  • 2 Pounds Skirt Steak
  • 1 Tbsp Course Sea Salt - You want a nice even coating
  • 1/2 Tbsp Fresh Ground Black Pepper - Enough to generously coat


  1. Prepare your grill for direct grilling.  You want your grill as hot as you can get it.
  2. Using a sharp knife, score the skirt steak diagonally in a cross hatch pattern about 1/8" deep against the grain to allow your seasoning to penetrate deeper. This also gives more surface area to get a nice char on the meat.
  3. Season liberally with salt and pepper or whatever seasoning  you want to use.
  4. Grill on a super hot grill for 3 to 4 minutes per side, moving around as necessary if you have hot spots to get a good even char on the meat.
  5. Remove from the grill and let rest for about 5 to 6 minutes under foil.
  6. Slice the skirt steak against the grain approximately 1/4" to 1/2" thick.
