Grilled skirt steak cooks up in a jiffy and delivers a rich, flavorful, deliciously charred meat in under 10 minutes of cooking time!



For Simple Grilled Skirt Steak:

  • 1 pound flank steak
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Drizzle of olive oil

Skirt Steak Marinade:

  • ½ cup coconut aminos
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon granulated garlic (or 3 cloves fresh, minced)


  1. If you are going to marinate your meat, mix up your marinade and pour over top of the skirt steak in a casserole dish or in a plastic bag. Marinate for 30 minutes or up to 24 hours. If you are not using a marinade, brush a little olive oil over the surface of the skirt steak and simply season with sea salt and cracked black pepper.
  2. Heat your grill to a high heat of 450-500℉ or heat your grill pan on the stove over high heat.
  3. Place your skirt steak on the hot grill and grill for 3-5 minutes on each side.
  4. After grilling, allow the meat to rest for 5 minutes.
  5. Using a sharp slicing knife, slice the steak against the grain into thin slices.
  6. Serve and enjoy!
