  • Combine olive oil, lime juice, orange juice, soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce and garlic in a small bowl and whisk to combine. Sprinkle skirt steak with salt and pepper on both sides and add to marinade in a large bowl or zip lock bag. Let marinade in the fridge at least 30 minutes or overnight.
  • When ready to cook, get your grill very hot (over 500F). Remove steak from marinade and place on grill, cook for 3-4 minutes then flip and cook and additional 3-4 minutes or until steak is at your preferred temperature.
  • Remove from grill and let rest 10 minutes before slicing against the grain. Serve with Easy Chimichurri Sauce for the perfect finish. Enjoy of its own, as tacos or fajitas!
