Skirt steak makes a quick and easy weeknight meal! Super easy, yet impressive summer meal!
Skirt steak is one of my favorite cuts to grill. The marinade gives it so much flavor, a great way to feed a crowd! Topped off with this amazing chimichurri, that has herbs, and garlic and will make everyone crave seconds.
This steak is best grilled to medium, it comes out perfectly juicy every time, and is hands down one of the best summer meals!
The skirt steak is rarely thicker than 3/4 of an inch, and is a steak that loves marinades and high heat cooking. Which makes for a super fast cook.
Always cut against the grain, it makes the meat the most tender. This recipe will easily feed four people, but more if you use it for tacos, or fajitas or even on salads.
This chimichurri sauce adds amazing flavor to this grilled steak. Or put some on top of fresh sliced tomatoes …YUM!!
