· 1 lb skirt steak
· salt and pepper for taste
· 6 tsp minced garlic Add half if you like a less garlic flavor
· ¼ cup chopped parsley
· 5 tbsp unsalted butter
· salt to taste for the butter
1. Cut the steak into 3 or 4 parts. Pat the steaks dry then season both sides liberally with salt and pepper
2. In a heavy duty skillet large enough for the skirt steak, heat oil over medium-high heat until it’s very hot. Add the steak and sear both sides (brown both sides) for 2-3 minutes until medium rare or cook longer until your desired doneness. I cooked mine for about 4 minutes on each side. Place steaks to rest on a plate and cover with foil.
3. In a skillet melt the butter over low heat then add the garlic. Cook swirling or using a spatula to move the butter and garlic around until lightly golden. Don’t over cook, or the butter and garlic will burn.
4. Pour the garlic butter into a bowl and salt to taste. Slice the steak against the grain. Garnish with parsley and then spoon or pour the garlic butter over the steak. Serve immediately.
This recipe will feed a family of four. You can double the meat without having to adjust the onion and gravy. Here is what you will need to make this recipe
4 to 6 slices of Round Steak
2 Pouches of Onion Gravy
2 C of Hot Water
1 Medium Yellow Onion, Sliced
3 Cloves of Garlic, Peeled and Smashed
2 T of Butter
Again, I made this in my Instant Pot, I will add adjustments for a crock or an oven in the steps.
Use a skillet and 1 T of butter to sear off both sides of your round steak. I only cooked these on each side for 2 to 3 minutes.
In your Instant Pot, sauté the onions and the garlic in 1 T of Butter.
Add the slices of meat to the pot.
Add the two pouches of the gravy to 2 C of hot water and dissolve.
Pour over the meat and onions.
Set your Instant Pot to the meat setting and cook on high pressure for 20 minutes.
Release the steam and you are ready to serve.
· ⅓ cup lime juice
· ¼ cup pineapple juice (no sugar added)
· 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
· 3 tablespoons olive oil
· 1 tablespoon minced garlic
· 2 teaspoon EACH: ground cumin AND chili powder (or more to taste)
· 1 teaspoon EACH: kosher salt AND smoked paprika
· ½ teaspoon EACH: black pepper AND red pepper flakes (or more to taste)
· ¼ cup chopped cilantro
· 1 ½ – 2 pounds skirt or flank steak
· 1 tablespoon oil (high heat)
· 2 medium white onions, sliced
· 1 large poblano, ribs and seeds removed then sliced
· 2-3 bell peppers, thinly sliced (any color you please!)
· guacamole, salsa, cilantro leaves, salsa verde, sour cream, black beans, rice, tortillas, cilantro-lime rice, sautéed corn, tomatoes, lettuce, shredded cheese, etc.
1. STEAK MARINADE: Combine the ingredients for the marinade in a large shallow bowl. Give it a taste and check for seasonings, adjust to preference. Coat the steak with the marinade and let sit covered in the refrigerator for at least 2-4 hours and ideally overnight. Remove from the refrigerator 30 minute prior to cooking.
2. Set a large cast iron skillet or pan over high heat and let heat up for a couple of minutes. Add the steak to the pan and fry on each side for about 3-5 minutes or longer if you’d like it more done. Feel for desired firmness. The 3 minutes/side will yield a medium rare doneness. If the pan becomes too hot, reduce the heat to medium high. Remove the steak from the pan and allow to rest for several minutes tented with a piece of foil. Slice the meat against the grain into thin slices. I like to do so on an angle so the meat slices are tender and thin.
3. FAJITA VEGGIES: Add the remaining tablespoon of oil to the pan over high heat, add in the onions, poblano, and bell peppers. Let the veggies begin to sizzle and toss as necessary, cook for a total of 2-3 minutes or longer if you prefer them softer, season with a pinch of salt and pepper. If your pan is small, cook the veggies in a few batches so they don’t steam.
4. ASSEMBLY: Serve them in tortillas or on rice bowls topped with your favorite toppings!
