1 Lb. Skirt steak
1/4 Tsp. Garlic powder
1/4 Tsp. Onion Powder
1/2 Tsp. Kosher salt
10 Grinds of freshly ground black pepper
1 Tbsp. Olive oil
1 Cup Sweet & Spicy Plum Hoisin Sauce (get recipe here)
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
1 Package Alexa Baby potatoes, steamed and pan fried (optional)
Steamed carrots and broccoli (optional)
4. Cut the steak in thin slices against the grain. Serve with the potatoes and veggies. Taste and add more salt and pepper if needed. You can also serve additional heated sauce on the side.
NOTE: This is a tasty sauce for skirt steak. Easy to make ahead of time and the skirt steak cooks up fast. The key to working with this meat is to be sure to slice it thin and across the grain so it is tender.
I found these new potatoes in the frozen food isle from Alexa called Baby Sunrise Potatoes with Rosemary and Garlic. You steam them right in their packaging in the microwave for about 7 minutes BUT then, I add them to the skillet in this recipe to impart even more flavor from the meat juices and the sauce plus I let them crisp up a bit on the bottom. This is great short cut to preparing baby potatoes from scratch plus they taste great. Certainly, give them a try but they are not necessary in this recipe.
You can use this same cooking method (and my sauce) on other cuts of beef like a flank steak or sirloin steak. While medium-rare is the preferred doneness, always cook to your own preference… hey, you are the one eating it! LOL
