Prep Time: 1 hour Cook Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 Pound bison skirt steak
  • 1/2 Teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 Teaspoon pepper
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely minced
  • Pinch of red pepper flakes
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil

Directions

Season the skirt steak with salt and pepper and place in a large resealable plastic bag. Add in the lemon zest, garlic, red pepper flakes, and olive oil. Seal the plastic bag and massage ingredients into skirt steak to incorporate evenly. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour or up to 24 hours.

Prepare grill for direct-heat cooking over charcoal or high heat for gas grill. Remove skirt steak from refrigerator and take out of the plastic bag to place on a plate. Remove any large chunks of garlic. Let skirt steak sit at room temperature for 15 minutes.

Place skirt steak on hot grill and cook for about 5 minutes until meat releases easily from the grill. Flip meat over and cook for another 5 minutes for medium-rare. Transfer meat to a cutting board and let it rest for 5 minutes before slicing. Slice across the grain into thin strips.

Grill Shopping Tip

Think twice before buying a thicker piece of meat; a 2-inch thick steak takes four times (not twice) as long as 1-inch thick steak to cook.

Grill Cooking Tip

If you're cooking something that's been marinated, make sure to pat the item dry before it hits the grill. Any sugar in the marinade will burn.
