Do you sometimes, just really want a good steak? This Herb Marinated Grilled Skirt Steak is the of your steak dreams.
There’s something very filling and fulfilling about a perfectly seasoned steak. With the summer heat, cooking outside is a tradition. Luckily, hubby was dying to fire up the grill and there was skirt steaks on hand. So what else could we do but put ’em on the grill.
Of course, what made our meal even better, was that hubby was able to entice mom and dad to come over for dinner. Hubby is the grill master and despite an extended weekend he hadn’t spent any time on the grill. In the summer, he typically lives on the grill. There is absolutely nothing he can’t accomplish on that thing. Want it cooked low and slow? He can do it. Want it seared? You got it. Perfectly cooked fish? Yup, he can do that too.
So this Sunday we were graced with skirt steak. We don’t eat steak often, so when we do it’s a real treat. Unfortunately, the last two times we were out and I ordered skirt steak I was disappointed. Well, wallow in disappointed no more…hubby to the rescue. The marinade used on the steak was very similar to a chimichurri sauce and a perfect compliment to the steak.

Combine herbs, garlic, onions, olive oil, sugar, Worcestershire, salt and pepper in a blender. Rub mix onto steak and let it marinate in a bowl or plastic zip bag for at least an hour.
Place mesquite wood chunks logs in grill and set on fire.
Let the grill heat to 500 degrees F.
If you are applying the steak directly to the flame please make sure you turn it every 2 to 3 minutes.
Direct heat will allow the steak to sear which will lock in all of the flavor and keep it moist.
Cook the steak on the grill for 10 minutes. 5 minutes if you prefer your steak rare.
Serve with a some grilled vegetables and my Mama’s potato salad. It’s the perfect meal.
