Skirt Steak

I have several Food Network crushes, and Alton Brown is not one of them. But I'll give it to him . . . the man cooks a mean skirt steak. I found this recipe and couldn't resist testing it out. The steak is marinated in a heaven of brown sugar, soy sauce and spices. I made a few modifications to keep everything simple, and served over 'Bolivian' rice. Enjoy. Skirt Steak based on recipe by Alton Brown 1/2 cup olive oil 1/3 cup soy sauce 1 bunch green onions 2 large cloves garlic 1/4 cup lime juice 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin 3 tablespoons dark brown sugar 2 pounds inside skirt steak
In a large heavy duty, zip top bag, put pieces of skirt steak and pour in marinade. Seal bag, removing as much air as possible. Allow steak to marinate for 1 hour in refrigerator.

Remove steak from bag, and sear in a cast iron pan over medium heat (let about half of the marinade poor over the steak.) Cook steak for about 4 minutes per side for medium well. When finished cooking, place meat in double thickness of aluminum foil, wrap, and allow to sit for 15 minutes.

Remove meat from foil, and slice thinly across the grain of the meat. Serve over rice with marinade spooned over top.

  1. I love Alton, too! Iron Chef America just had a skirt steak challenge... seems pretty specific!
