Citrus Marinated Skirt Steak


 Grilling season is here! To me, nothing beats the flavor of steak when its marinated and grilled. It cooks super quickly so the meat remains nice and juicy, sealing in that yummy flavor. This marinade is low in salt and sugar, and instead contains a ton of citrus zest and juice and jalapeno for a nice kick. Serve the steak on top of leafy greens, with a side of sweet potato mash or with grilled veggies.




1. Combine marinade ingredients in a small bowl.


2. Place skirt steak in a ziploc bag and pour 1/2 of the marinade over. Seal the bag and place in the fridge for at least 4 hours (preferably overnight). Reserve the remaining marinade in a separate bowl in the fridge.


3. Remove steak from the fridge 30 minutes before grilling. Preheat grill to medium-high. Cook steak for 4 minutes per side (for medium rare), brushing with marinade as you go. 


4. Let the steak rest for 10 minutes, then slice.
