Thai Grilled Skirt Steak
1 large garlic clove, peeled
1-2 small hot chili peppers, stemmed and seeded
2 tablespoons sugar
1/2 cup fresh lime juice
1/3 cup fish sauce (nam pla)
3 pounds skirt steak cut in 2 pieces
Salt to taste
1/2 cup minced fresh mint leaves
Prepare a hot grill.
In a small food processor, combine the garlic, chili peppers, sugar, lime juice and fish sauce and blend until smooth.
Grill the steak until medium-rare, about 3 minutes per side. Don’t overcook or the meat will be tough. Slice the steak with a bias-cut against the grain. Stir the fresh mint into the sauce and serve on the side. Makes 8 servings.
