Flank Steak Skewers - Issue #64
#11
  Re: (...)
I think I've made more food out of this issue than any other! Last nite - Flank Steak Skewers with Chimichurri Rojo and yes, another winnner. this makes an awful lot, so I have leftovers for twice-baked potatoes tonite and will probably freeze the rest for something later.

I also brushed some tomato halves and pineapple wedges with the chimicurri rojo (on the grill) and it was delicious. It's a little spicy, but not over the top. Just very flavorful.

There are two or three left from this issue to try - well, unless more of you keep reviewing favorably dishes to try...

I'm looking at this one, too, (well, I was until I lost it, I think my middle son borrowed it) I'm assuming you used flank, I've got some hanger in the freezer. Not having the recipe in my hands until tomorrow, is this something I could sub? I love the flavor of hanger steak. I think I remember having to slice it against the grain, so that would work. Just noticed I have skirt steak, too, but
like the hanger better. Too many decisions on a hot day, 99 degrees (feels like 107 w/humidity), makes that April blizzard seem refreshing!

Thanks!

These flank steak skewers were so good. I love everything I have made from this issue. We had the Pork Florentine on Wednesday, the skewers last night and we are having the turkey tandoori tonight.

The tandorri was fantastic. I thought that the pizza dough naan was great and much better than store bought naan. The turkey was great I marinated it overnight and it was so great. The only thing we did not like was the peach thing. We ended up using just the proper mango chutney we had and it was much better. I also just served mine with basmati rice. We did not make the riata as I was not sure what it would be like without the mint and with my husband being on coumadin I try to avoid the green leafy herbs if possible.
