  • 2 pounds skirt steak
  • 1 cup soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 3 green onions thinly sliced on the bias
  • ½ teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • garnish with sesame seeds and green onions


  • Trim off the thin layer of fat on the underside of your skirt steak. Be careful to avoid removing too much fat, as skirt steak is already so thin.
  • On the non-fatty side of your skirt steak, make sure any remnants of the membrane are removed. If there are still some remnants, peel them off.
  • Add skirt steak, soy sauce, sesame oil, garlic, green onions, and red pepper flakes to a resealable bag to marinate for 3-4 hours in the refrigerator.
  • Heat a grill to medium high heat (approximately 450°F).
  • Once the grill is heated, grill steak for 4-5 minutes on each side, or until the internal temperature reaches 125°F.
  • Allow steak to rest for 10 minutes. Slice against the grain.
  • Serve over a bed of rice, and garnish with sesame seeds and green onions.
