Equipment

Ingredients

Marinade

  • 1/3 cup lime juice
  • 1/3 cup soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons garlic minced
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoons ginger minced
  • 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
  • 2 green onions thinly sliced

Other Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 pounds skirt steak
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Make the marinade: In a zip-lock bag, add garlic, lime juice, soy sauce, olive oil, Worcestershire sauce, ginger, Italian seasoning, and green onions.
  • Add skirt steak to the bag, close the bag and coat the meat thoroughly. Let it marinate for 30 minutes to 2 hours in the refrigerator.
  • Sous Vide the steak: When the steak is ready, remove the steak from the marinade and place it in a new zip-lock bag.
  • Seal all but one corner of the bag, and slowly place it in the water bath. Make sure everything below the zip-line is covered by water. Then seal the rest of the bag.
  • Add water to the sous vide container or a large pot, set the Sous Vide Precision Cooker to 130°F (54°C) for medium rare doneness. This is my recommended doneness, and if you’d like to cook it more or less, follow the temperature guide in the post above.
  • When the water has reached the set temperature, lower the bag into the water bath and make sure it is fully submerged.
  • Cook for 2-4 hours. (Your steak will be ready after 2 hours, but you can leave it in the sous vide water bath for 4 hours total.)
  • Prepare for proper searing: When your steak is cooked, remove the bag from the water bath and transfer it to the refrigerator. Let it chill for 10 minutes.
  • Remove the steak from the bag and wipe off any extra moisture from the cooked steak with paper towel.
  • Season with salt and pepper.
  • Sear the steak: Heat your grill to 450°F (232°C) or place the skillet on medium-high heat. When the grill reaches the set temperature or the pan is very hot, add your steak and sear about 1 minute per side.
  • Slice your steak thinly and serve with your favorite steak sauce.

Notes

Trim the fat: Prepare the skirt steak by trimming off the fat layer. Also, peel off any remaining membrane from the surface of the meat.
