Print Friendly, PDF & Email


  • 2 pounds skirt steak
  • ½ cup olive oil
  • ¾ cup soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon dijon mustard
  • 1 medium shallot, minced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon cracked black pepper


  1. Mix the oil, soy sauce, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, garlic, shallot and ground black pepper.  Place meat in a shallow dish. Pour marinade over the steak, turning meat to coat thoroughly.  Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours. Remove steak from refrigerator and allow to come to room temperature before going on the grill.
  2. Preheat grill for medium-high heat. Oil the grill grates. Place the steak on the grill (discard marinade) and allow the steak to grill for 5 minutes per side (this delivers a medium rare steak) or to desired doneness.  Remove from the grill,  tent with foil and allow steak to rest for 7-10 minutes.  Slice thinly to serve.
