Traditional Marinated Skirt Steak

skirt steak








This skirt steak recipe is great for outdoor barbecues and parties and we assure you that everyone will like the steak. We think marinating the steak for two days is ideal. Many times, one day is not enough for all the flavors to be absorbed and settle; we find that the flavor is weaker. After three days, the steak becomes more vinegary than to our liking.


  • 2 pounds skirt steak
  • 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/3 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning (optional)
  • 10 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 cup scallions chopped

  • 1 cup of miscellaneous herbs minced (rosemary, oregano, thyme, basil, sage, cilantro)
  • 1 tablespoon coconut palm sugar or honey (optional)
