Grilled Skirt Steak with Thai Red Chili Sauce & Fresh Thai Basil
While gazing across the butcher counter at Whole Foods yesterday, we came across some beautiful Skirt Steak for $7.99 lb...a decent deal considering the hefty price tag this (what used to be considered modest) cut of meat is demanding now a days.
It seems 10-15 years ago....
...you could pick up Skirt Steak for $3.99 lb...but its tender, juicy, marbled texture ~ perfect for soaking up marinades and best cooked on a screaming hot grill ~ has elevated its status.
Last night we simply salt and peppered the Skirt Steak on both sides, then grilled it quickly over a super hot charcoal grill...(about 3-4 minutes per side). We accompanied the steak with a homemade chimichurri sauce, grilled artichokes, lemon and bread.
Here, I took the leftover Skirt Steak and (craving some heat) whipped up a Thai Red Chili Sauce. Lightly drizzling the sauce over the top of the meat and finishing it off with fragrant, fresh Thai basil... made a perfect low carb lunch ...before prepping potatoes for dinner!
