Marsala Marinated Skirt Steak

Rated as 4.53 out of 5 Stars

"I was in Santa Monica a few years ago, where I ordered a chicken Parmesan that featured a garlic, rosemary, and Marsala-spiked sauce. I loved the subtle sweetness the wine added to the tomato. For whatever reason, I thought of those flavors while brainstorming a quick skirt steak marinade, and this is what happened. Skirt steak is always great on the grill and doesn't need much help, but I love how this came out."

Directions

  1. Whisk Marsala wine, ketchup, garlic, kosher salt, rosemary, and black pepper together in a large glass or ceramic bowl. Add skirt steak and turn to evenly coat. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap, and marinate in the refrigerator, 8 hours to overnight.
  2. Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat, and lightly oil the grate.
  3. Remove steak from marinade, shake off excess, and discard marinade.
  4. Cook steak on the preheated grill until meat shines, 3 to 4 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 130 degrees F (54 degrees C). Transfer meat to a plate and let rest at least 5 minutes before slicing against the grain.

Well this was just OK. I marinated it for 7 hours and the flavor was SO INTENSE. In the video chef john says he only marinated it for half the time. That may be the key to this recipe. I didn't ...

I've made this several times with either flank or skirt steak. I marinate it overnight and while it does have a strong flavor, I think it's just right. No sauce needed!! I usually use a grill pa...

I enjoyed the flavor of this. I was SO committed to using skirt steak, but then sirloin was buy-1-get-1 free, and I couldn't resist that deal. It wasn't the same tenderness I was hoping for wh...

Excellent marinade! I've used it for both skirt steak and flank steak. Grilled very rare. Heated leftover marinade and poured over sliced steak.
