To maximise tenderness, skirt steaks are often marinated before grilling, or pan-seared very quickly, or cooked very slowly – braised in the slow cooker for a minimum 8 hrs on low. Slice against the grain before serving to maximize tenderness. Correct cooking, will give you a superb steak.
How to cook:
- Grill steaks on high heat for a few minutes on each side until browned and place in oven for 5 mins for medium-rare.
- Remove from the oven, cover in aluminium foil and set aside.
- If you don’t like your meat rare, slice the meat into 1cm-thick slices once out of the oven and grill slices for 10 seconds on each side before serving.
