Smoked skirt steak & onions

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Skirt steak has become one of my favorite beef cuts for the smoker - it smokes quick and tastes great, so it's a great weekday smoke for those who are 9-to-5ers! The only thing is that it's usually expensive compared to other cuts. I found some on sale last week and it was great...

Marinated the steak in mojo...

Smoked the steak and a large vidalia onion at 200* for a little more than an hour - I don't bother using a probe with this meat, since it's so thin, cooks quickly and I finish it with a sear on the grill anyway...

The sliced steak and the finished onion.. I sprinkled the onion with Strawberry's Championship Rub that I got from Rivet. Thanks dude! That stuff was great on the onion and the onion and steak were GREAT together!

Thanks for checking it out.

Nice looking smoke.
I smoked my first Skirt steak last week and I agree with you on it being a great piece of meat to smoke. I just used some OO and a dry rub and it cam out great.

That looks great, definitely something to put on the list. Next time skirt steak goes on sale that is.

Nice steak there. PDT_Armataz_01_37.gifToo expensive here though. I can find rib eyes on sale cheaper.

Hey Meatball, glad you liked the rub. You skirt steak looked awesome and definitely one of my favourites to grill. I understand about the price- it's ridiculous how much they want for a package.

Found a way to get around that though....I talked to my grocery store butcher (this was last year) and he said they came in 25LB boxes and they cut them up from there. If I wanted a whole box, he'd sell it to me for what turned out to be 1/2 price. Having a deepfreeeze, I got it. Ended up being $2.29/lb, which to me, for skirt is pricey but a heck of a lot better than 4 something.

You certainly did good on your smoke! PDT_Armataz_01_37.gif

That's awesome! I have become friendly with our store's butcher too, might have to ask him about that. Yeah, it's very rare that you find skirt for less than $4.99/lb. here, so when I do find it cheaper, I have to get it. It's too bad that it's so expensive...Like Ron said, you can often find ribeyes cheaper and ribeyes are so juicy and tasty, it's hard to justify spending for the skirt.
