  1. Place the steak on a sturdy surface, and pound flat using a meat mallet: first with the flat side, then with the pointed side. Try to get an even thickness of about 1/2"-3/4" across the steak so that it cooks evenly.
  2. Place the meat in a non-reactive container, and add the remaining ingredients. Stir and toss to combine. Refrigerate for at least one hour, up to four hours.
  3. Preheat your grill to 500-600 degrees F (very hot).
  4. Grill the steak for 3-4 minutes per side, until desired internal temperature is achieved. For skirt steak, we like a nice even medium (whereas with other cuts, we would almost always go medium rare).
  5. Remove from the grill, and allow to rest for 5-10 minutes before slicing. Slice against the grain, on a bias, for best results.
