Skirt Steak with Pico de Gallo!

This simple steak dinner is a perfect summer meal. It utilized the grill so clean up is quick and the pico de gallo is light and refreshing! I made this for my boyfriends BBQ last weekend and it was a total hit!

Skirt Steak with Pico de Gallo!


  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 1 orange, juiced
  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 jalapeno, seeded
  • 1/4 cup cilantro leaves
  • 2 pound trimmed skirt steak
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste


  1. Combine all the ingredients together with the exception of the steak to make the marinade. Pour the mixture into a plastic bag and add the steak. Seal and marinate this for up to 8 hours in the refrigerator.
  2. Once the steaks have soaked up all that delicious flavor remove them from the bag and let sit at room temperature for 15-20 minutes. Fire up the grill to medium high heat. Place the skirt steaks over the heat and grill on each side for about 4-5 minutes so the steak is still pink in the middle. Remove steaks from grill and let rest for 5 minutes before slicing them at an angle.
  3. Place all meat onto a serving dish and top with your favorite recipe for pico de gallo and serve!
