Based on a dish you’ll find in many Rio de Janeiro restaurants, this recipe uses few ingredients but packs a lot of bold flavor. If your garlic has a green sprout growing in the center (the “germ”), be sure to remove it, because it will impart a bitter flavor to the final dish. Like this recipe?

Amazing- simple and delicious.
Awesome! Quick n Easy...I bought Skirt Inner Steak n used this recipe except I marinated the meat with balsamic vinegar,fresh garlic n rosemary for about an hour...
Cooked it in my cast iron skillet, it was so tender I could cut it with a fork! I had fresh spinach n put a bit of unsalted butter n fresh garlic in a skillet...Tossed it around a bit until done...
I sure will be makin this again! Thank you
Delicious! Used flap meat instead of skirt steak since it was available at Whole Foods. Cooked on the grill instead of stove top. Served with Three Pea Saute with Pistachios (also from Fine Cooking) and steamed potatoes. Will serve again soon for a dinner party - prep is less than 30 minutes (for all three dishes). I love dishes that can be nearly fully prepped before and cook in a short time.
