It’s actually a difficult day for me. I went to my local old reliable meat shop and asked for skirt steak and was rejected.
“You don’t want that stuff. Only good for tacos!” is what the butcher said. I didn’t want to tell him I’ve purchased about $150 of skirt steak from Whole Foods down the street over the last few weeks. C’mon, buddy! If I ask for skirt steak, just sell it to me.
Turns out they don’t even have any at my local butcher, so I returned to Whole Foods and stocked up. No wonder he down-talked this glorious and overlooked cut of meat.
I love skirt steak on a hot grill. Only a couple minutes per side at the most, plus a few minutes to rest. High in fat content and oh so tender and yummy. And better for more than just tacos, trust me.
