Thai Grilled Skirt Steak is my recipe of the day. I had bought a skirt steak on deep discount and decided to do a Thai marinade on it. I’d  done fajitas not too long ago and wanted something different. Thai was perfect.

What does Thai steak taste like?

Thai flavors encompass a balance of hot, sour, salty and sweet. You will find  those flavors here:

Hot: Chilli Paste

Sour: Fresh Lime Juice

Salty: Fish Sauce

Sweet: Brown Sugar

The flavors combine perfectly and the taste is unmistakable. After marinating for several hours, the steak is simply grilled to perfect doneness with a bit of char.

I sliced mine up and served it with a simple side of asparagus. And I made some Pad Thai without meat to serve on the side. It was enjoyed by all.
