Full of flavor, skirt steak is a cut we adore. Here it's seared in a hot skillet, then pepper, onion, and rounds of corn are cooked in the same pan. Griddled flat bread rounds out the meal.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Place garlic, lime juice, cumin seeds, oregano, and parsley in a food processor. With machine running, slowly add 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons oil until combined. Season with salt and pepper.

  • Pat steak dry and season with salt and pepper. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large skillet over medium-high. Add steak. Cook, turning once, until golden brown, 2 to 5 minutes a side, depending on thickness. Transfer to a plate.

  • Pour off fat from pan; wipe clean. Add remaining 2 tablespoons oil, onion, and bell pepper; cook, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are just browned, 3 to 4 minutes. Add corn; cook until browned, about 2 minutes. Return steak with juices to pan along with 1/3 cup garlic sauce. Cook, tossing, 1 minute.

  • Meanwhile, preheat a griddle or cast-iron skillet over medium. Butter both sides of bread halves. Cook, pressing with a spatula and flipping once, until golden, 5 minutes a side. Serve steak and vegetables with toasted bread and remaining garlic sauce.
