This is the most requested main dish in my house. Everyone loves it and that is a rare thing indeed! These steaks are almost too simple to believe and they turn out great every single time. So tender and flavorful - you just can't mess them up! The adobo seasoning is quite salty, so keep that in mind as you season the steaks.

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Season skirt steak pieces all over with adobo seasoning.

  • Heat olive oil and butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook steak in hot oil and butter, turning often, until steak begins to firm, and is reddish-pink and juicy in the center, 6 to 8 minutes.

Cook's Note:

I usually end up popping them in the microwave on a microwaveable serving platter for another minute or two to prevent over-browning, yet assuring that they are done all the way through.

I appreciate the warning about the adobo seasoning. I do use adobo but sparingly as it is laden w/ sodium. I couldn't see myself adding more (salt) to the steak - for a quick steak this was easy but lacked a wow factor for me. Read More

I'm very happy with this. Honestly it's my new favorite way to make steak and even when I overcook it to medium-well it's still super tender and flavorful. It might not have a crazy twist or be complex but it's still delicious! Read More
