Grilled Latin-Style Skirt Steak

If you're looking for a great steak dinner without breaking the bank, try marinating an inexpensive cut of meat. This marinade imparts a vibrant flavor with a distinctly Latin influence. Serve grilled onions and peppers alongside the steak. From the book "Mad Hungry," by Lucinda Scala Quinn (Artisan Books).




  • 4 cloves garlic, smashed
  • 3 to 4 tablespoons fresh oregano
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 5 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice (about 4 limes)
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 pound piece of skirt steak


  1. Step 1

    To a large re-sealable bag, add 4 smashed garlic cloves, fresh oregano, salt, pepper, extra-virgin olive oil, lime juice, and sugar.

  2. Step 2

    Add skirt steak, seal the bag and move the steak around, making sure it is submerged in the mixture.

  3. Step 3

    Place the bag in a large glass bowl to store in the refrigerator for a few hours or overnight.

  4. Step 4

    When the steak has finished marinating, remove it from the plastic bag and place it on a hot grill pan.

  5. Step 5

    Cook about 4 minutes on each side.

    Thanks so much for this wonderful recipe. I had fun making it with my husband and enjoyed it for two days. It was even better the second day. Keep it up. Love, love, love the show.
