Steak can be incredibly intimidating for some people. It’s expensive and easy to mess up, making it a very overwhelming protein if you’re new to cooking.
Luckily, this recipe takes the guesswork out of cooking steak. All you need to do is marinate, sear both sides, and you’ll have a steak cooked to perfection.
I suggest cooking this steak recipe in a cast iron skillet. The cast iron skillet is a great uniform heat source. It also gives the steak a really nice sear that adds texture and flavor.
Ideally, skirt steak is cooked at a rare or medium rare temperature. This will give you the most tender result, because as the steak cooks longer, the texture will become tougher.
Cooking the steak at 6 minutes a side in a hot cast iron skillet will give you a perfect medium rare to rare steak.
Using a meat thermometer always helps, too. That way you know the exact doneness of your steak.
After your steak is cooked, it’s time to sit and serve.
