Mark Bittman Recipe For Grilled Skirt Steak With Chimichurri

Sunday BBQ: Grilled Skirt Steak With Chimichurri

When envisioning steak for dinner, cuts such as ribeye and tenderloin might be the first to come to mind. But don't forget skirt steak, a thin cut that's supreme when it comes to outdoor grilling.

This type of meat has more fat than a hanger steak or flank steak, meaning even the most mildly seasoned skirt steak will have out-of-this world flavor and juiciness.

Highlight the rich taste of the meat with this Mark Bittman recipe. The steak is served with an elemental chimichurri sauce of garlic, parsley, lemon juice, and olive oil. See it when you read more.

2 cups chopped parsley
2/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
6 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
2 tablespoons minced garlic

Salt and freshly ground pepper
4 pounds skirt steak


  1. Light a grill. In a bowl, mix the parsley, olive oil, lemon juice, garlic and crushed red pepper; season with salt and pepper.
  2. Season the skirt steak with salt and pepper and grill over a hot fire until the meat is charred on the outside and rare within, about 2 minutes per side. Transfer to a carving board and let rest for 5 minutes. Thinly slice the steak across the grain. Serve right away, passing the chimichurri sauce at the table.

Serves 8.

Chimichurri is getting really popular. I went to Central America several years ago and we ate a few good restaurants that served it with our steak. I'd never tried it before then, but when I came back I really wanted to make it. It was tough to even find a decent recipe. Now it's all over the place.
