  • 2 pounds sirloin steak

Garlic Brazilian Steak Marinade

  • ¼ cup fresh parsley
  • ¼ cup fresh cilantro
  • ¼ cup avocado oil
  • ¼ cup water
  • 2 Tablespoons lime juice
  • 2 Tablespoons freshly minced garlic
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes


  • Marinade the steak. Combine the ingredients for the marinade in a small bowl. Pour the marinade over the sirloin steak in a large gallon zip-top bag, reserving 2 Tablespoons of the marinade for later use. Allow the steaks to marinate on the counter for 30 minutes while they come to room temperature.
  • Preheat the grill. While the steaks are marinating, fire up the grill. Preheat the grill and assemble your rotisserie attachment. If you aren't using a rotisserie, prepare your grill for 2-zone cooking with a high heat side and a low heat side.
  • Prep the steak. Remove the steak from the marinade and shake off any excess. Thread the steaks onto the rotisserie spit. If you are using kebabs, dice the steak into cubes and thread onto the skewers.
  • Grill the Brazilian steak. Place the steak on the rotisserie or high heat side of your grill. Cook, turning frequently, until the internal temperature reaches 120 degrees F (about 8-10 minutes on the grill, 30-45 on the rotisserie). Use a basting brush to coat the steak with the reserved marinade. Move the kebabs to the low heat side of your grill or continue to cook on the rotisserie for an additional 5 minutes or until your steaks reach your desired temperature. 125 degrees F for rare, 135-140 for medium, and 150 for medium well.
  • Rest, slice, and serve. Remove the steaks from the grill and allow to rest for several minutes before slicing from the skewers to serve.
