  • 4 cloves Garlic chopped
  • ½ tsp Kosher Salt
  • 1 dash Ground Black Pepper
  • 2 lbs Beef Skirt Steak

Cilantro Lime Butter

  • ¼ cup Salted Butter softened, if you don't have salted you may add salt

  • 1 ⅓ tsp Salt or more to taste

Cilantro Lime Butter

  • This can be prepared while the steak is resting or at the time you prepare the marinade. Refrigerate until needed.

Cooking Steak

  • Take the steak out of the refrigerator 45 minutes before you plan to cook it.
  • Preheat an outdoor grill.
  • Pat the steak dry, brush off the garlic pieces so they won't burn and discard the marinade.
  • Grill the steak for 2 minutes per side for medium or unit it reaches your desired cook temperature.
  • Transfer the steak to a plate, tent with foil, and allow to rest for 5 to 10 minutes.
  • Slice on the diagonal (against the grain) into strips. Top with the cilantro-lime butter and serve with lime wedges.
