I think this is now my new favorite salad. I made this steak for dinner one night and ended up eating the salad everyday at lunch until it was all gone! I just loved the flavor of the salad dressing and how great it tasted when it melded together with the steak. I am hooked and it will not be a regular since I try not to eat too much meat but this a keeper for the days I am craving a steak!
Grilled Marinated Skirt Steak (from of your homebased mom!) from Emeril Lagasse
8 cloves of garlic, sliced in half lengthwise (I minced mine)
1 Tbsp. chopped fresh rosemary
1 Tbsp chopped fresh sage
1 Tbsp chopped fresh thyme ( I didn't have so I left out)
1/4 C extra virgin olive oil
1/2 C sherry vinegar (I used marsala vinegar)
One 1 1/4 to 2 lb. skirt steak
1 Tbsp kosher salt
2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
Combine the halved garlic cloves, rosemary, sage, and thyme in a food processor and process until smooth. Add the olive oil and sherry vinegar, and process to combine.
Season the skirt steak with the kosher salt and black pepper. Place it in a resealable plastic bag and add the garlic-herb marinade. Seal the bag and refrigerate for at least 2 and up to 4 hours, turning occasionally.
Preheat a grill to medium high
Remove the steak from the refrigerator and allow it to come to room temperature for 30 minutes.
Remove the steak from the marinade (discard the marinade), and wipe any excess marinade off the steak with paper towels. Place the steak on the grill and cook for 4 minutes. Rotate the steak 45 degrees and cook for another 4 minutes. Turn the steak over and cook for 4-6 minutes for medium-rare. Transfer the steak to a cutting board and let it rest for 4-7 minutes before slicing.
When ready to serve, thinly slice the steak across the grain. Enjoy!
