Skirt Steak Recipes

kosher braciole

I don't eat meat often. Mostly I save it as a treat for Shabbat, when I can splurge a bit more on the price and the calories.  The trick is finding quality cuts of meat and great recipes that can be made ahead.

I found a winner a winner with skirt steak.

Skirt steak is a thin cut of steak that is prized for its flavor and tenderness, but you have to be careful because it can be very salty.  Most kosher meat is salty, but I still usually sprinkle a little coarsely ground salt and ground pepper before searing to help the meat get a nice char, but leave out the salt with skirt steak.  Instead just use black pepper or a salt-free spice rub.

The best part about skirt steak is its versatility.  It can be seared quickly  and served with any of your favorite sauces, this time I tried a smoky almond sauce. Delicious! You can try a chimichurri or just slice thin on top of a green salad.  Skirt steak works really well in steak fajitas or a steak sandwich.  Make extra for amazing leftovers!

Stuffed Rolled Steak (Braciole)

Ciao bella!  You have got to try this rolled Italian steak recipe for braciole.  A few years ago I saw a favorite chef on the Food Network make this rolled steak filled with spinach and cheese and it looked amazing.  When I got the Skirt Steak from Grow & Behold it was thin and wide and I knew I had to finally make this dish.

I wasn’t sure whether it would work without the cheese or how it would sit for a Friday night.  It was a huge success!  This recipe is pure comfort food and can even be made with matzah meal for Passover.  You can prepare in a slow cooker or keep on low in the oven for a few hours so it’s perfect for Friday night dinner.

You do have to pound the meat, but it’s a quick and easy step for an incredible dinner.

Bahn Mi Taco

Last, but not least, try this Bahn Mi Taco.  A lower carb version of the classic Vietnamese sandwich typically served on a baguette.  Prepare all the ingredients about 1 hour before dinner.  When dinner time comes, grill or broil the meat and serve.  These tacos work particularly well as an appetizer or as a side to a large salad or soup.
