For a just-right side dish, mix up our Basic Potato Salad, replacing the mayo with 1/2 cup olive oil and 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard.


  • ½ cup balsamic vinegar

  • 2 tablespoons light-brown sugar

  • 2 garlic cloves, minced

  • 1 teaspoon crushed dried rosemary

  • Coarse salt and ground pepper

  • 1 ½ pounds skirt steak, cut crosswise into 4 equal pieces

  • Oil, for grates


  1. In a resealable plastic bag or shallow dish, combine vinegar, sugar, garlic, rosemary, 1 teaspoon coarse salt, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Pierce meat all over with a fork; add to marinade, and turn to coat. Let marinate at room temperature at least 15 minutes, or cover and refrigerate up to 1 day.

  2. Heat grill to high; oil grates. Remove steaks from marinade, allowing excess to drip off. Grill steaks 2 to 4 minutes per side for medium-rare. Transfer to a plate; cover loosely with aluminum foil, and let rest 5 minutes.
