Serves 3

Marinated Grilled Skirt Steak Ingredients

  • ⅓ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • ⅓ cup soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 1 lime zest and juice
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp garlic minced
  • 1 tbsp jalapeno, minced, pith and seeds removed (optional)
  • ½ tsp black pepper ground
  • 5 lb skirt steak

For Serving

  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 2 tsp chives fresh chopped
  • 1 tsp lime juice

Marinated Grilled Skirt Steak Directions

  1. Add skirt steak marinade ingredients to a large bowl. Whisk to combine the olive oil, soy sauce, red wine vinegar, lime zest and juice, brown sugar, minced garlic, jalapeno, and ground black pepper.
  2. Set aside sauce for later. Remove ¼ cup of the skirt steaks marinade for later. You need to remove this marinade portion before adding the raw steak to marinate. Refrigerating the reserved liquid will solidify the olive oil, so I usually leave it on the counter. Otherwise, take it out of the fridge about 30 minutes before serving the steak so the olive oil reaches room temperature.
  3. Add skirt steak to marinade for 2-24 hours. Add the steak to the large bowl and cover it, or add marinade and beef to a gallon-sized ziplock bag. Refrigerate and marinate for at least 2 hours or up to 24 hours.
  4. Remove steak from marinade and discard liquid.
  5. Grill marinated skirt steak. If desired, brush the grill grates with half the olive oil to prevent the steak from sticking to the grill grates. Heat the grill to high (500°F), then add the steak. Grill each side of the skirt steak for 3-4 minutes until grill marks form. Tip: spray cooking spray on the steak or add olive oil to it before flipping so the steak doesn't stick to the grill. Steak is done once it reaches your desired temperature as measured by a thermometer. Keep flipping steaks every 10-20 seconds until grilled skirt steak is cooked to your liking.
  6. Let cooked skirt steak rest on a cutting board for 10 minutes. Then, slice the steak against the grain (perpendicular to the muscle fibers) and serve it with a drizzle of the reserved marinade (set aside and not in contact with the raw beef from the first step). Sprinkle skirt steak with fresh chopped chives and a squeeze of lime juice.
