"The problem with bottled sauces and marinades is that the only words you recognize on the ingredients list are ‘high fructose corn syrup,' and ‘dehydrated garlic.' Hopefully, you will see just how simple this sauce is to make. Not only is it MSG-free, but the flavor is far superior to any of those supermarket bottles."

Footnotes

  • Cook's Notes:
  • Skirt steak doesn't need to marinate for longer than 15 minutes because of how thin the meat is.
  • May substitute additional soy sauce for fish sauce.

Thank you Chef John - this is great marinade and made for a delicious fast and easy dinner. I would marinate the meat longer than the 15 minutes called for and as for cooking to 140 - I don't agree - this meat should be pink in the center and only takes a couple of minutes per side on a hot grill. Slice against the grain into thin strips and you can't go wrong. Delicious! Enjoy!

Wow! Very rarely do I think something is worthy of a 5 star rating, but this is simply the best skirt steak I have ever had! Not sure marinated it for 15 minutes would actually do the trick. Maybe it's true, but I didn't want tough meat. So to be sure, I marinated for about a day and a half, turning it over and over in the fridge to make sure all sides were nice and juicy! I can't wait to get more skirt steak to do it again! Thanks for sharing your recipe!
