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.

  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.
