Teriyaki Skirt Steak

Wow. It's been awhile since my last post. I have to admit, I have been pretty un-inspired when it comes to cooking, except, of course for St. Patrick's Day. I think I am suffering from between-season blahs, if there is such a thing. The time for winter food is definitely past, but the spring produce isn't quite available yet. But with this gorgeous, sunny weather, that is bound to change soon!

In the meantime, here is an easy recipe for Teriyaki Skirt Steak that you can enjoy any time. (If grilling outdoors is not an option, this steak can be prepared indoors on a grill pan or under the broiler.)

Teriyaki Skirt Steak

1/4 Cup Soy Sauce
1 Tbsp Sesame Oil
1 Tbsp Canola or Peanut Oil
2 Tbsp Mirin
2 1/2 Tbsp Sugar (more or less to taste)
3 Green Onions, sliced
2 Cloves Garlic, Minced
1 Tbsp Sesame Seeds
1 Skirt Steak, 1 1/2 - 2 lbs.
More sesame oil for brushing steak

Heat a non-stick pan over medium heat. Add the sesame seeds and stir until lightly browned, about 2 minutes. Set aside.

Whisk together the soy sauce, sesame oil, canola or peanut oil, mirin and sugar in a shallow bowl. Add in the green onions, garlic and toasted sesame seeds. Add the skirt steak, and turn to coat well with the marinade. Marinade in the refrigerator, turning occasionally for 2 - 4 hours.

Heat your grill (or grill pan) over high heat. Remove the skirt steak from the marinade. Discard the marinade. Brush the steak with sesame oil, both for added flavor, and to prevent sticking. Grill the skirt steak to desired level of doneness, turning once during cooking. The cooking time will vary depending on the thickness of your steak, ours took about 14 minutes total to get to medium-rare. Let rest for 10 minutes, slice thinly across the grain and serve.
