5. Grilled Skirt Steak with Panzanella
Like many restaurant chefs, Michael White “shocks” fresh vegetables to make them supercrisp by submerging them briefly in an ice-water bath.

Simply toss it with tomatoes, peppers and pieces of grilled ciabatta bread just before you’re ready to serve the steak.
6. Grilled Skirt Steak with Smoky Almond Sauce
Pipían is a sauce made from dried chiles, ground seeds and nuts. This one, with almond butter and anchos, is delicious on steak.
7. Grilled Skirt Steak with Salsa Verde
Skirt steak, nicely marbled with fat, takes well to marinades, like this simple mix of herbs and garlic. Mario Batali accents the grilled meat with a sauce made with more herbs and garlic, plus capers and anchovies; he likes to make his salsa verde superthick.
