Serve Restaurant-Style Brazilian BBQ in Your Backyard

MISSION, KS -- (Marketwired) -- 06/20/14 -- (Family Features) Popular in restaurants across the country, Brazilian -- or churrasco-style -- barbecue is making a move to the backyard, as cited in the McCormick Flavor Forecast® 2014: Grilling Edition. It's a natural fit for patio gatherings, especially those cheering on a team during soccer's biggest tournament.

The long skewers of slow-roasted meat common in Brazilian restaurants are surprisingly easy to recreate at home. By incorporating zesty seasonings and using a quick marinating technique, grillers can easily create tender roasted meat bursting with Latin American flavor.

"This take on Brazilian barbecue has all the elements of great summer party food -- it's served on individual skewers, takes minutes to make, and is a great way to get all your guests in the soccer spirit," said Chef Kevan Vetter of the McCormick Kitchens. "My favorite part of this recipe is the five-minute marinade -- just massage the marinade into the meat to pack in the flavor, eliminating additional time in the fridge."

Brazilian-Style Garlic-Cilantro Steak Skewers
Serves: 8

1     package McCormick® Grill Mates® Garlic Herb & Wine Marinade
1/4   cup oil
1/4   cup water
2     tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
1     tablespoon white vinegar
1     teaspoon McCormick® Coarse Ground Black Pepper
2     pounds boneless sirloin steak, cut into 2-inch chunks
1/2   cup grated Parmesan cheese, divided

Mix marinade mix, oil, water, cilantro, vinegar and pepper in large resealable plastic bag. Add steak; turn to coat well. Massage steak in marinade for 4 to 5 minutes, so meat absorbs marinade.

Remove steak from marinade. Thread steak onto long double skewers. Sprinkle with 1/2 of the Parmesan cheese. Discard any remaining marinade.

Grill steak over medium-high heat 5 minutes per side or until desired doneness. Sprinkle steak with remaining Parmesan cheese.
