It’s helpful to me now, but generally speaking, the usefulness and significance is overpowering. Thanks again and good luck!

Thanks for this yummy looking recipe, i always thought ti was toughand it needed to go in the slow cooker, going to try this for the boyfriend tomorrrow night and Skirt si def going to be used for my fajitas in future. My parents put their cows in the freezer (well about one a year) and I never know what to do with the skirt.

Thanks again

ALSO because I am gluten free/fructose free I used tamari (wheat free soy sauce) and hoi sin (instead of honey) and it was AMAZING!

I would highly recommend people try the hoi sin marinade (it is soy/plum/sugar/garlic/chilli). Also adds a lovely red tinge around the outside of the steak when sliced – looked great at dinner time.

Thank You!

from my experience (may very well be determined by the typical size of steak pieces that I prefer to deal with, like you said) I found that the meat is more predictable and “easy going” when it’s been cut across the grain before cooking (otherwise “low and slow” grilling in most cases is the only option, I think). that way, by the time a steak gets served, it’s doesn’t make any significant difference whether it’s sliced across or with the grain in terms of “chewyness” (though I’d still prefer being able to cut it across again).
apart from that, i tend not to salt the meat until it’s on the grill, which makes a steak more tender, although not so evenly seasoned inside and outside. yet have to give your “salty-whisky-moody” scientific recipe a try, though. it’s not quite a grill season here at the moment but as far as I get my hands back on the grill, that will definitely be the grand opening steak (hopefully tasting as good as it sounds).
anyway, thanks again for your recipes and suggestions!

It’s totally up to you on whether you want to cut before you marinade or after cooking. Depends on
a) how big the piece of steak is
b) how big is your grill
c) how much time you have for marinating

For skirt steaks, I tend to cut the long strips into a couple manageable sections (WITH the grain); marinate; grill; then slice right before serving AGAINST the grain.

When you see a whole piece of skirt steak, you’ll understand what I mean, but it’s hard to explain w/o showing you a photo. I’ll work on a skirt steak post in next week or so.

By: UA Beef Lover Tue, 29 Dec 2009 17:32:59 +0000 came across your blog and it’s like a blessing for a beef lover like me. thanks for that!
you keep urging your readers to slice the steak across the grain before serving. however, i’ve always thought that it’s BEFORE cooking that the meat should be cut across, which makes it…ummm…more perceptive to both marinade/seasoning and the heat when it’s being cooked. that said, i can hardly imagine how a steak already cut across the grain in the very beginning could be cut that same way again when it’s done.
now my question is: for you, what is the right time for a steak to be cut across? whether it should be before marinating/seasoning or when a steak is done?

Thank you.

By: Mia Mon, 20 Jul 2009 03:39:46 +0000 I tried this tonight and it was so good. I only marinated the meat for 30 minutes and it still came out delicious! Tender and tasty. Thanks so much Jaden! Every recipe I have made of yours is so yummy. My husband and I are fans! Can’t wait for your cook book!

By: Carrie Oliver Sat, 25 Apr 2009 13:12:01 +0000 Jaden, I finally got around to making this recipe but with pork chops. 15-year old daughter could not stop saying how good it was. Which it was. Thanks, will definitely try with skirt steak, next.

By: EAT! Wed, 04 Feb 2009 14:41:00 +0000 Just discovered skirt steak this past summmer. I was always a flank steak buyer. Now skirt steak is a fav at our house. The $6.99/pound price tag hurts, but we can’t eat chicken every night.
