Skirt Steak - Part Deux (With Pics)



I'm doing skirt steak again, but using a little different technique. This one requires a cast iron skillet.

This is a one dish meal that can be done inside, but I do it outside on the grill - keeps the smoke out of the kitchen and I think it adds flavor to do it on the grill (might be my imagination).

This dish is simple and fast. It also is a family favorite, as it is delicious.

Ingredients: Salt, Pepper, 1 T butter, 1 T olive oil, 1 lb. skirt steak, 3 ears of corn, and 1/2 c chopped green onions.

First, simply salt and pepper the steak liberally. This is important, as you'll see, later.


Heat up your cast iron skillet on the grill and add the butter and olive oil. Add your steak and sear on both sides.


Cut your corn off the cob and mix with your chopped onions.


Flip steak after cooking about 2 minutes. Pull when it reaches the correct temperature.


Add your corn and onions to the cast iron skillet that you just cooked the steaks in. Mix the corn with the juices of the steak, butter, olive oil, and seasonings from the steak. Turn off the heat and only cook for a minute or two until the corn is warm, not cooked. That is the secret...


Ladle the corn and onions over the top of the steak for an elegant presentation worthy of serving to any guests.


Whoa! What do you know, medium rare, just the way I like it...


This only works with fresh corn. Canned or frozen corn is not gonna work for this.

Thanks. I am the most popular guy on my street at cookouts, because, apparently, I am the only guy who doesn't burn the food half the time. Part of the purpose of this is to show my friends how I do some of the dishes that I have cooked at some of our block party.

I just thought I'd share with the board.

This is a good one. So easy. Literally 10 minutes from the time I salt and pepper the meat to the time I eat - including time to let the meat rest.

What makes it so good is how the corn absorbs all the flavor from the seasonings and little pieces of meat on the bottom of the skillet. It goes so well with fresh sweet corn.

Jones - try this skirt steak recipe. I know they will have nice corn on the cob at Fresh Market. Let me know how it turns out.

I don't think I've ever had anybody from TD try to replicate one of my postings before, so you can be the first...

PS - skirt steak is the best to do with this recipe, IMHO. Don't know why, but it just is...

Skirt is not as cheap as it used to be.

I bought it on sale for $6.99 lb. I saw it at Publix for $10.29 a lb, the other day. I kid you not...

However, I think skirt is one of the tastier cuts of meat you can get at any price...

Awesome. Season your steaks well - the excess will fall off and end up in your corn. Put the olive oil in the skillet first and add the butter just before you put the steaks in. No more than two minutes on a side, then put the corn and onions in for 2 minutes, tops - just long enough to warm them up.

ETA: Jones was thinking about doing this, today, as well. At any rate, let me know how it goes.

re: Skirt Steak - Part Deux (With Pics)


It was unbelievably tender. My wife ate it with a butter knife and spoon. I swear it was as tender as any filet I've had. Next time I'll do as you suggested and add more salt (went light because my wife doesn't love salt). I ended up cooking them a little longer--they were still bloody rare after a couple minutes on each side because these were rather thick cuts--so I added another 5 min total. The corn/onion medley was really good too. Again I could not believe how they fell apart--just melted in your mouth. My first time with skirt steak and I'll definitely be doing it again. Thanks for the suggestion!
