Skirt Steaks are very flavorful but can be tough. By applying a wet rub and letting it marinate for a while, the steak will tenderize nicely. Remember to grill it hot and fast and try not to overcook. These steaks are perfect as an entree but can also make a great addition to dishes like tacos.

What You'll Need

  • 1 3/4 to 1-pound (450 kg) skirt steak
  • 1 tablespoon (15 mL) chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon (5 mL) ground cumin
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 teaspoons (10 mL) Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon (5 mL) coarse salt
  • 1 teaspoon (5 mL) sugar (use agave if preferred)
  • 1 teaspoon (5 mL) freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon (2.5 mL) allspice
  • 1/4 teaspoon (12.5 mL) chipotle chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon (15 mL) white vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon (15 mL) vegetable oil

How to Make It

  1. Trim fat from steak. Cut steak into serving pieces.
  2. Mash garlic and salt together to form a paste.
  3. Mix together chili powder, cumin, garlic paste, Worcestershire sauce, vinegar, chipotle chili powder, sugar, black pepper, allspice, and oil and rub all over the meat. Place steak in a resealable plastic bag and marinate for up to 1 hour.
  4. Prepare grill for medium-high heat. Cook steaks until medium rare.
