Week #6 - Pesto Butter Skirt Steak


About the Cut



 Wells Farms Premium Skirt Steak - Wells Farms local meats raised near Madison, WI

Skirt Steak

This long and very thin cut is known for its robust flavor profile.  It is the perfect cut to marinate and grill hot for fajitas or use for stir -fry or slice for salads. Skirt steaks come from the Plate Primal which is the section right under the rib primal and tends to have higher fat content.  It is also the home of short ribs and ground beef.  Slicing beef against the grain is always important, but even more so for thin, course cuts such as the Skirt Steak.  
Optimal Cooking Methods:
Grill, Pan-broil, Pan Sear, or Broil.

We found this to be a great side dish to accompany the steak (and many other proteins!).  It's become one of our favorite potato recipes lately.
