In this Latin American dish, skirt steak marinates overnight before it's grilled and served in slices.

Ingredients

(Serves 4)
  • 1 pound skirt steak
  • 1/4 cup low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 limes, juiced
  • 2 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 2 tablespoons, chopped cilantro
  • 1 tablespoon Maggi seasoning sauce
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

Directions

Clean and trim the excess fat and tissue from steak. The steak may need to be cut down to a size that will lay flat on the grill or cast-iron skillet.

In a glass or plastic bowl, combine the soy sauce, oil, lime juice, garlic, cilantro, Maggi seasoning and sugar. Place the clean steak in the marinade and let marinate 4 hours or overnight in the refrigerator.

Remove meat from the refrigerator and let sit out at room temperature for 20 minutes. Heat a grill or cast-iron skillet to high. Place the meat on the hot grill or skillet. Cook for 2 to 4 minutes a side. Place the meat on a cutting board and let rest.

Cut the steak into 2-inch thick pieces, then turn and cut against the grain. Sprinkle meat with salt and serve.
