It's almost grill season which really makes me happy! It means dining al fresco and the change of pace to faster cooking. I am by no means a grill expert but I can manage a few things. This steak was made under the broiler but you can cook this meat however you see fit. It's this very simple marinade that is packed with flavor that I'm excited to share with you today.
I served this with sauteed spinach and Israeli couscous. I bought a great couscous mix from TJ's and added some sauteed peppers and onion to bump up the flavor.
Italian Marinated Skirt Steak
1-2 lbs. Skirt Steak
2 cloves garlic
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
fresh parsley, chopped
Mix garlic, vinegar, shallot, olive oil, salt, pepper and parsley in a bowl. Pour over steak, cover and marinate in the refrigerator for at least an hour. Turning over once. (I like to use my Tupperware marinator and just flip the container over and you don't have to worry about spilling.)
Let excess marinade drip off of the meat and discard marindade. Place meat directly under the broiler and cook for approximately. 4-5 minutes per side for medium rare. Or cook on and indoor grill pan or of course, grill it outside. Let meat rest and cut on a diagonal against the grain.
