Cooking: 20 minutes
Marinate Time: 30 minutes
Total: 1 hour 20 minutes

Serves:

  • cupextra virgin olive oil
  • cupsoy sauce

  • 2garlic cloves,minced
  • 1tbspred wine vinegar

  • ½tspred chili pepper flakes

For Steak:

  • 2lbsskirt steak,trimmed of membranes and silver skin
  • olive oil,for grill grates

Instructions

  1. If using bamboo or wooden skewers, place them in a dish and cover them with water to soak.

  2. Place the olive oil, soy sauce, honey, garlic, red wine vinegar, ginger, red pepper flakes, and black pepper in a small bowl and stir to combine. Set aside.

  3. Lay the skirt steak horizontally out on a cutting board. Notice the grain of the steak that goes up and down. Cut the steak into segments, along the grain of the meat, about 6 to 8 inches long.

  4. Then, with each segment, turn the segment so the grain of the meat runs in a line from left to right. Cut thin strips of ¼ to ⅓-inch thick, 1½-inch wide, 6 to 8-inches long, angling the knife, and cutting across the grain.

  5. Place the steak slices in a non-reactive bowl or casserole dish. Toss with the marinade to coat.

  6. Chill and marinate for at least 30 minutes or up to 2 hours.

  7. Preheat the grill. While the grill is preheating, thread the marinated skirt steak strips onto the pre-soaked skewers.

  8. Brush the grill grates with olive oil by folding a paper towel, soak the towel in olive oil, and use long-handled tongs to hold the soaked paper towel and spread oil on the grates.

  9. The grill is hot enough when a hand can only be held up 1 inch above the grill for 1 second.

  10. Working in batches if necessary, lay the skirt steak skewers perpendicular to the hot grill grates. Grill for 3 to 4 minutes per side until cooked through.

  11. Remove from grill and let sit for a few minutes before serving.

  12. Serve and enjoy!
