Grilled Skirt Steak with Salsa Verde

  • Total Time:
  • Servings: 4
  • Time(Other): Plus 4 hr Marinating

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.

Ingredients

steak
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped flat-leaf parsley
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped rosemary
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped thyme
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 pounds skirt steak
salsa verde
  • 1 packed cup parsley leaves
  • 1 packed cup basil leaves
  • 1 packed cup mint leaves
  • 2/3 cup capers, drained
  • 2 large oil-packed anchovy fillets, drained and chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Hot smoked paprika, for sprinkling

How to make this recipe

  1. In a small bowl, combine the parsley, rosemary, thyme, garlic and olive oil. Spread the mixture all over the steak. Cover and refrigerate on a platter for at least 4 hours or overnight.
  2. In a food processor, combine the parsley with the basil, mint, capers, anchovies, garlic, mustard and sugar and process to a paste. With the machine on, slowly pour in the olive oil. Season with salt and black pepper.
  3. Light a grill. Scrape most of the marinade off the steak and season the meat with salt and black pepper. Grill over high heat for about 3 minutes. Turn the steak and grill for 2 minutes longer, until browned outside and medium-rare within. Transfer the steak to a cutting board and let rest for 3 minutes. Thinly slice the steak against the grain and sprinkle with smoked paprika. Pass the salsa verde at the table.

Serve With

Grilled endive halves.
