Skirt steak in Detroit Metro

Rheta Mar 30, 2008 02:57 PM

Hola. Just back from Mexico and want to recreate the arrachera I had. Is there any place in metro Detroit(Farmington, W. Bloomfield, Novi, Northville, etc.) where I can purchase beef skirt steak? Gracias

    Don't know about skirt steak but you can reliably buy flatiron steak at Krogers. They are apparently very similar.

      Sparrow Meat Market in Ann Arbor (Kerrytown) carries it - grass fed. I know that some folks might replace skirt steak with flatiron steak; skirt steak is from the belly, where a flatiron steak is from the shoulder.

          Yes bigcab ! La Colmena has expanded bigtime ! The Honey Bee rocks ! About once a month I drive away from , and past , many great markets to go to La Colmena . What a market , the only place I know of where you can buy an unordered pigs head , year round . We should all support this market and all the hard work that goes on with making such an enterprise successful . Plus , Los Galanes is right down the street . Mmmm...

            I'd second Nino Salvaggios on Middlebelt in Farmington Hills if you're looking in the western suburbs.
