Easy grilled skirt steak

In Europe, skirt steak usually ends up as ground beef or as thin slices in the soup. It’s time we take this cut seriously as the Americans do.

Skirt steak is a delicious cut with lots of intramuscular fat and a bold beef flavour. It’s very easy to prepare, and it’s cheap. So that’s a bonus.


  • Skirt steak
  • olive oil
  • 1/2 part table salt
  • 1/2 part black pepper
  • 1/2 part onion powder
  • 1/8 part garlic powder
  • 1 part dried parsley
  • 1 part dried oregano

How to

  1. Oil up the skirt steak. Mix the ingredients for the dry rub and sprinkle it on the meat.
  2. Let this sit while you start up your grill. Fire up the grill for direct grilling.
  3. Put a sear on the skirt steak. This takes only 2 minutes per side.
  4. Slice the skirt steak against the grain and enjoy it on some tortillas, taco or quesadillas.
