Skirt Steak

I had to make a few skirt steaks for dinner the other night,  and I was tempted to ask the Griller to grill. He was very happy when I decided to follow the recipe and pan fry them instead! Too many starving kids were over, so I used two cast iron pans or else I'd be dealing with those starving children all at once, there were friends involved!  One was a big cast iron grill pan, the other a skillet. Both came out really good with this marinade! We loved it, although Miss Picky still had to dip hers in Peter Luger Sauce!

Printable Recipe

3 pounds skirt steak (cut in 1/2 pound pieces)
3 cloves garlic, cut in half
kosher salt
fresh ground black pepper
Worcestershire sauce
2 small onions or a few shallots, sliced
oil for sauteing

Rub both sides of steak with cut side of garlic. In a large ziploc bag, pour in some Worcestershire Sauce, a little salt, some pepper, the garlic and the sliced onions. Let marinate for a few hours in the refrigerator, or at room temperature for an hour.

Add oil to frying pan, heat pan to medium or medium-high heat. When hot, add steak and the onions and sear a few minutes on each side, depending on desired doneness.

Joining Suzy at Kitchen Bouquet for another Flashback Friday because skirt steak has been mentioned here plenty! Any time a steak is being cooked at our house, you can bet there is skirt steak involved, it's Miss Picky and the Big Kid's favorite kind of steak. That just leaves more Porterhouse and NY Strip steaks for me and the Griller!
