Grilled Hoisin Beef

Rated as 4.52 out of 5 Stars

"The (underrated) hoisin sauce is a thickened, fermented soy-sauce-like substance, flavored with chilies, garlic, vinegar, sugar, and, of course, exotic spices. It makes a great marinade. And unless you horribly overcook it, this skirt steak is juicy and tender."

  1. Whisk hoisin sauce, vinegar, soy sauce, hot sauce, sesame oil, grated ginger, garlic, brown sugar, salt, and pepper together in a large mixing bowl.
  2. Cut skirt steak crosswise into about 4 or 5 smaller pieces. Transfer steak into marinade and toss until all pieces are evenly coated. Cover with plastic wrap. Refrigerate; marinate at least 2 hours and up to 12 hours.
  3. Line a baking pan with paper towels. Transfer pieces of steak to the paper towels and mop off some of the marinade.
  4. Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat and lightly oil the grate.
  5. Transfer steak pieces to grill. Cook to medium rare or medium, 4 to 5 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read between 130 and 135 degrees F (about 54 degrees C). Thinner pieces might finish earlier. Transfer steak to a warm plate. Let rest for a few minutes.
  6. Transfer steak to a warm serving platter and pour any accumulated juices over skirt steak. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and sliced green onions.

use less sesame oil - also has a sweet hoisin flavor - used ribeye and it might have made it a little tender

instead of sesame oil I used a vegetable oil substitute, it turned out just fine. The grilling directions are a little "iffy." If you know your grill, just realize it's a thin cut and may need m...

My family liked it a lot. We followed the recipe from the video and it turned out great! Thanks Chef John for another great recipe.

Wonderful! We used flank steak and marinated it for a few hours. I'm looking forward to trying this again, maybe with chicken next time. I'm not sure about the effort comments, we found it to...

This is a tasty meal. The meat is so flavorful. You could probably use this marinade with other meats as well.

The flavor is amazing!! I’m not crazy about Skirt Steak as it is real fatty but the family loved the meal!! I saved some additional sauce and threw in some chicken to marinate for tonight!!

This was quite tasty. First time I followed recipe exactly and everyone enjoyed it but we like a little more heat so second time around I omitted the brown sugar and added crushed red pepper fla...

Absolutely the best marinade for this steak I have tried. Johns directions were precise during the grilling period. I did bring my temp probe just to make sure. Needles to say everyone went back...
