Grilled Buffalo Skirt Steak Recipe

Grilled Buffalo Skirt Steak Recipe
Yasmin Fahr

Sometimes it's amazing what can be done with just a grill, charcoal, a hose, a fantastic piece of meat, and some great ingredients. In fact, the outcome is this delicious recipe. During what we refer to as our 'renegade BBQ,' where we literally hijacked our friend's backyard when he wasn't home to use his grill, we made this lovely dish below. (This meant that we had no access to any of the modern-day applicances that we take for granted, except for a hose.)

With one cutting board, a paring knife, and a host of basic ingredients (salt, pepper, oil, herbs, and spices), we threw together this fantastic meal, which means you can recreate this on your own while camping or 'glamping.' Or, of course, you can always do it in your backyard with access to your kitchen sink (might be a little easier). Check out the other recipes we managed to make while on this renegade mission.

  • One 1-pound buffalo NY strip steak, preferably Wild Idea Buffalo
  • Olive oil
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • ½ tablespoon chopped scallions
  • ½ bunch parsley, chopped
  • 1 serrano pepper, sliced thinly
  • Juice of 1 lime


Coat the steak with olive oil and generously salt and pepper it. Combine it with the remaining ingredients except for the lime juice. Let sit for about 10-15 minutes while you heat up the grill to high heat (about 450 degrees) or hot charcoals. 

When the grill is ready, squeeze some of the lime juice on top, reserving the rest for when the steak if finished. Place the steak on the grill over direct heat, cooking for about 3-4 minutes per side or until the internal temperature reaches 130 degrees for medium rare. 

Remove from the grill and let rest for 5-10 minutes. Slice across the grain and top with the remaining lime juice and serve immediately.
