Skirt steak recipes for tonight

I’m looking for healthy recipe recommendations to make with skirt steak. I’d like to keep the recipes to 30 minutes or less, and fairly inexpensive.

I was thinking salad, but I’m open to all suggestions!

  1. I marinate mine with a mixture of chopped garlic, chopped cilantro, olive oil, lime juice, salt, pepper, and a dash of cumin and then grill either outside on the Weber or inside on my double burner cast iron grill pan. Sooo good!

    1. I love skirt steak sliced for tacos, but also an Italian preparation: uccelli scappati - the skirt is cut into strips against the grain, they have a piece of cured ham (prosciutto) and a single sage leaf thinly pressed onto the strips... the strips are then rolled or folded (ham and sage on the inside), and skewered.

      On the grill... Medium rare.

      I was (pleasantly) shocked at the flavor combination, one of my favorite preparations of ANY steak!
