Balsamic Steak with Garlic Zucchini

Source: Everyday Food, September 2012


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 5 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
  • 3 medium zucchini, cut into thin half-moons
  • Coarse salt and pepper
  • 1 1/2 pounds skirt steak, trimmed and cut into 4 pieces
  • 3/4 cup balsamic vinegar


  1. In a large skillet, heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium-high. Add garlic and zucchini, season with salt and pepper, and saute until zucchini is tender and browned in spots, about 6 minutes. Transfer to a bowl.

  2. Add remaining tablespoon oil to skillet. Season steak with salt and pepper and cook until browned, 4 to 5 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate and loosely tent with foil.

  3. Discard fat from skillet, then add vinegar, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 2 teaspoons pepper. Cook, stirring, until reduced by half, about 2 minutes. Slice steak; add any accumulated juices from steak to skillet and stir to combine. Drizzle steak with sauce and serve alongside zucchini.
