The most foolproof and delicious way to make steak.
Skirt steak is one of our favorite cuts of meat to grill—its thin, ribbony texture is exceptionally forgiving (for any level cook), especially when you marinade it beforehand. This foolproof skirt steak recipe is our take on the South American classic: It starts with a classic chimichurri sauce which is a mixture of fresh herbs like oregano, parsley, and cilantro, plus garlic, minced chilis, olive oil, vinegar, shallots, and lemon juice. The steak gets marinated with half of the chimichurri mixture (save the rest for the sauce!) and then grilled to perfection on our Lowkey Lavender Grill Pan (grill marks FTW), along with charred onions for added flavor. Serve it up family-style to feed a crowd this Memorial Day, or anytime. It seriously can't get any easier than this.
