  • Cusine



For the sauce:

1 medium garlic clove

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 cup coarsely chopped cilantro

1/4 cup olive oil

2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

1/8 teaspoon cayenne

For the steak:

1 teaspoon ground cumin

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

2 pounds skirt steak, cut to manageable grilling sizes


Combine the steak spices in a small bowl. Pat the steak dry so that the surface is tacky, then rub the spice mixture into both sides. Turn on the burner to high under the grill pan to get it heating. Meanwhile, mince the garlic and mash to a paste with the salt . Transfer to a blender or mini food processor with the rest of the sauce ingredients, and blend until smooth. Rub the grill pan with a bit of oil, and grill the steak about 5 minutes per side for a typical cut . Once it’s cooked and rested, slice thinly and drizzle with the sauce.
