Skirt steak is a delicious cut for the grill. While it is full of flavor, it is also tough and fibrous, so marinating for a few hours or more is your best bet. This cut is also a thinner cut than most other steaks and typically requires only a few minutes over direct heat on the grill. Check out our friend BBQ Tourist's marinade recipe for skirt steak!

- Zest and juice of 1 lime
- 1/2 cup of olive oil

To make the skirt steak marinade, mix the cilantro, soy sauce, lime zest and juice, olive oil, brown sugar, cumin, salt, pepper, and garlic in a bowl. Stir until well combined.
Completely cover the skirt steak with the marinade and refrigerate for at least two hours.
