Salt and Pepper Steak

Salt and Pepper Steak
This recipe is from BA June 2014 and it is more about technique than really being a recipe. This is a very simple dish and when the steak is cut well, it is amazing.
  • 1 lb. skirt steak
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  1. Cut skirt steak into ¼ lb. pieces.
  2. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Grill over medium heat until medium rare, about 4 minutes per side.
  4. Let rest for 5 minutes before slicing thinly against the grain.
Cutting this steak properly is very important, otherwise it can be nearly impossible to chew.

In Tacos:
Saute onions and crushed red pepper flakes in a cast-iron pan - no oil, so they get all smoky - then add slices of day-after skirt steak and cook until crisp.

In a Sandwich:
Pile sliced steak on a grilled baguette with paprika-spiked mayo, thinly sliced onion, and a mess of fresh herbs.
