Rich and buttery, this Skirt Steak with Red Pepper Puree will knock your socks off. This is a complete meal on it’s own and is so easy to make!  

Skirt steak is not super tender and will need marinating.  This recipe’s short marinade in fish sauce will add unique flavor but not overpower. Yes, fish sauce seems a strange choice for a steak marinade, but once you taste it, you’ll understand. It doesn’t add any fish flavor, just a savory, briny taste that is delicious.

Because skirt steak is a thin cut, it is great for cooking in a cast iron skillet on the stove. And talk about easy clean-up, you can use one skillet to prepare this entire meal.   If you are lucky enough to be a year-round griller, you can make it that way too! Just make the vegetables on the side.
