Skirt Steak, limed

Puerto Rico = Skirt Steak = chimichurri

Interestingly, the skirt steak is not only a popular Puerto Rican dish but also popular in many Latino countries and areas. Argentina, South America and even in Scotland.

My first meeting with this dish was in a restaurant in Old San Juan near to the El Convento. This was in 2002, a very long time ago now.

Ingredients: serves 2

300g (10 oz) skirt steak

juice of 1 lime

1 clove garlic, minced

1/4 cup olive oil

salt & pepper


  • Mix lime juice, olive oil & garlic and marinade steaks for 30-60 minutes.
  • Remove steaks about 5 minutes before cooking.
  • Cook as you would regular steaks on a grill or griddle.
  • Slice the steak in an angle against the grain of the meat.
  • Serve topped with chimichurri.
