Grilled Skirt Steak

I found a similar recipe to this a couple of years back. I made some changes and now it is my go to recipe for skirt steak. My family loves skirt steak. I like it because it’s tender, delicious and easy for the kids to chew. For some reason I have a fear of everyone choking on steak. Lol.

This is the perfect recipe to use for fajitas, stir fry or just a big BBQ with a side of potatoes and veggies!

Make sure you buy extra skirt steak. It seems like a lot, but it shrinks when you cook it. And marinate it overnight for the best flavor.

Grilled Skirt Steak


  • Skirt steak(about 3 pounds)
  • Juice from 2 limes
  • Juice from 1 orange
  • 1/3 cup of olive oil
  • 4 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper


  1. Place steak in a shallow pan or a big storage bag.
  2. Add all the ingredients and place in the refrigerator until ready to cook.
  3. Make sure your grill pan is on high heat.
  4. Cook on each side for several minutes depending on the size of your steak.  It should be dark and crispy on the outside.
  5. Take off the grill and let rest for about 10 minutes.
  6. Skirt steak is best when sliced really thin on an angle against the grain.


This would go perfect with any of the following side dishes:

I'm a stay at home mom and my life revolves around feeding my family of four. I love to cook for my husband Matt and two boys(Matthew-11 and Dominick-9). I'm not good at entertaining big crowds. That makes me nervous! I TRY and cook healthy meals, and I TRY to buy organic. Matt likes almost everything except for olives, mustard and fancy cheeses-everything I love)! So I try to find recipes without those ingredients or sneak them into the food I make and then he picks them out... And when he likes something, he has no control. Can't stop. Won't stop! But he really tries to make good choices in what he eats. In the last five years or so we both have made changes for the better in our diet. Matthew eats very little and is very picky. It's hard to watch him eat cause he's always picking! My mom get's so annoyed watching him eat! I was the same damn way as a kid. I tortured my parents by becoming a vegetarian for 7 years! I still can't eat all meat. I'm picky. Dominick loves almost everything! And when he loves it, you know it. It's all over him and the floor. Unlike Matthew. Not a single crumb.... I am 100% Italian-I think.. I grew up in Long Island and always ate really great food!!! While the other kids in school were bringing Lunchables or buying lunch, I was eating a chicken cutlet sandwich! My mom is an amazing cook. Much better than me. I have to pull recipes and follow them. She just whips stuff up in minutes and its amazing! And my dad loves all of her food, and all food in general! Except if its too healthy, like salmon.... Most of the time when he's eating his eyes are closed. He says he can taste it better that way... My sisters both live in Long Island and our conversations usually consist of food, fashion, beauty or kids. Ali is similar to my mom. She whips up delicious meals. And they are usually healthy and light. She says she doesn't eat carbs, which is a lie. Every weekend shes at the pork store picking up twisted Italian bread, sausages, and ravioli. Her eyes light up when her 2 year old Joseph eats. Her goal in life is to feed him. And she hates casseroles. Refuses to make them. Lol Jen is very busy as a dance mom with her two girls. But when she gets in the kitchen, watch out! She cooks up a storm. Her salads are the BEST ever! Usually, it's accompanied with steak and rice or fried chicken cutlets! And there are leftovers for the whole week. The goal of my blog is to share some of my family's favorite foods. I'll let you know what works out well and not so well for me when it comes to feeding the fam!
