Skirt Steak with Sauteed Lemon Mushrooms

Skirt steak is on of the most amazing cuts of steak, in our humble opinion. Every time we place an order with US Wellness Meats we absolutely have to order a skirt steak, because theirs are always mouth watering! We drool over every cut of meat we receive from US Wellness, but skirt steak is definitely one of our top picks.

Skirt steak is one of those cuts of beef where it almost seems like a crime to do anything to it beyond a sprinkle of salt and a quick flip on the grill, so for this recipe we did just that. Salt, and a grill: that is all you need with skirt steak. To take the steak to the next level, we sauteed some white mushrooms in butter, garlic, and lemon zest. Amazing. This meal was totally drool-worthy, and I think we were both sad to see it end!

This one one of the meals that we enjoyed on The 21 Day Sugar Detox, and we highly recommend adding it to your Sugar Detox menu as well!

      I made this recipe the other night, and LOVED it! I cooked the steak in a pan a-la-primal-blueprint, but threw these mushrooms on top. So delish! Ate the leftover 'shrooms w/ some eggs, bacon and avocado. Yum!
