I need some help cooking some skirt steak. I have some skirt steak that I want to grill. I know that, most of the time, people marinate their skirt steak before grilling it, and I am not against that. I want to keep this totally Keto compliant, so no marinades with fruit juices or molasses.
I’ve marinated skirt steak in salsa with extra Adobo and cumin, but the problem is that, even though I wipe it off with paper towels and my grill is flaming hot, I can’t get a good sear or crust on the steak. If I cook it long enough to get the kind of sear/ char that I like, it’s over cooked. I like my skirt steak medium rare in the middle. I’ve tried different marinade times - from 1 hour to 24. Doesn’t seem to make a difference.
I know to have the meat at room temperature before putting it on the grill, to let it rest and to slice it against the grain. I’m fantastic at grilling steaks and searing meat for pot roast, etc. I just really seem to always fail with both skirt and flank steaks.
I really need some advise about this. I have this amazing organic, grass-fed beef and I don’t want to ruin this cut yet again!
