Cook's Notes

Because they are well marbled, skirt steaks can go in a hot skillet without added fat. Cook them to medium-rare so they'll be tender, not tough.

    I grew up with skirt steak and there's no way that it can be eaten without first marinating it first!!!!! Use McCormick;s Meat Marinate, follow simple instructions and you'll have perfect cut with ur fork type meat., Overnite is best.

    I was not pleased with skirt steak. It was gamey and tough. If I do make this again, I'll probably just use flank. I also overcooked the potatoes because I didn't realize that the undersides would brown much quicker than the tops. All in all, a failure, but it's not the recipe's fault.

    Forgot to add that we used Arugala and baby Spinach instead of watercress and it was perfect!

    Made this easy recipe tonight and it was yummy! We got a flank Angus Steak because that's what the market had and it came out perfectly. Definitely cook it medium rare. We thought the potoates might have been easier to toss in a bowl rather than on the pan. Otherwise this was a great recipe I'll make again!

    I think skirt steak is also called hanger steak. Its important to cut across the grain or else the meat is tough and you can't chew it well.

    Well I think skirt steaks are weird and sour. But not sweet and that is a cord on bleu chef cooking the steak and it still tastes weird!!!!!!

    Here in Southern California at many of the Hispanic markets, skirt steak goes by a different name -- flap meat. Makes wonderful fajitas. We marinade it then BBQ it. I had never thought of cooking it in a skillet. Sounds wonderful! Gina

    To Jayneagayne -- we do have skirt steaks in Canada but they are mostly called that in restaurants. They are also called grilling, marinating, flank, or round steaks - they are almost the same thing. They are usually very cheap to buy and taste pretty good. Enjoy!!!!
