For the Marinade and Grilling:

  • 2/3 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 cup fresh orange juice
  • 1/3 cup fresh lime juice
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
  • 3 tablespoons apple cider or red wine vinegar
  • 4 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 pound skirt steak
  • Salt and pepper to taste

For the Chimichurri Sauce:

  • 1 cup fresh parsley
  • 1 cup fresh cilantro
  • 1/4-1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 medium onion diced
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • Optional: 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes


For the Marinade and Grilling:

  • Whisk all of the ingredients together and pour into a large ziploc bag.
  • Add skirt steak to ziploc bag with marinade and allow to marinade up to 6-7 hours max depending on how thick the meat is.
  • When ready to grill, liberally season with salt and pepper.
  • Grill until golden brown and perfectly charred then allow to rest before slicing on a cutting board.

For the Chimichurri:

  • Add all of the ingredients to a heavy duty blender or food processor and blend until everything is chopped up and smooth then serve. Seriously that easy.


After grilling your steak and allowing it to rest , is the best time to cut it. Take your steak and always cut against the grain in thin slices.
