  • Prepare steak: Pound skirt steak flat with a meat pounder. Transfer steaks to a shallow dish. Add 1 tablespoon oil, garlic, and parsley; turn steaks to coat. Marinate in refrigerator at least 2 hours and up to overnight.

  • Preheat a grill pan. Brush grill pan with oil. Remove steaks from marinade, and season with salt and pepper. Place steaks on grill, and cook 2 to 3 minutes. Turn, and continue cooking to desired degree of doneness. Transfer steaks to a cutting board; let stand 10 minutes.

  • Thinly slice steaks crosswise. Divide evenly between 4 plates and drizzle with chimichurri sauce. Serve with tomato wedges, onion, and watercress.

This was AWFUL! This was my second attempt at skirt steak -- never again. Even though I pounded it thin, marinated and cut it exactly as directed, it was barely edible -- chewy and tough. The chimichurri was very tasty, and next time I will make the sauce but serve it with a grilled siroin steak instead.

I tried this and didn't care for it...the vinegar was over powering. Next time I think I will try lemon juice instead. I found this recipe: 1/2 cup olive oil 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice 1/3 cup minced fresh parsley 1 clove garlic 2 minced shallots 1 teaspoon minced basil, thyme or oregano, or mixture Salt and pepper to taste
