Balsamic Skirt Steak

Grilled Balsamic Skirt Steak

This recipe for balsamic steak turned out better than expected.  I’m a huge balsamic vinegar fan and a huge steak fan but had rarely married the two flavors together.  The marinade of balsamic vinegar, Worcestershire, and brown sugar were awesome.  The steak turned out flavorful and tender.  We served the steak with a cranberry bulger  (see recipe in a later post) and steamed vegetables. Very easy to make.  Enjoy!

1/4 cup balsamic vinegar

1 Tbs Worcestershire

2 tsp dark brown sugar

1 clove minced garlic

1 lb skirt steak

Cooking spray

1/2 tsp kosher salt and pepper


1. Combine first four ingredients in large zip-loc bag and add steak.  Marinate at room temperature 25 minutes (or refrigerated up to 8 hours).  Remove steak, discard marinade

2. Heat grill pan over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking  spray. Spring steak with salt and pepper.  Add steak to pan and cook 3 minutes per side or until desired doneness (we cooked ours medium rare).  Remove steak from pan and cover with tin foil.  Let stand for 5 minutes.  Cut steak diagonally across the grain into thin slices.

We recommended service with bulger or rice and a vegetable side
