Grilled Marinated Skirt Steak Salad


This delicious steak recipe is perfect for any occasion. It is a budget-friendly cut of steak but doesn’t taste as such.  Skirt steak can be served with side of potatoes, salad or even served in a steak wrap. The only important part is to marinate the skirt meat long enough in the refrigerator but cooking.



If medium-rare is what you’re after, then cook time should be under 10 minutes. A longer the marinating time will boost the flavors and make the meat more tender, too. You can also marinate the meat in a big batch and keep them in the freezer for later use. Simply defrost the frozen meat in a bag before cooking.  For this recipe, I serve the grilled marinated skirt steak with watercress, cherry tomatoes, corn, red onion and micro greens. Enjoy!

    What a yummy salad. I’ve always loved salads like this that add a nice protein source to them. Eggs are okay, but they get so boring.
