine hearts of palm, tomatoes, onion, hot pepper, cilantro, vinegar and salt in a medium bowl.
Step 4
Reduce grill heat to medium and grill the steak 4 to 6 minutes per side for medium-rare. Transfer to a cutting board, tent with foil and let rest for 5 minutes. Cut the steak across the grain into thin pieces. Serve with the salsa.


Broiling variation: Instead of grilling, in Step 1 position oven rack 6 inches from the heat source and preheat broiler. In Step 4, cook steak on a broiler pan under the broiler until medium-rare, turning once, about 10 minutes total.
