Makes 6 Serving of "Salt and Pepper" Grilled Skirt Steak

What You'll Need

  • For the Marinade:
  • 2 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 2 cloves mashed garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon white pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • For the Steak:
  • 2 pounds beef skirt steak, cut into 6-inch pieces
  • 1 tablespoon freshly ground black pepper
  • kosher salt to taste

How to Make It

In a large mixing bowl, combine all the marinade ingredients and whisk together thoroughly. Add the skirt steak, and toss in the marinade until all the pieces are coated evenly. Cover the bowl and let sit, at room temperature for 20 minutes.

Remove skirt steak from marinade and pat dry with paper towels. Season with freshly ground black pepper and kosher salt. Cook about 3 minutes per side for medium-rare on a very hot, preheated outdoor grill, or on a grill pan indoors.

Let rest for 5 minutes before serving. Be sure to slice against the grain for the tenderest results.
