If there are two things I love about Brazilian food, they are Brazilian steak and Brazilian cheese bread (Pao de Queijo).
There is something about Brazilian Steak; it’s meaty, tender, juicy, oozing with right amount of food, and perfectly grilled and charred. It’s so delicious!

Garlic Butter Brazilian Steak
Garlic Butter Brazilian Steak – the juiciest and most tender steak with a golden garlic butter sauce. Takes 15 minutes and dinner is ready.
- 6 medium cloves garlic
- kosher salt
- 1.5 lb. skirt steak, trimmed and cut into 4 pieces
- freshly ground black pepper
- 2 tablespoons canola oil or vegetable oil
- 2 oz. unsalted butter
- 1 tablespoon chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
Peel the garlic cloves and smash them with the side of a chef’s knife. Sprinkle the garlic lightly with salt and mince it.
Pat the steak dry and season generously on both sides with salt and pepper. In a heavy-duty 12-inch skillet, heat the oil over medium-high heat until shimmering hot. Add the steak and brown well on both sides, 2 to 3 minutes per side for medium rare. Transfer the steak to a plate and let rest while you make the garlic butter.
In an 8-inch skillet, melt the butter over low heat. Add the garlic and cook, swirling the pan frequently, until lightly golden, about 4 minutes. Lightly salt to taste.
Slice the steak, if you like, and transfer to 4 plates. Spoon the garlic butter over the steak, sprinkle with the parsley, and serve.
Serve with the following recipes for a truly Brazilian meal: Brazilian Cheese Bread, Parmesan Garlic Noodles, Lemon Herb Roasted Potatoes and Marinated Tomatoes.

Hi Ms Bee
For the garlic butter brazilian steak -would there be any difference to the taste if the fresh parley leaf is substitute with basil leaf since I cannot get parsley leaf in my area of residence
An early reply is most appreciated. Thank you
Basil leaves will be fine. :)
Thanks for the recipe Bee! It was a great hit with the family. I used it on steak for steak sandwiches. Definitely a keeper!
Hi Ming, steak sandwiches sounds yum!
I grilled a sirloin steak yesterday for guests and topped it with your garlic butter. It was awesome!
Served it with oyster mushrooms, asparagus and a heart of palm salad.
A winner of a meal!
