Many skirt steak recipes utilize a heavy marinade to tenderize the meat, this recipe has a very light citrus marinade that lets the flavor shine through. Because this cut of beef is thin and can be a little tough, it usually doesn't need much time on the grill. You will achieve the most tender results if the beef is cooked medium to medium rare and is cut against the grain before serving.
2-3 pounds skirt or hanger steak
1/2 cup light olive oil
2 teaspoons salt
4 green onions, trimmed and chopped in half
2 large garlic gloves, minced
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice (about 2 lemons)
2 teaspoons honey
1/8 teaspoons cayenne pepper (or more if you want it zippy)
Place the marinade ingredients in a large zip style bag and massage the bag to mix the ingredients together. Add the meat and allow to marinate in the refrigerator for 4-12 hours. Grill 2-4 minutes per side depending on the thickness of the meat and how well you like your steak cooked.
Cut against the grain into small strips and serve.
