|Grilled Skirt Steak|
I provided you with my grilled flank recipe previously, so I will just send you there if you are looking for that. But today I wanted to give you a report on a piece of skirt steak I purchased at Costco.

The meat in the package is seasoned as noted and said to be marinated so it will be tender. Tender it certainly is. Almost fork tender. Whatever the marinade is, it certainly is absorbed into the meat and tenderizes it beyond recognition. There was no hearty beefy flavor left, just the flavor of the seasoning. It wasn't a bad flavor, just not a beefy flavor. It was rather salty. Worse yet, the marinade seems to have changed the texture completely. One of my guests thought it was ham. It does have a very similar texture, even if the look on the outside is more like beef.
