How to Prepare FAMU's Beef Outside Skirt..

  • Marinating: To enhance its flavor and tenderness, marinate the outside skirt steak for several hours before cooking. Acidic marinades with ingredients like lime juice, vinegar, or wine can help break down muscle fibers and infuse the meat with flavor.
  • Cooking Time: Due to its thinness, outside skirt steak cooks quickly. High heat for a short duration is ideal, ensuring a seared exterior while keeping the interior tender and juicy.
  • Slicing: Always slice against the grain. This means cutting perpendicular to the long muscle fibers, which shortens them and makes the meat easier to chew.

Beef outside skirt steak, with its rich flavor and tender texture, is a versatile cut that can elevate a variety of dishes. Whether grilled, stir-fried, or seared, it promises a delightful eating experience with every bite.
