  1. 1 pound skirt steak
  2. 1/4 cup low-sodium soy sauce
  3. 1/4 cup olive oil
  4. 2 limes, juiced
  5. 2 tablespoons minced garlic
  6. 2 tablespoons, chopped cilantro
  7. 1 tablespoon Maggi seasoning sauce
  8. 1 tablespoon sugar
  9. 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt


Clean and trim the excess fat and tissue from steak. The steak may need to be cut down to a size that will lay flat on the grill or cast-iron skillet.

In a glass or plastic bowl, combine the soy sauce, oil, lime juice, garlic, cilantro, Maggi seasoning and sugar. Place the clean steak in the marinade and let marinate 4 hours or overnight in the refrigerator.

Remove meat from the refrigerator and let sit out at room temperature for 20 minutes. Heat a grill or cast-iron skillet to high. Place the meat on the hot grill or skillet. Cook for 2 to 4 minutes a side. Place the meat on a cutting board and let rest.

Cut the steak into 2-inch thick pieces, then turn and cut against the grain. Sprinkle meat with salt and serve.
