Skirt steak is one of the most flavourful cuts of beef, and even though it's also one of the tougher cuts with a lot of connective tissue, it's still a great steak for grilling. Since skirt steak is tough, the best way to cook it is very quickly over the hottest grill you can get. As a matter of fact, some people will even skip the grill altogether and cook it directly on the coals. This actually works quite well, because you do not want to overcook skirt steak.
Most importantly, skirt steak absolutely must be sliced thinly against the grain. Because it's so long, your best bet is to cut it into shorter sections first and then slice those sections across the grain.
We dry age our beef for a minimum of 14 days (the Skirt Steak is removed before dry aging). All of our meat is humanely handled and inspected in facilities licensed by the province of Alberta.
