Native Breed Beef – Skirt – 1kg

Skirt comes from low down on the animal in the lower belly close to the onglet (hanger steak). As with many of the less popular cuts it has surprising depth of flavour at the expense of being quite tough if not treated properly. Like onglet and bavette it should be cooked either very quickly at a high heat or very slowly at a low heat.

Beef skirt steak is a cut of beef that comes from the diaphragm muscles of the animal, situated between the abdomen and the chest. It’s known for its rich beefy flavour and fibrous texture, making it a favourite among beef enthusiasts who appreciate its distinct taste and versatility in cooking.

Characteristics and Cooking Tips:

  • Full of Flavour and Fibrous: Skirt steak is marbled with fat, which contributes to its robust flavor and moistness when cooked. It has a pronounced beefy taste that stands up well to strong marinades and spices.
  • Marinating: Due to its fibrous nature, skirt steak benefits from marinating, which helps to tenderize the meat. Ingredients like vinegar, lemon juice, or lime juice not only add flavor but also break down the tough fibres, making the steak more tender.
  • Quick Cooking: Skirt steak is best cooked quickly over high heat, such as grilling, broiling, or pan-searing, to achieve a charred exterior while keeping the inside tender and juicy. It’s crucial not to overcook skirt steak, as it can become tough; medium-rare to medium is often considered the ideal doneness.
  • Cutting Against the Grain: After cooking, it’s important to let the steak rest for a few minutes before slicing. Cutting the steak against the grain (across the muscle fibres) is essential for maximizing tenderness, making it easier to chew and enjoy.

 

Culinary Uses:

Skirt steak is exceptionally versatile and can be used in a variety of dishes. It’s famously used in Mexican cuisine for fajitas and is also excellent for stir-fries, steak salads, sandwiches, or simply served as a main dish with sides. The key to unlocking its full potential lies in proper preparation and cooking, ensuring a balance between its natural flavor and the added seasonings or marinades.
