Seasoned Skirt Steak with Cilantro-Tomatillo Salsa
Servings: 4 Yield: 2 cups salsa Prep 20 mins Grill 6 mins to 8 mins Stand 5 mins


  • 6 tomatilos, husks removed and quartered
  • 1/2 small onion
  • 1/2 jalapeno chili, stem and seeds removed
  • 1 cup fresh cilantro leaves
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • Salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 pound beef skirt steak
  • 1 teaspoon salt

Make It

1. In a food processor, combine the tomatillos, onion, jalapeno, and cilantro; cover and process until smooth. Stir in lime juice and salt and pepper to taste. Set aside.

2. Heat a grill or grill pan to medium-high. Pat the steak dry with paper towel. With one hand, scoop up 1 teaspoon salt and hold it 6 to 8 inches above the steak. Sprinkle the salt evenly across the steak then flip it over and repeat. Holding the salt above the steak allows for more even spreading and a light, thorough coating.

3. Place the salted steak on the grill and cook for about 3 minutes on each side or until cooked to desired doneness. Remove the steak from the grill and let rest for 5 minutes. Slice against the grain and serve drizzled with the reserved salsa. Cover and chill any remaining salsa up to 1 week.
