Teriyaki SteakOnce marinated, this is a very easy main dish.   Simply grill the steak to the desired doneness using your grill, a grilling fry pan, or your broiler.

You can use bottled marinade from the store but it is more fun to make your own.  We tried a number of teriyaki marinade recipes.  We cut the resulting steaks into cubes and paraded crew members (plus an appliance repairmen who was there to replace a microwave) by to try them out.  Everyone voted on the best steak.  The results were not unanimous so our top three are listed below.

Ingredients

4 6-ounce skirt steaks or similar beef cuts
vegetable oil
salt and pepper

Directions

  1. Prepare the marinade.  Cover the steaks with marinade and let sit for up to 24 hours.
  2. Remove the steaks from the marinade and blot off any excess marinade.
  3. Cook over medium-high heat until the meat reaches the desired doneness turning 1/4 turn to achieve grill marks.  Salt and pepper if necessary.
  4. Remove the steaks from the grill and let sit for three to five minutes.  Cut on the bias and serve.
