Smoked Citrus Skirt Steak
Yield 4 servings
A simple skirt steak marinade using fresh citrus juice and smokes to flavor and tenderize the meat.
- Juice of 1 orange + zest
- Juice of 1 lemon + zest
- Juice of 1 lime + zest
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 1 tbsp maple syrup
- 1 tsp smoked paprika
- 1 tsp dried cumin
- 1/2 tsp of red pepper flakes (or more to taste_
- 1/2 tsp kosher salt
- 1 skirt steak
Put all ingredients in a bowl or a bag. Let sit overnight or at least 4 hours.
When ready to cook. Preheat grill. cook 3-4 minutes a side. Let sit for at least 10 minutes.
Slice and marvel at how tasty it is.
- This marinade would work with other cuts, of course. I'm thinking the best would be flank or London broil.
- I've made this with and without the maple syrup. I like the sweetness the maple syrup adds but if you want less sweet results, I'd skip. The citrus is enough without it.
- One time I made this with 4 cuties instead of an orange because it's all I had. Worked just as well.
