Best cooking method:
Skirt is a really thin cut with a good amount of marbling and great flavor. You can marinate or just season it with salt and pepper. Because of how thin it is, it’s preferable to sear it on the stovetop. It may not even need to be transferred to the oven to finish. If you’re using it for fajitas or tacos, slice it into small strips.
Be careful if you’re going to grill a skirt; it’s very thin and might flare up. It’s also not great for leftovers. Reheating can make it rubbery. It’s best eaten cold.
