  • Rub the marinade on the steaks and let stand at room temperature for at least 30 minutes or refrigerate for up to 24 hours.

  • Light a grill. Grill the steaks over moderately high heat, turning occasionally, until medium-rare, about 6 minutes for skirt steak and 12 minutes for the flank. Let the steaks rest for 5 minutes, then thinly slice across the grain and serve.

Chef's Notes
